I have not done much shooting recently, so I dabbled with a bit of B&W conversions on some older shots to keep me out of mischief :-)

Jake, very nice! I look at and enjoy so many great photos everyday but #2 is one of those that is a cut above the rest! This is a beautifully composed masterpiece as far as I am concerned!!! Bravo!

Bob

I agree with Bob: I think those conversions have worked really well. #1 and #3 are my favorites, possibly a bit more contrast/detail in the grass in #1 would have made it even better, but they're pretty darn good as they are: certainly as good as anything I see in the local magazines

John.

Thanks John - I've just had my monitor replaced and haven't calibrated it properly yet, so I'm not sure of tha accuracy of colours or contrast. On my son's machine, they look insipid, on my wife's notebook they look reasonable, on mine they look OK, so thanks for that input on the contrast, it will help me to adjust. [and thanks for the favourable comments as well !]
