I guess what I am trying to say is that it is a new paradigm to believe that much of the work that is done in B&W photography through filters can now be done with a computer. This is not to say that I doubt anything that Hards80 has written, I am just saying I feel I am stepping out of time warp or something and have a lot of things to learn, even relearn.

You take care, Ed. I woke this morning to snowfall that has left Finland, once again, into a real winter wonderland.

All the best.

one thing i like to add Ned. the filter effects in camera, and the default settings for many editors is pretty strong, i.e. they tend to be a very very strong red or green filter in my opinion.

doing it in post-processing means i can adjust the intensity down a bit. which i think really makes those green, red, etc filters look much better than their default intensities.

i am sure you will really enjoy the level of customization you have with your black and white photos once you get a chance to try. it's really quite fun and enjoyable to see the flexibility you have.

A stunning set of images, Ed. I can't say which is my favorite because I like all four so well. I really like the soft tone and color balance.

Thanks Patty, Ned, Hans and Paul. Hans they are really quite easy especially Regan. She likes her photos.

Paul I did adjust the color balance by adding a smidgin of red, magenta and yellow.

Hi Paul! I am with you, Ed has takens some good photos, utilitizing soft tones and all. The second picture shows mood, thought. I like the third and fourth, especially. The third makes as nice portrait. These are all good photos... and it is really neat to see people in the forum chiming in with appreciate and even constructive comments.

Take care, Paul, and all the best.
