    Harley,

    I figured you might, but I had no black and white with me. Maybe next time.

    It is easy to contact print tansparency film to B&W film as well. Or projection print it for that matter. Either way allows use of color filters as well.

    I really like the energy of this one, and it's easier to feel than to describe – the branches seem to carry a powerful centrifugal force radiating away from the center into three of the frame corners (yet there's a quiet center). In fact, I'm curious if you composed this with principal attention to corners. I hope people don't pass by this image without clicking it (the second image on right), for the thumbnail version conceals the energy I'm trying to describe. Simple image, but a jolt of outward-seeking energy.

    The first picture has a beautiful hue to it. :-)

    Harley,

    I have "played" with it in Photoshop but I really could not come up with a look I liked. I can attribute most of that to my lack of expertise with black and white. Next time I am out there, I will have a few sheets of black and white with me and see if I can make it work.

    Thanks for the comment, and actually, yes I was aware of the radiating branches. It is an area I frequent every time out there and I was attracted to the "compositional chaos" of the scene, does that make sense? The detail and texture certainly comes out in a larger print.

    Thank you heroique for making me click on the thumbnail , i agree the image has far more strength once isolated from the other ,And viewed against a solid white BG . Cheers Gary

    Great work Love the colour contrast on the the left ,As far as the image on the right is concerned i agree with a former post this image has more impact than is first apparent on the smaller view , I like it with a little off the top But personal preference .
