JB,
Your third and fourth could qualify for B&W portraits too (assuming we go beyond humans). :lol:
Nice shots by the way.

Mark,
The first one reminds me of De Beer's advertisement for their diamonds. Very nice treatment on both.

Thanks guys.

Never heard of De Beer or their ads Sury, but the name sounds awfully Dutch to me ;-)

I have been missing some great pictures here.

Really like your animal portraits JB.

Nice view down the road Mark.

I like the variety of tones in that one Henry. Very 3d sky.

Yet again a beautiful long exposure dewarp! The B&W treatment does the scene justice.

I agree. Another grand view Peter.

Colosseum in Rome. Completely unprepared. Came back from a day trip, tired, hungry and restaurants
were full with World cup soccer fans, and saw this with Moon in the sky. I had to do a quick shot lest
the family would cause bodily damage given then state of mind and body. :lol:
