Hehe - thanks Sury - celebrity of a sort, for a day :)

Spurred on by landscapes in B&W I have been going back over my archive to see if there are some pictures that didn't seem to work in colour, but that I might be able to process now in B&E using Silver Efex. Here are a couple. What do you think?

Great shots Andy. I like the first one a little better because of the clouds, but the second one is also nice.

Andy, love the layered composition, the foreground, middle and the background.
Keith, great set. The coffee "mug" (no pun intended) was just fantastic.

Thanks Sury :)

Very nice, Ossie. The curl of steam from the coffee mug is perfect! :)

Great shot of the trees Andy.
Ossie the steam curl is great. I also like the blurry arm movement in the carving photo. Adds to the atmosphere of working in the shop.

No idea why I took this but still he glanced up just as I was taking the shot
