Hi Hyram,
I kind of like it.(The graphic appearance) Though.....I think it is a bit flat for my likings. And that's the strange thing, I noticed. When opened in levels it shows clipping on the blacks and whites. And on my monitor(calibrated) I don't see true blacks and whites
BTW..if you set the black point and white point in levels,the picture turns into a bit more dramatic. And as an extra bonus the canvas filter you used gets a very grainy (think golf balls size)appearance.

Best regards,


Curious about my photography?? Just Follow the Light.

What a different approach to a simple shot.

No colour but very striking, I like it.
Cheers, HG

Thank you for the comments.

This is a modification of an earlier version which is mono colour.

I just did a straight B & W conversion but I guess that as the earlier version has no true white in it and no black, that would explain Martin's comment about there being no true blacks or whites in this version.

I shall have a further tinker with it.
