Thanks, Jeanie. I made an action from that a while back, but (LOL) the results of moving the sliders appeared to my ignorant eye to be random. I guess I don't have an instinct for color interplay, so just light and dark is about all I can handle for now.
Thanks, Bill

Wow Bill M
You and Jeanie have been really busy today.. I really appreciate your explanation of your technique.. I really admire those B&W pics with the great contrast but never had a clue about how to approach them before.. I guess I am going to give it a shot now.

Thanks again for your help

Jerry

HMMM.. I wonder if a "Black & White conversion" thread would be helpful.. Hint Hint..Your the teacher..

Just wanted to say what great work all of you have done on this one, this has been a great thread to watch.

Bill M, your b+w is perfectly done, kudos to your touch in the "darkroom".

FYI, Danny Raphael has a great action that allows you to see and compare almost all the b+w conversion methods available at one time, including Russell Brown's. The action and explanation of different conversion techniques are here:

Thanks, Pam. Yes, I have Danny's action.
Jerry, I think a black and white thread is a great idea. I'm not ready to start one myself though. This time next week you'll have as much experience with it as I do! Everything I know is above in this tread. I never cared about b&w until my daughter gave me an Ansel Adams calendar for Christmas.

But here's my thoughts:
--there are many books on Ansel Adams
--there are many books on b&w photography
--every book on digital photography mentions it
--many people do it and have galleries on the web

If anyone has experience or references on the subject, by all means let's fire up a thread now. With my usual bulldog tenacity, I'm going to see if there is a code to break on this, at least that suits MY taste. I think we all know the several ways to basically convert, but I want to research what to do after that.
Bill

Phyliss, nice colored pencil, I like the gold tone top of trees.
Jerry I love the way you featured the wagon and the second sub illusion.
Bill C your has a very nice softness effect.
Amanda nice composition, I think I would like the farmer and wagon a little sharper then the rest .
Black night I like thre painting effect, works well.
Ken nice B&W and frame.SEc one erffect is different.
REtmiki nice hand coloring.
Bill M yours reminds me of an Ansel Adams zone system graeat tonal range.

I tried for a water coloring, but I think its more of a hand coloring, with accent lighting on wagon

I have been watching all the submissions for this image and have just been blown away by all the wonderful work!

I have been playing with the cut out filter today -- so here is my submission.
