Swarbees, your shot turned into a wonderful B&W. You must be pleased...I really like that one.

"my spouse and I have looked at the straight reflections on the beach and I can't figure what it is---
he is convinced it is the birds----???"

Now I see that it must be birds reflected -- I didn't remove any pilings or anything--

Southbay---thank you very much. We were looking at your entry and thought it looked a shot out of The Color of Money---very pensive.

Yes, as I recall it...if you were feeling wealthy, you would challenge that particular gent at the table to a game.

Swarbees. That is snow. The whole area was covered in snow through most of the winter last year. The area is also covered with snow mobile trails. So one can ice fish, or ride snow mobiles or stay inside and watch pro football and drink beer.

The farm in the background has a nice buffalo herd roaming around too. And this road is about 1/4 of a mile W of Lake Michigan. Its nice on these winter walks in Wisconsin to have spikes in ones shoes to prevent slipping.

In the background towards the left there is some lake fog, and the clouds were swirly and the road I was walking on was freshly plowed which presented a lot of interesting photo elements.

Re: November 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

spent a day in Utrecht shooting in BW and also tried some auto bracketing. I thought Russell Brown's BW conversion method was interesting

but in the end I used something I saw on DGrin....can't find the thread...but the guy used gradient map on those gold horses in Venice and it was a Wow! conversion
