Thanks Rooz, Love the shots, it looks like he is really having a good time and you have captured it perfectly! the black and white conversion works really well here aswell!
Toriaj - Thanks for the compliment, I was a bit worried about shooting in to the sun but there was nothing i could do about it as the trip to the acropolis was a one time thing so i took the shots anyway! It was actually a really sunny day with no clouds in the sky! It was only f11 because I was using the 10-20mm (which is a slow lens) combined with a polarising filter so it was the smallest i could achieve handheld. Im pleased with how it turned out though, but would like it to be a more contrasty b&w conversion like some other peoples on here (Rooz & Aldor)
Turo - Love the shot, the b&w conversion really makes the boarder pop!
Thanks Toriaj, I was visiting my sister in Park City and we took a day trip up to the Uintas. I took the photo in the middle of the day, but thankfully there were some large, passing clouds that allowed me to get the shutter speed down. I also took this one, which I'm still on the fence about...

More shots of my nephew. He's getting bigger so fast (just over 8kg now). Shot with natural light from a window.
Tiny little church on the side of St. Pauls Bay. Weddings are very popular there but I did not see one whilst i was down there.
Tried using a new PP technique split toning to different shades of yellow/gold
I like it, nice shot & composition :) .. but to my eye .. it's a bit oversharpened and oversaturated assuming you did those two steps and that it wasn't as you saw it.

Not trying to single anyone out but:
Downby5 love that wide angle waterfall, Craig very cool shot at a cool location, Truro that b&w w/b shot is lovelly. Rooz looks like a double for angry anderson nice moment of humanity (the 1st shot), JTL great composition and execution. Achang, something about that kiddie shot just works for me.
