    Raven,

    I would take a look at cropping #2. Crop so that the entire flat foreground in front of the fence is gone and the small portion to the right of the fence as well. I think it frame the image better and pulls you to the horse.

    Thanks, I'll try it out.

    hope I haven't posted this before, can't remember
    No, you haven't. It is the better of the two I think, the man's face seems like it should have been exposed more brightly.

    Ok, how about between these four? Note the different crops.

    A
    B
    C
    D (to keep them separate)
    Thnks!

    Raven, of those I like A & B. It does seem that B might lack any true blacks. The sun is a lot less distracting in the B&W conversions than in the color shot. That could be a lack of quality on my display with gray scale more than a true difference in the images themselves.

    Thanks. You realize B&D are 3:4 and 2:3 crops of the same thing? I can't decide, I like the 3:4 better, but if it is 12x16 vs. 12x18 the 3:2 will show more detail, which I also like better. My photography said the same thing about the sun . Maybe I can print 11 instead of 10, it's only Chinese money, right ?

    ISO 3200? That's very good, you must have done a great job of exposing! Which camera?

    E-1 + 14-54 MkII
    JPEG, run through Noiseware and then an Unsharp Mask in ACDsee Pro. Probably could've done something to suppress the noise reduction artifacting visible in the background by shooting RAW and running it through Studio (which I got a license for with the E-1), but the picture turned out pretty usable as-is.

    I think I might pony up for a professional license for Noiseware... pretty useful software, and intact EXIF data would be nice.

    Talk about digging up the past...

    Had some time to poke around a few thrift stores, dug up this...
    Olympus E-10 with an extremely rare, almost mint condition Olympus TCON-300S super teleconverter. Both were in damn near mint condition, but there was no way I could justify dropping $350 on 'em. They did let me take a picture, though...

    Something pretty, E-1 + 14-54 MkI
    Again, I don't know how to describe it, but the E-1 just does something that makes colours "pop", but without oversaturating them to the point of looking like a cartoon.

    This one, I'm not even sure what it was, but it looked cool. I think maybe a petal? A really big petal, anyways.
