    I concur that is good one jeisner.

    Thanks prospero. That's what happened, in the future I'll do the "convert" thing. I want to print a few of my recent shots, I can only imagine what that will take!

    EDIT: Whoops!!! I was gonna put this in the dunes thread. I"ll change the pictures, so as not to double post.

    Trees near Lake Tahoe, a B&W conversion of something I just put in the tree thread.

    Prospero, I did this sand dune by the method you suggested and the colors came out exactly the same. Thanks!

    I agree that sand dune is an excellent shot Raven.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Wow, even this thread moves on after a week or two!

    Geoff, Red bush & gnarly tree looks good, I like the colour, composition & the twisted lines of the tree!
    Lukas, I absolutely love shot#1 from Arcata Marsh, the blue-tone is stunning! #3&5 from Davenport work well too. The sea-grass shots are also very interesting, its good to have an interesting element in the foreground of your slow shutter water shots.
    Thombo, the ice-covered trees captured my eye & attention, the image is not common in Sydney.
    Eddie, beautiful sunsets as always, & I also liked the surf & shell shot too!
    Prospero, there is a beautiful quality of light & I like the way the shadows emphasise certain features in your landscapes, both from the French Alps & Glencoe, Scotland, absolutely gorgeous!
    jeisner, that's a great sunset, love the light through the chair!
    raven15, I love both the dune shot & Olympic National Park (I'm a bit of a sucker for boats/water/landscapes )

    Thanks for your comments, the only pp'g applied to the earlier shot, in PictureProject, was low d-lighting & "enhance dark tones" in brightness. (Still have a lot to learn about post-processing, although I'll invest in CNX2 soon )

    So here are a few more shots from Bondi/Ben Buckler Park:

    Nice Benjamin. You have to get down there right after (or before) sunset with a tripod.

    Raven, I really like the sand dune shot. The composition is excellent. You made good use of the pattern in the sand.
    I think you used a polarizer in this shot? If you did, I think the shot may have been better if you hadn't used one. The colour of the sky in the picture is not uniform which often happens if you use a polarizer on a wide angle lens. This is because a polarizer works best at a certain angle with respect to sun, and therefore it polarizes more severly in some parts of the image than in other parts. I think in this case the unequal polarization of the sky is a bit distracting.

    Nice pictures. Investing in CNX2 is well worth the money. It allows you to make great adjustments to your images very easily using control points and selective adjustments.

    My favorite is the last one there Dennis. The contrast between the mountain and the sky works well.
