This is a shot I have hung on to for some time. Sometimes you just don’t know what to do with something. Don’t really want to trash it, but can’t seem to get it just the way you want. Being picky can be a good thing. It can also be very time consuming.

Black and white runs through my mind more than it use to. It seems to be growing on me as a photographer. Separations of tones can be just as wonderful as separation or dominance of colors. This b&w was worked up using cs4 b&w adjustment layer. Playing with the red, yellow, blue and cyan sliders really can change the looks of it.

Looks like I’m going to hang on to it longer, always more to improve.
