That's the one Tess likes too, you two are ganging up on me. I think I want image #4 printed 40 inches wide.

I like #2 and the last one. It would be interesting to see them in a gritty B&W.

I did reduce saturation, and then brought spot saturation back in selected areas to give them a selective colour feel, without going all the way. But I'd do a couple where I don't think the loss of colour robs the image of some appeal..

I especially like the second B&W one. In the color versions, the chain is incongruous (and therefore interesting) against the regularity of the grid, while in the B&W ones, I focus on the shape of the chain vs. the straight lines of the grid.

Cool stuff.

Thanks Jer, I just found this so cool, I guess it's just me and you... Kerrowdown just wants to win some money.

I'm still thinking I might go back with the 50 macro and try and get everything parallel and distortion free. I don't mind a bit of distortion in landscapes but, on shots like this you want a lens that's been designed for flat images.
