I keep coming back to your photo. I really like the visual lines, but it seems flat. Have you tried adjusting the tonal mapping or contrast??

I am trying to learn more about B&W conversion. I find it one of the most difficult forms. Looking at at your picture it seems to be missing something, but I can not explain what. I found this on another forum I visit.

wow, very nice... great detail, color, and very sharp. I think it would be a wall hanger.

Good Morning, There is a gentleman on the Photochimper site that does great B&W. You might take a look at his posting on his work flow.

Thank you for all the great feedback. i went back and tweaked the original to try and make the color pop. I decided not to try and level it because the deer are standing on a small hill side and I feel like the picture loses that when I level it.

Very nice, great DOF and color. The only thing I might try is cropping it to make the flower standout more but over all it is really a nice picture.

Hi

I like the cropping on number 2 and the color of number 3. All three of them need some straighting. All the buildings seems to be leaning slightly to the left. The color in number 1 and 2 needs some work. Were this taken from a boat or pier??

A real great set. Of the three, the 3rd is my favorite. Every element of the picture adds interest and the color and contrast is well done. The second seems to have just a little to much empty sky for me.

Thank you for the comment. It did help. I was worried about losing the feel of the lay of the land.

Thank you for the warm welcome. A little bit about the name. the NM is for New Mexico and bubblehead is the slang term for a submarine sailor. While I was in the Navy, I spent about 4 years under the water. Maybe traveling with the little green men would not be all that bad. At least they have windows :D.

I think I would start by cropping to get rid of the grass at the bottom of the picture. The picture is real sharp and clear, but you might check the levels and lighten the shadows to see if you can get more detail of the mallards head. Just some thoughts.

Hello from the 1947 crash site, but so far the ;little green men have escaped me. Maybe some day I can post one on here :p.

My first film camera was a pentax K1000. I used it for several years until it died. Three years ago I bought a K110D and quickly fell in love with it. It went every where I went. I still have it, but it has fallen into the backup position. Three weeks ago, I got a K20D so i could take advantage of the HSM on the Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens.

I mainly shot outdoor sporting events (grandkids and friends), landscapes, and wildlife, but I am trying to expand. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can. Comments and suggestions are always welcomed anytime I post. I see every picture as a chance to learn and get better.

This was taken outside of Captain NM about 1 hour before sundown. I cropped it this way to catch the feeling of the herd watching me as I moved around. I am looking to learn as much as I can so any and all comments are welcome.

Hi Everyone, I am new to the site and thought I would introduce myself with a picture of a doe that was taken last weekend outside of Roswell, NM. It was shot with a K20D using a Sigma 70-200 at f2.8. She was about 50 yards off the road and I had to crop a lot. The K20D is a real step up from my K110D. Thanks for taking a look and comments and suggestions are always welcomed.
