    I really like all the different textures. But I especially like all the shadows

    Excellent set. The amount of contrast and tonal range is just perfect. The composition is dynamic. And the emotional impact is immediate.

    Thanks for all the comments folks I really appreciate them

    Arch, a mixture of techniques again....

    1 is IR with a high contrast mono conv.
    2 is just a straight high contrast mono conv.
    3 & 4 is using the Tone Mapping plug-in from the Photomatix site on a 16bit TIFF and the B&W conversion is using channel mixer.
    5. A combination of various things, a layer that has been Tone Mapped, a layer that's had selective desaturation various levels and curves layers using a number of blending options. I'm really not sure no. 5 works very well but I like the idea

    I've been using this action for nice contrasty B&W conversions lately. Really nice action. Not as much control as Wally's but pretty good most of the time.

    Cheers,

    Mohain

    They all particularly have a dark and cold mood to them, which makes them quite interesting. I immediatly thought of George Orwell's book 1984. The most striking I find are #'s 1and 4. Well done and composed, enjoyed them throughly,
    Just cruzin to the viewing
