  2. These are great shots John. The elderly make for wonderful models. Thanks for the great series .......

    Best,
     
  3. Thanks Bob - age does bring character (and boy, am I getting a lot of character :wink:).
     
  4. The first and second shots are almost damn near perfect. I may have cropped the second shot from the right a bit, but that is just a personal taste. These are really fun.

    I know I ask this question all the time, but have you tried those two in B&W?
     
  5. I agree about the crop on the second one, I wish I'd had a better a angle to get more of the sea in shot. I have not tried them in B&W but will do so. Thanks for the tip.
