    I haven't played around much with the flash on the camera and didn't think about it until I got home but would some flash fill aided this shot? What do you think?
    This is up on Portlands west hills just a few days ago.

    That graveyard makes me think of Rays image :>))

    Nicely done.
  3. Too big an area for flash fill. You have captured this nicely and it is a moody shot.
  4. I agree with Gordon! You've captured quite a mood with this shot!

    EErie and a great capture.

    Love the feel to the picture.

    I think that would actually be good framed - if you dare hang it on the wall:smile:

    Very best wishes

    Pete :

    Really quite nice in the mood here. I don't think fill flash would have added substantially to the photo. Have you tried this with a low sepia or duotone translation from colour ? Might prove interesting with the mood you've captured.

    I played with a couple of tests on your shot. If you want, I could upload them for you...

    graveyard mist

    The mist helps this image. I would be tempted to add a tad more contrast to highlight a little more of the subtle shade transitions.

    Pete :

    This were quick'n'dirty conversions of your JPEG, and hence, not as good as what you could do with the RAW/TIFF image.





    While I have the FM B&W plug-in for PS, these were actually run off quickly with a neat utility that I have called "BWorks", available at BWorks. Works well for quick tests of conversions to B&W or other variants. The last one's called Sepia Burn, which gets the rather dramatic result you can see.

  13. Hi Pete

    I have been trying since yesterday to come up with a simple answer to your question and I finally have it. To heck with flash! It's fine the way it is. I really like the mood that you have captured, the composition is good to my eye, the conversion to B&W and the mist sets it off. John P.s sepia version comes in a close second, IMO.

    John,what can I say? All those you,ve created are very nice! I cant pick a favorite actually.I DO love that last one probably the most but each has thier place and thanks for the info on Bworks I appreicate it. So many digital tools so little time.
