  2. Dez, they are all great, but composition on the third one is over the top. Your work always impresses me.
     
  3. Thanks Jeff :smile:
     
  4. Well done Dez! The first image is my favorite and if it were mine I would would have it framed hanging on my office wall. I can't help but remember the shock and emotion I felt on that tradgic day when I view these shots.
    The b&w conversion works especially well on these.
     
  5. Thanks Darrell. I am planning on framing this but I'm running out of room!

    Your comments are appreciated.
     
  6. Dez,

    These are amazing images! May I ask how you go about your B&W conversions?

  7. Thank you Glenn.

    First off, I shoot Raw and in color. I'll edit & adjust the photo with simple Levels and perspective adjustments.

    Than for B&W, I use PhotoShop CS3 Black & White tool. It lets you adjust each color channel, so I play around with each until I get the look that I like. It's quite simple.

    Dez,

    What a great series. How did you do the B&W conversion? It looks great.

    They're all stunners, but #1 does it for me.

    I can't wait until I get home...!
     
  11. Thanks :smile:
     
  12. Dez love these even more in B&W than in colour. They are stunning.
    Also had a look at your site at the rest that you shot and I was surprised to see that the beams of light are made up of many smalller beams together...I really like that picture also.

  13. Thanks Barb. It was my first time shooting the lights. I wanted to do it considering that the City will probably stop doing it after this year :frown:
