Greetings,
I'm going crazy with b&w vision. I post processed a image of a purple heron I took some years ago. Leave your comments, hate it or love it. Enjoy...

I'd say everything is about perfect for that style rendition. Has a very pronounced direction. I'm not an art critic, but guess it falls in that category. I like it.

Nothing against the B&W at all but I do think the whites around the head are blown a little. Tone them down some and you got your self a winner.

I'll stand firmly on the Like It squad. That's a very striking image and it makes a great b/w conversion. Very nice.

I like it too, but I've always liked black and white even in the darkroom days of my past!

Greetings,
Thanks. Very encouraging words from you. I have much to learn regarding such B&W style. I just need to go with the feel of how much light to render into the image. Thanks.

B&W is always my love, but to do well, need to learn from many many gurus. Still learning to strike a balance between photography and visionary. Thanks for your kind words.
