Visted up north last weekend and while the weather was severe clear, I managed to manipulate a couple shots into acceptable B&Ws

Both with 1DMkIII + 70-200mm f/2.8L IS at around 1/750 f/5.6 ISO 100
Conversions in LR + CS4

Comments always welcome...

Appreciate it...

It's amazing what comes out when you start to tweak a little bit.

I really like those, Jay. The gradations from black to white with all the grey in between -- it works for me.

Thank you all very much. I have printed them but haven't had the time to matte and frame them yet. :(

I would tend to agree and eventually they'll end up there.

You're welcome to get them for your own wall if you'd like. ;)
