    Please Note: It is possible that Griswold may know nothing whatsoever about horology. It's even possible that he has never even owned a watch. It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    Cheers! Yes, I agree that the B&W version looks good. Iím sometimes torn between posting colour and monochrome images as I tend to want to give the impression of what I saw through the viewfinder at the time.

    I like the colour vicar. So much black and white in the world already.

    Portraits work well in bw, but when you have landscapes with a minimal pallette and clear hues like the one above then I think most of the work is done for you anyway.
    Good luck everybody. Have a good one.

    Iím old school I started with a Zenith B and bw film. Learning how to develop at home. I then progressed through various cameras till I ended up with Canon F1ís Old & New.

    I now have digital phone cameras and a Nikon D7000
    Iím very uneasy with digital because it can be manipulated so much that the photo is not the one that was seen through the viewfinder or by the eyes.

    A very similar story here! Sadly my home darkroom had to go when the children came along, but I do still have a Durst colour enlarger and various other developing and printing paraphernalia squirrelled away in a loft in the UK. After years of borrowing SLRs from family members my first 'proper' camera was a Pentax ME Super before I moved into miniature and subminiature cameras in an ironically big way.

    It's one of the reasons that I try to restrict post-processing to what I could achieve using darkroom techniques, generally limited to cropping and exposure adjustment. I don't shoot in RAW or have any sophisticated digital photo manipulation tools like Photoshop or Lightroom which I'd struggle to find the time to learn how to use anyway.

    The big advantage for me with digital is the ability to experiment with camera settings to my heart's content without wasting film when it doesn't work out

    Here here, a man after my own heart. I still have my canon cameras and lenses. My Nikon D7000 I rarely use. I donít have any photo editing software other than iPhoto. I changed the image to bw just using my iPhone

    I keep yearning to put film in the cameras, but then remember you canít see what you have until itís developed and there might be 24 shots out of 36 that you would be HaPpY with. Thatís where digital wins for me.

Also the vehicle straddling the horizon works really well as a focal point. Nice!

    PS If you haven't thought of it yet, try to sell it through Alamy or suchlike.
    PPS reading that you do not shoot RAW it may be a bit of a challenge.

    You do much better than me. For me, there is an inverse relation between the trouble to get the picture and the percentage that are good. But, the percentages aren't great. Digital, 5%. 35mm, 10%. MF, 25%. LF (4x5), 40%. (Guesses, of course.)

    Best wishes,
    Bob

    Much appreciated! I donít think that I could sell any of my images without diminishing the personal pleasure so Iíll stick with what I enjoy unless needs must. M
