    Three today from out and about. I stumbled upon the first & second subjects while visiting a graveyard. I spotted the third when I was driving by a derelict building.

    #1 Secret Door

    Daniel Diaz B&W Conversion/Action in Photoshop with a subtle tint.

    #2 Lost Rose
    [​IMG]
    B&W conversion in Camera RAW and slight tint added in Photoshop.

    #3 Spare Tyre
    [​IMG]
    Cropped and a Retro Action applied in Photoshop.

    C&C would be cool - good or bad.

    Thanks, iceman. I'm going through a B&W faze - hopefully I won't grow out of it. ;)
    As for what's behind that door.... probably nothing. But their's always a 'but' ain't there..?

    Do u know about black and white conversions using the channel mixer? i helps keep the tonal range instead of losing it when you convert to black and white.

    I just got Photoshop CS3 at Christmas. I was using Elemnts 5 before that. The channel mixer isn't really something that I've used a lot or know an awful lot about. I tend to use B&W adjustment layers in CS3 or an Action.
    You've got me interested in the channel mixer now so I shall delve further.
    Thanks.

    #1 and #3 for me out of the first 3, esp the coloring in 3:thumbsup:

    the black triangle in #2 seems a little overpowering to me.

    I'm going to have to get out further than my local fields I think.

    Cheers,

    Things I would never have took notice of before I started photography now call out to me. There are a lot of photographic opportunities. I would be lost without pp though.

    The black triangle is part of a grave and I couldn't decide whether it was ok or not.
