    After reading the Black & White tutorials in this months Practical Photography magazine I decided to have a go myself on one of my own photographs in Elements 5.
    Being a new user to Elements I find some of these guides excellent.

    First I converted the image to grayscale
    Then used levels to add some punch
    Gave my image a tone using the colorize feature in the hue/saturation palette
    And finally, hand coloured the sky and posts by building colour layers.

    If i remember "the start" image from a thread you posted before, to be honest I don't think i was too impressed as it seemed liek a normal image. But then as you say, this image has some "punch" which just made me think it was brilliant as soon as I opened the thread. Well done, might have a try at this soon with some images of my own.

    Cheers, scharf. The stuff that you can do to your images is pretty cool to say the least.
