    Hey guys... My first post here on the forums...

    I thought I would start off with a b/w conversion with selective coloring... The shot was taken in Williamsburg, VA, USA during this past weekend while waiting on the July 4th fireworks...

    C&C is always welcome as I'm still trying to learn everything I can...

    Enjoy!!!

    Tim

    Since your photos are "OK to edit," I took a few seconds to bump the contrast in GIMP since I am a proponent of high contrast black an white in most situation.s If you were to do this, I would only do the black and white layer and also avoid touching the sky, since it gets washed out pretty quickly.

    Edit: Somehow this got all messed up, but I think you know what I meant.

    Just doing what elemental suggested. It does look better IMO.

    Great shot, and yes the one with adjusted contrast looks a lot better.

    Yeah, that's what i was trying to do but it turned into a horrible mess of naming and editing and I gave up.
