    I remember you. Good to see you post. Fine shots of a fine building. You use photoshop? These look like they could use a little distortion correction. There's plenty of room on the sides to bring them up.

    Oh, good to see Belfast Castle. I know I've been there once, but don't remember when, nor do I remember overly much of it. I hope I'll get to see it in August.

    When I do wide-angle photos, also I usually get a lot of distortion, any my ancient Photoshop does not offer me any means to correct the sides. So - like in the old days - I just have to live with it. Would your PS help you straighten the sides, Chris?

    As to the two versions, I think I like the colour one because of the greens (;) :mrgreen: ). And I like the castle as much. Come to think of it, I might have a photo of those spiralled stairs somewhere ... or was it my sister who had such photo? :scratch: ... sorry. No longer remember.

    Nice shots. I prefer the black and white, but that's just my bias.

    I prefer the colour. It has a richness that b/w misses.

    Thanks for the comments fox paw and leighthal.
    I also preffer the colour one but forevery colour shot I take,I also create a B&W vervion for comparison. Sometimes you just get lucky and get a smashing B&W while the colour version is not so good,and vise versa. lol Thanks again

    That's a cool strategy, Chris!
    But then I am just converting my holiday pics into jpegs as we speak (well, my computer does that for me :D), and there's more than 1000 pics ... I'd be working on them until Christmas if I wanted to create a "test-BW" from each and every one of them :shock: --- but with some I will try! I knew I would try that even when I took the photo.
