    That first one is very cool. I didn't know I was looking at bubbles at first glance. To the left it looked like water on a deck with sealant.
    I'm guessing that's a clothsline or a rope going through the water.

    Very interesting picture.

    The bubbles on the first one almost looks like the texture of snake's skin! Pretty cool. :D

    Great shots. I too like the tones. Is this a patented conversion method? That if people know you have to kill them?

    Thanks everyone :) The conversion technique just sort of came to me today....but yes I would have to kill if I told :lol: Basically I just added a channel mixer layer, checked grayscale, and then made adjustments to my suiting...it's one of those things that really depends on the picture. The constant is key to getting the blacks, and then the rest is trial and error :)

    The first shot is actually water that was rushing out of the drain outside creating bubbles, and someone left the garden hose laying out, and it caught my eye :)
