    oh, and here's the original if some of you want to play with it. I just fixed the levels so it looks acceptable:

    hey alex, i really like this shot - beautiful. i only wish there was a little bit more foreground. I love your original and conversions, but i thought i would play with it for a minute and this is what I came up with...

    I like the first one! It looks grainy and textural and warm and...you know...just has some more feeling to it. The second one is beautiful and delicate, but there is a sadness kinda, in the first one that I like. :blushing:

    I kinda dig the first one, it's got sort of a sepia tone happening there. Nicely done.

    Looks like you had some tough conditions to work with? I like your first edit the best, but I also think it needs the extra fg. This is one of those times that a soft image can work better than a sharp one. But, that's just my opinion ;)

    I like JTH's edit. So, I tried a couple different techniques just to give you more ideas. I tried to follow your basic edits. The first one is color, but with a softer feel and darker colors. The second is a little sharper, but with the added tint.

    I like the first one, the toning and the sepia work well. Woodsac's second conversion is also really old and nice looking

    um, i don't think so, i'm not sure what gimp is? I used the gradient tool to darken the upper half and then converted to B&W, and adjusted brightness and contrast, cropped and resized, added borders and ran through neat image. ;)

    Gimp is an other image processing software...
    The thing is that i don't know how to make frames and borders with it...

    And thanks for the edit! If some day i understand how any software works, i'll maybe be able to reproduce it :thumbup:
