    Winter in Holland is not really kicking in and all we get is gray, wet, moody weather. Looks more like autumn then winter :(.

    A little impression:

    Thanks for your comments :).
    I know it looks a bit depressive but i was trying to capture the mood of the weather (which was a little depressive as well).

    Your method of partial desaturation helps a lot to underline the general mood, mostly so in Photo 6 (7, too, though not quite as strongly) - Photo 6 and its subject (broken off and fallen over trees) and the POV very much speak of "down", "broken", "dark"...

    But I also quite like Photo 5 - same process, very interesting! - though that one conveys different feelings. The colour cast fascinates me there as well. Very much so. Would you like to describe what you did?

    1 and 5 are really nice and moody. I watched the news last night, terrible weather all across Europe just like here in Vancouver couple of weeks ago.

    Thanks again everyone :).
    It's pretty easy:
    -I underexposed all pictures and metered for the highlights which already mutes the colors a bit.
    -I did a high contrast B&W conversion.
    -I added the B&W as a separate layer to the original and set opacity to 50%.

    Yup, i got stuck in a storm last thursday (all public transportation was cancelled for the night) and it took me 6 hours to get home from work :(.
