    Here is a shot from today of a maple syrup tap, rendered in duotone.

    How does it look? I upped the contrast just a little.

    Oh, that is how it is done? No wonder, maple syrup is expensive. It looks like a long process!
    I like the DOF here and the inclusion of some "context" (i.e. more wood) in the well blurred-out background.
    Conversion also worked, you could even up contrasts a tad more, I guess. Though :scratch: ... when looking at the ground underneath that little collection-"house" ... not very much more, it is already quite bright.

    I have a local contrast plugin for GIMP, that might work well. Or I've heard of people using an unsharp mask to contrast things up a little. I'll play with this pic a little more today.

    It really brought out the texture in the tree bark
