    i like these images a lot, especially 1. what nice light!
    for 2 all i can say perhaps take a step back to get more of the piano in foreground.

    Was the sky really 3 different colors or was this done in PP?

    yes it really was different colours although, not as strong as that, was washed out a bit . So I upped the saturation in the sky a bit, to bring it out a bit more perhaps too much? opinions? I quite liked the effect
    oh and re piano in foreground, good point. I was playing around with depth of field and playing withe lines of the piano but in hindsight that may have been better thanks.

    I like the 1st one a lot...very peaceful looking. The crop is just right. The sky's colors are a little off...but you said they were washed out to begin with.

    Is that chromatic aberration around the trees on the left or is it my eyes?

    IMO the shallow DOF is misplaced for this kind of an image.

    In fact, I think having the entire keyboard in focus would have been much more dramatic.

    I opened with the photo in ACR and confirmed it is underexposed (by 2.25 stops). I cropped out the distracting white thing in the top middle, and the OOF foreground camera left. Being only a 116 kB file, it wouldn't hold any other editing.

    All in all a good idea, but could use some other technical approaches and be made a much stronger image IMO, which makes me also wonder how you processed it to B&W.

    Could you elaborate?

    Hi thanks for replys sorry for my horrible slow reply! Kmh i agree, when i processed that photo a month or so ago I didn't understand editing as well, as i do now! I think I used the b&w effect in iphoto can't remember now. Would like to think i could do a better job these days! However I thought the shallow depth of field made the shot a bit different! meh i don't know! Each to there own :)
