    Found all these things out in the middle of nowhere. Well kinda. A couple of the pics came from a small ghost town that has been relocated. Silver City Ghost Town. It's about 5 minutes away from a place I've been going for years and I never knew it was there :blulsh2:

    I'm not too sure about the composition on any of them? Everything here is old. But it was all in a modern surrounding with cars, buildings, etc. And every shot either had tons of junk piled around it, or it was behind a fence :x So I did my best, but I'm not too sure about some of the crops and angles? Just tried to work with what I had.

    Hey Woodsac,

    Is that bw from camera, or is it a P/S conversion?

    Wow, thanks everyone! I never thought that anyone else would want to see my photos?

    These were all shot in color (last weekend) and converted with PS CS2. I make changes to the color photo first, hue/saturation, sharpness (unsharp mask) and brightness/contrast. Then, I hit the channel mixer, then the shadow/highlight, and lastly the brightness/contrast. Except I usually wind up making several changes before I'm happy :D

    Excellent series Woodsac! I think that you did quite well considering the obstacles you mentioned. I really like these but I am especially taken with the typewriter like my fellow Canuck. I really like the B & W but I think the first and third photos would also really look nice in sepia. Keep 'em coming.
