    I agree... however the B&W on the second one seems a little dark. I don't see a full white.

    Nice pictures, Jeff. The first one in B&W and in color are my favorite of the group. Your B&W are a little underexposed in my opinion but still nice. They do have really good texture to them which is a plus. The first one also has a nice composition. I like the way it almost looks like an explosion. It gives it a sense of excitement/action to the picture.

    Darn you, Harpper you are taking the words out me mouth! ;)

    I love the crazy the 'explosion' of leaves in the first. I prefer the B&W to the colour, but I would be neutral about that statement if the greens where even more saturated. I would try the 'diffuse glow' filter on the first in b&w to see what happens - i think the results would be cool in this shot.

    2nd was great, i agree lovely textures. both shots are super :thumbsup:

    I can't remember Jeff, did you say you had photoshop? :scratch:

    You won't hear me saying this very much, but (deep breath) I like the first shot better in color. I think I have better comprehension of the plant with the colors there. But the second one works better for me as a B&W, if as nothing else a cool abstract. Love it!! "diffuse glow filter", Mark? :scratch: Interesting. You crazy ps'er, you. :wink:
