    I was out testing whether and if so how my sister's Tamron 28-200mm lens would work on the new Canon... the results did not all make me happy, I still don't know how to adjust to the huge amount of light that this lens apparently wants to have ... and the camera did not seem to react adequately automatically... the photos were dull and the snow was grey ... I tweaked and then went for a conversion and kind of sepia-ish tint... Look for yourselves.

    I like the series Corinna, the tree in #3 is my favourite though.

    No snow here yet ... but no doubt that the day we get it I won't have the camera with me.

    Nice series.
    #1 & #5 really stand out for me.

    The treatment seems a little more pinkish than sepia, but I really like it against the white snow.

    Now I see their being pinkish, too, and now I no longer like them :grumpy:
    Care to see their (done up) originals, i.e. in colour? But done up... the original originals were really dull, I did not like those at all!

    cool series LaFoto.. shoot in the snow is tough, I really hated it when I was younger with my 35mm cams, as the brightness of the snow and contrast to darker subjects realll messes with the metering. keep trying, at least doing this is free!

    nice shots lafoto, i really like #3 and all the tires are fun too. they look pink to me too, but I imagine the snow photos are tough... i haven't even seen snow in a few years, so I love getting to see it all here on TPF! Thanks for sharing! :)

    In daylight I did see the pink hue, now, with the desklamp on, it does not seem as bad, but now that I know how wrong I went yesterday (with the desklamp as my light source) I definitely no longer like my conversions.

    So I thought I might show you three of these (the first three, of which the third is my favourite!) in colour (not "straight-from-the-camera", though ... better not):

    Nice series LaFhoto, I like number 1 and 3 the best. The first versions you posted are indeed a little on the pinkish side for my taste but I bet they would look great in straight B+W.

    Would you want to see a "straight b+w version" then, pursuer (there still are those that were the "foundation" for my funny pinkish tint... :roll: )???

    Excellent series Corinna. My fave is the first shot, and number 5 being second.

    Thats not necessary, just a suggestion, that is unless you feel like posting them. In which case I would me happy to see them, especially the third shot. I think it would look great in B+W. :D
