Excellence!

Robert, I've been watching your work for a long time.

I have one thing to say. Do more B&W!

Great detail on this one Robert.

Who would have thought corn as art.

At first I thought you might have used a infrared filter, but after seeing your steps on B&W conversion, it makes sense. I'm guessing you used the green channel?

Paul,

Sometimes it takes me a while, but I am starting to think that B&W has some merit. I have stuck with color for a long time, perhaps due to my growing up with a B&W TV.

Thanks for your kind words.

Green would be right, Jane. Lots of green.

Thank you, Daniel. I recently ran across this Ansel Adams quote, "Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions." More than anything else, photography causes us to look at the world about us differently than ever before. Non-photographers notice the beauty in a sunset, but may not see the beauty of patterns in an ear of corn, or they may not notice the "flowers" in a concrete curb. Photography causes us to look more intently at the world around us. Beauty is all around us if we simply look for it "with perceptive eyes."

That's the hard part; the easy part is taking the photo.

Best regards,
Robert

Gorgeous! Wonderful job controlling the light and exposure to get such a high key subject with all the detail and contrast. The jet black background makes it all the more powerful. Bravo!

Thanks Tom and Christian. I am out in the boonies without internet service, but am replying on my Treo. It is very kind of you both to comment. What is the scoop regarding WA 217?
