Greg, I love playing around with HDR photography and I try to get the images to look  "photo-realistic" and not "hyper-realistic" I also try to go to Black and white via first doing HDR.<br />My confusion is to understand the relation between HDR and the zone system.  In HDR, by extending the tonal ...

Greg, just to show you I am busy :) Image early this morning with dew. Combination of Greg (channels on colour image)  and and Nik Silver Efex Pro, just to get little bit more punch in image. When I do the B&W conversion of the image in CM, it takes a lot longer and in this particular image just...

Greg, this week is very well presented, I cannot find anything to add or expand on. Great thing is that I'm going to delve into my archives and would surely get better results this time around.<br />Some aspect I've been thinking and playing around with, is to do a similar edit as yours, l...

Greg, do you use programs like Nik Silver Efex Pro or Topaz B&W Effects? I presume it depends on the specific image.  With your workflow, do you sometimes edit the colour image to a certain degree before changing it to B&W. Perhaps I'm running ahead now.

Thanks for week 3. I think it is a very good framework for a subject that is much wider/fuller. Its like this to me: when I know very little about trees and rivers, then a tree is just a tree and a river just a river. Once I start learning more, then a tree is not just a tree, it is a TREE and a riv...

Greg, I cannot add any contend to this week. It is great. One suggestion: Is it possible to mention soures where one can read up more about  spesific items; I know it is impossible to write a comprehensive review of everything, it will be too much for a course like this.<br />I really want to give y...

Greg, a few thoughts:<br />1. I realize that I lack the vocabulary to describe what I see in some ways.<br />2. How do you scan your images (with your eyes)? Do you have a spcific method or routine, like going through the points on your list or is it just random?<br />3. The Zone system. I'm le...
