Thanks ggbutcher ! - After a long absence I have rediscovered why I like Black and white - some pictures have much more impact in B&W. I now shoot with pictures with this in mind.

Very nice picture Ronstar..

I am coming back to B&W after about 40 years - of course back in those days you actually had to shoot in B&W film. Kodak Plus-x and Tri-X come to mind. Now it's all digital and "post" work.

Thanks Go-NoGo. I had a graduated ND filter on that added some craziness to the sky.

Here's one I took last month in Erice, a mountain top town in Sicily overlooking the city of Trapani and other places below.

It was stitched together in Lightroom from about a dozen RAW files, resulting in a 550 MB DNG file.

This one is a much detail-reduced JPG for the purpose of posting online.

The tetons shot is stunning. What lens and setting did you use for that?

Thanks. Nikon Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Settings ISO64 24 mm f11 1/160sec with a Lee graduated neutral density filter (.6 I think). Edited in Silver Efex Pro.

Very nice! I'm going to try a stitch that big one of these days. Didn't know if Lightroom could merge that many individual photos. I think I did this one in 7.

I haven't tried a multi row pano.

I shoot handheld so that might be pushing it.

DW and I went out in the kayak this morning. Saw an eagle raid a heron's nest and get chased off. But not before snatching a chick. I did not tell DW that the raid was successful. I was a little too far away to catch a good shot. I was pleased with the bee photo, though.

Slurry bomber hitting the 416 fire near Durango, CO. 6/7/18
Using an old legacy glass vivitar 70-210 telephoto on my A7R3. The smoke and zoom make this less than sharp, but it was as close as I could get safely.
