Heading In

I probably should have lightened or altered things but this is instead a straight b/w conversion.

I like it as it is, Mary, dramatic...Thanks for more Tom...smile
Mary MacADNski: It is much more dramatic. Thanks.
this is sooo good Mary... i'm glad that you didn't change a thing...
the cows are getting their sides warmed up in the morning sun....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: This is the opposite end of the day. They are going home for the night.

Nice counterpoint to the Tom Waits clip, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Tom and black and white photography could accentuate both with any imagination at all.

One of the more conventionally musical Waits numbers.

Confession...Tom Waits is one of my favourite American singer/songwriters.
Mary MacADNski: I like him very much and have his entire collection. I so do like the youtube feature that is available this way. I started blogging to share music but that became impossible with copyright issues. YouTube has solved that problem for me.

This is good, I am glad you left the way it was. LOVE the dark mood here. Perfect.
Mary MacADNski: I am so glad to come back after work able to comment. Something happened with yours and I sent it 3 times but it was still not responding. This shot has lots of potential with so much that can be done.
Sometimes you just have to leave good-enough alone, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: I was speeding as usual and had no time for more.

Staccato (if you can use that word for a picture), Mary
Mary MacADNski: I know the term for music surely.

It works well
Mary MacADNski: I may balance it out at some point.
Looks fine as it is Mary. It is too easy to over improve and actually ruin the picture...I should know I have done it loads of times
Mary MacADNski: I think balancing it out would make a good shot too.
I like it just like this Mary. Those clouds look awesome. Also, I am a fan of Tom Waits. I like his song - we're all mad here.
Mary MacADNski: I am surprised there are so many Tom fans. Thank goodness you are mad but your country is madder. I still can't stop thinking about all the politicians involved in Brexit quitting, changing their minds, and all the immediate kerfuffle but the people did not demand or were not allowed to change their minds too.

I think it's fine just as it is. I like the view with the cows with their backsides highly by the sun.
Mary MacADNski: That is what I was photographing. The coming home when the sun was going down. The light was lovely but I did not balance the light at all.
With that lighting it is good as it is, especially in B.& W., but if I were to present this at my club I would crop about two thirds of the bottom off as all that dark area overpowers the beautiful top section.
Mary MacADNski: Exactly! There is so much more that could be done with this photo. I find it unbalanced but interesting.

Ah, this is great. Don't lighten. Love the point of view, cows going home. Likey.
Mary MacADNski: Glad to hear it is liked this way and I love a likey.
Milking time smile Great Tom Waits song - the funniest thing he did in the stage act I saw was a take-off of Tony Bennett smile
Mary MacADNski: Funny that I have just been playing Tony Bennett.
