I'm getting more comfortable thinking about which photos should be converted to B and W, and I'm much more liable to try it now. Some work, some don't, These are from Tuesday's walk where I found the micro-landscapes.
This one I'm a bit disappointed in the photo. It does not show what my eyes saw for a few minutes. The light was just right, shimmering across the grain, almost silvery in places. It's like there was a faint duplicate of the grain ridges floating above the wood. I even tried dropping it into Photomatix to see if I could get that, and I didn't. I'm not sure I like what I got, but people that are more used to looking at B and W can say what they think, as can the rest of you. Maybe if I sprang for the Silver Efex package...
