Old rope and boats

    Old rope on the quayside in Bantry Harbour, Co. Cork. I love the different textures in this image, and I knew I'd be happy with it in b/w!

      This one is a marvelous shot. Such a delightful composition. Congratulations! If that is not a secret :-) , what kind of B&W post-processing (if any) should I do in my photographs to get such an impressive contrast effect?

      Thank you! I converted it to b/w in Bibblepro, but afterwards used the dodge and burn tools in the GIMP to increase the contrast.

      This type of photo is a favourite of mine!

      Hi Donnacha, great job done on this one! Do you take all your shots in RAW format?

      Tim - yes I do. it's not always worth it and backing up stuff is a pain but it's better to have that extra 1 stop of exposure either way than not I feel.

      If I'm in a situation where I know I'll be shooting *lots* I'll revert to jpeg though. I did that on St. Patrick's Day. Otherwise I'd run out of space while shooting!

      Hi Donncha, thanks for sharing the secrets :-) ! I hear a lot about GIMP, so now I think it's time for me to have a look at it!
