A lazy evening stroll on Bournemouth beach. Used Channel Mixer to convert to b/w, then tweaked the colours to get the sepia effect.

Wow! This would look really good on canvas! Very 'Athena'
I like the deatils, also like it in B/W.
Well done!

Very nice, but no disrespect, it really does look like something "Shane" might have done!

Thanks everyone. Yep, you're right Ade, but if you have a look at the photo montage on the inside back cover of the "Dorset Jaguar" magazine, for which I did the design and artwork for about 5 years, you'll see something very similar. But Shane is undeniably the master.

Wasn't a criticism Chris, just a observation....
As for the "Dorset Jaguar" magazine, I'll have a look as I have a copy just lying around somewhere.....LOL
I'm sure you right mate.

I like the way you did the conversion. Lots of tones or gamut or whatever high-fallutin' word you use for lots of greys between the black and white!

I know what you mean about giving it a push toward another colour, straight black and white can often seem very bleak, but a little brown warms it right up!

This shot I liked a lot.
People, a pet, the sea- all is composed excellently.
The colors are soft and pleasant for the eye.
