A great series of images, Version 1 has the edge, and my foot in the water.

Fun! V1 brings out detail that is lost in V2. V3 lacks the cold clarity of colour.
Good crop!

Like the use of square format. Prefer V1 for same reasons described by mrswollybill above.

Aye, agree with Moira. Good stuff, right down to the peaked cap and the trouser legs rolled up ....

Hi Jeff,

V1 for me followed by V2, I'm not sure what was happening with V3 Wink.

There is still a bit a detail to be gained from V1 by selective exposure. If you have exposure adjustments in your processing programme when you select this option it may come up with three eye droppers somewhere in the window. After making a copy of your image select the bottom dropper and click on a point in the image which is white/off white and then with the middle dropper click on a dark area, don't worry if this blows out the image. Now reduce the opacity until the area you want to adjust is how you like it, now by applying a mask you can erase the alterations from the rest of the image and at different strengths in certain areas to get the desired effect. Another way is to use the shadows/highlights adjustment but this can sometimes leave certain images looking a little flat.

Jeff I have made these adjustments in the mod to help bring out this chaps face and arm, see what you think.

Take care

Hi Martin

thanks for the comments and the mod
I tend to use the exposure controls in ViewNX and then tinker around the edges in Picasa (and/or occasionally pixlr). I still can't quite get my head around layers and masks Sad .

I can see the difference, so must practice more. Many thanks
jeff

PS V3 was just using a B&W process in Picasa..admit it isn't really one thing or another. Often when you look back at what you did, you think `how did I see that'? GrinGrin

I was just puzzling over V3 having read Martins first comment but now see he meant V2 being the one with a problem - I like V3 best it relates to those days when colour was not available so readily

V1 gets my vote, a great image to start with - with the reflection on the water making it all the more interesting. Well taken and well presented in the other images as well. Elaine
