I may post some shots later of some of the details in this one, as there's a lot going on, but I wanted to put this one up to show the mass of roots. Again, avoided using the channel mixer because I couldn't find a balance I liked.

wow. now those are roots. I might be tempted to crop a bit the top, to get rid of the sky patches. click

Like this picture, lots of depth and detail to it. I've never really got on with channel mixer either. Look forward to seeing some detail close up's.

Great shot, very difficult to take roots, I've tried it and know. This is a beauty.

Superb love how you've captured those organic forms and highlighted them with the levels.

Wonderful subject - wouldn't mind a bit more contrast but I'm a contrast freak. I've no idea what channel mixer is.

Thanks everyone. I've been eperimenting with different ways of producing B&W from colour photos, and this is my most succesful attempt so far. Played with contrast, but it started to lose some of the details that I love about this, so I kept it this way. But thanks for the input.

Love all the textures in this, great compo, not sure how you have progressed since this but IMO the levels are the best way to get a good contrasty b&w result.
Takes a while to play with all the tweeks until you are happy.

Thank you. I found that the channel mixer wasn't working out for me, so I made up a layer out of each channel, and then uncovered various parts of each layer until I had what I was looking for
