Wandering around my local park the other day, I found this single leaf. I didn't actually think about this challenge when I was shooting.

This is a combination of tweaking saturation values with lightness values...not a true b+w conversion.

I'll be interested in hearing comments.

Mark, another fantastic finish! Not as high as I figured -- or as it deserves tho. This is so incredibly beautiful! As razor sharp as anything I've ever seen!

The Silver on Silver works very well. I like the composition. But curious if this was taken beyond the Basic Editing format. I'll give the benefit of the doubt, 8.

I think this turned out really sharp...is this IR?

One of the few artfully done shots. I like the diagonal lines of the stem and the minimalism of the single leaf. It may not do well because it seems COLOR is what everybody wants. I like the silvery tones of it. Well, after plodding through the mundane and DNMC of so many of them, bumping up to 8.

Wow!This is stunning! What an amazing accomplishment to get that kind of contrast with grays and blacks! I'm in awe at how sharp and clean this is. Bokeh at its finest!!! 10
