Except for #2, these photos have been posted before in color. I thought they might work in B&W. Comments and suggestions are most welcome. Thanks for viewing, John

Nice work on all of these, John. Numbers two and four are my favorites.

John, these are quite nice. The sky in the second one is a bit funky but all of them have nice tonalities.

These are all nice in black and white, John. I particularly like the fishing boat and the boathouse. I wonder what will become of the abandoned boat.

I think they are all very well done. My particular favorite is the tree. It's extraordinary.

As presented I like number 4 the best.

But do sky replacement for number 2 - with a not over burnt sky of your own - and that would be the winner. That nearly pure white is distracting and pulls you eye to it and away from the building.

Thank you very much, Bob. I realized sky looks weird. Trying to pull some contrast out of an almost white sky. I've envied the sky work you've done and will have to learn that or to do sky replacement. Always appreciate your comments.

Thank you very much, Marg. I drove by where the abandoned boat was and didn't notice it, but wasn't looking for it either. Maybe its completely overgrown with wild grape or it's been turned into fire wood. I'll have to check in the spring.
