A walk around these magnificent little valleys gives us a peek of the lives of farmers long past. Miles from any main road and without modern day amenities, it is of little wonder that the young people people of today cannot renovate this old farm building. For me, well, I see the lines, shapes, shades and feel the nostalgia....

Herb a great treatment i chose B/w with my father help as he is the one with the experience. you will also see one i did of just the waves. i love the warm tones in this steve

Dave and Steve. I have walked past this old farm a few times and the later, also took a photo in colour but it lacked something of feeling. So, transforming this to mono, I think brings out the wild area and age of the building more. Yes, I agree also with the warmer tones. When I did my own B&W printing, I always liked 'Ilford' paper as that was slightly warm too. Cheers to you both, Herb

Hello Herb, Your latest uploads are just simply wonderful.

This is a real tear jerker, I love it.

It captures all the memories.

Your choice of words is exact its full of nostalgia.

I hope it stands for ever.

Grey Eagle, your fine words here Honour me!, it is my continual aim, not only to portray such images accurately but also with some expression of art. If I can, I always try to add something about the subject and my thoughts as well. Of course, I am very happy that all this has come across here to you. Regards, Herb

If you'd told us this was a one hundred and fifty year old photo I'd have believed you Herb. Marvellous capture and conversion. Marvellous.

Best regards, Tom

Nice shot, Herb, monochrome is a very good idea.

Herb Riddle on November 10, 2009

Tom and Ulrich, you both have monochromes on your galleries and so I know you both like this kind of work yourself. I am sure, that like me, you sometimes ask yourself, should I convert this? Well with comments like yours, to this picture, I am certainly glad that I went to the trouble here and I after viewing both this and the coloured original, like the feeling of age much better with this. Thanks again for your nice comments and visits, Herb

Hi Herb, this is a fantastic composition in grey. I love the archaic sphere. Did you "unsaturate" it in the Oly 410 itself or in an photo-editor? Regards Wolle

Very nice mono Herb, congratulation. Greetings, Pali.

Herb Riddle on November 11, 2009

panoramawolle, thanks for liking this. I used my favourite editing S/Ware -Paint Shop Pro, although as you know, I could have taken it in mono via my Olympus, but I find the results just as good doing it as post-treatment.

Pali always happy to see you here, glad you like this too.

Cheers to you both, Herb

Ray welcome to my gallery. You Honour Me! by your great compliment. I am always very happy indeed when newcomers enjoy my work here and I must say it gives me great encouragement to go and take more such photographs.

If you look up from this comment, to the right, underneath 'Photo Details' you will see: 'Extra Information', click that, and you will see exactly what all photographs were made with. You will notice my photo's here are mostly with my Olympus E410 or my small Canon Ixus 500. If there is no info there it has usually been scanned or taken from another file format. Hope this is of use. Cheers, Herb
