Was out on a wine tour yesterday and we took a detour to see the Decew Falls in St. Catherine here in Ontario, Canada. Didn't have much light left so had to take a few shots then to hike back and use a rope to get back out of the gorge (same rope to go down) and didn't have enough light to take the long route out.

The writing on the rocks kinda ruins the purity of the third one. Maybe photoshopping it out might work.

especially with the contrast upped to the point that the shadows and highlights are maxed out. Could look very classy, almost Ansel Adams-ish. Pulling the B&W channel from the lab color mode in photoshop would be great for this.

Tried it, still saying hmmmm, still missing something, B&W is something I don't normally do... comments definetly appreciated here!

do you use for a pic like that? ISO, exposure, etc.

The last one, ISO 100, 40mm, F8, 13 seconds, F8, +1 exposure compensation.
For low light, I always use ISO 100 to minimize the noise as much as possible. Of course tripod required.

are you just converting to greyscale in photoshop? I find that copying the b&w channel after converting to Lab color mode results in way cleaner images.

This one I adjusted the levels for each of the colours (RGB), converted to BW and then tweaked it further.
I think there is no tried-and-true way of B&W conversion, really depends on the subject.

Had a Sherpa which was good enough until I walked into that evil place called "Henry's" :)
