To my eye, this is one of your best in your Single Photos folder. I really like the mood it evokes, the variety of texture in the trees, and especially the glow of the main subject--the bridge. Well composed. The negative space at the top left initially had me wondering how you could have done it differently as it seemed to detract...but as I look, now I'm not so sure if it does detract at all as the boat on that side of the frame helps with the balance. Overall, very well done. And now I have to ask you: How do you do your B&W conversions? And was this medium format?

Daniel: I'm sorry but I just noticed you post. Thanks so much for your kind comments. I was using Lightroom 3 I believe for this shot although some of the other shots in my B/W folder could have been done with Elements 8 or Silver Efex Pro 2. This was shot with a Canon Powershot S230 Point and Shoot. All of the B/W shots in that folder were shot with one of a few P&S's I had. My medium format film shots are in another folder. The black sky was created by adjusting the blue color after conversion. You have to do this gingerly or you start to get noise as I have a little in this shot. The glowing bridge was not touched. It just showed up that way from the original shot. It's located in NYC Central Park and I think one of the park's prettiest bridges. Alan.

Here's the color original.
Thanks for the details, Alan! Nice job with a P&S. It is indeed the photographer more than the gear! Even so, lately I have been wondering if I should move to the new Nikon D800 when it comes out...or go the other way and travel light with something like the Canon S100 P&S--the technology going either direction is getting pretty impressive. For now, though, before I change anything I still have a big chunk of learning left with my Nikon D90.
