Thanks Laura, wow Maybe I should get out in the evening more. It sure is easier than getting up early enough to catch the nice light.

Ramona, Ken, Jim, Linda, and Laura,
thankyou all so much. For no longer than I've been into photography I'm really suprised by all this.
Thanks again.

Terrill, thanks for your wonderful comment. Really like your gallery as well. A question for you. When you convert to black and white, do you use the feature in the Pentax *ist Ds or the editing program? I'd be curious to know as I am starting to like B&W more and more. Thanks.
Dan

Dan, thanks for the compliment!

I actually prefer to convert color images to B&W in PaintShop 5. Then, if necessary I refine with PaintShop 9. I've been very pleased with the range of BW tones in PaintShop; less so with it's work in color. Although, the problem could be with me :)

Wow Donna you really went back into the archives. I had been doing photography for almost two years at this point. I got my first point and shooter in Oct. of 2003. Untill then it was always interesting to see how many birthdays and Christmasses would be on a roll of film.
thanks for taking the time to look and comment.
