Who doesn't? It's like shooting B&W then dedicating it to Ansel Adams! Good luck! Great shot though, Wolfgang. The color in the eyes and nose are almost surreal. #44421

Thank you too, Gary. I was without any internet connection for more than a week now, been to the Alps. Tried some Minish-style panoramas to find out I had better let you do them!!
Weather was great, lots of sunshine, I went trekking up some mountains nearly every day - quite a workout, but lots of photos. #146258
