Well, I can see we're browsing member galleries at the same time! I have to say you have a very impressive gallery. I can see you've mastered the camera and the PS darkroom! Great job on all--this one is just so cool. I hope it wins something! (Before I took my chocolate picture I didn't know what high-key pics were--now that I do I can say, "Good one!")

Trumpeter Swan, Rouge Beach, Toronto, Ontario. Kodak ISO100 print film. Wanted to try a white subject on a white background and push the levels. Colour print scanned in B&W, Photoshop was used to remove the original background, adjust the levels, and reconstruct the shadow.
