The Stolen Child has one of the most beautifully haunting rhythms - it moves something in me.
This is a wonderful photo that reminds me of childhood. We had a tapestry on the wall of our bedroom with little elves, fairies, toadstools and mushrooms. I always wanted to turn tiny and hide away in that magical place.
Great composition and I love the b&w - it is more like a memory that way. Thanks!

Outstanding B/W shot. Reminds us of the olden times. The ambience and the flavour of your setting is just majestic and the portrayal is WOW.....to say the least. Wilderness is such a wild thing to breathe-in. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Wonderful in b/w. You have given the feeling of moving through the grass and coming upon these. The composition, detail and your notes are great.

The conversion to B&W was an excellent idea for this shot. Had it been in color I don't think it would look near as dramatic as this version. Nice tonal range and detail. Since I don't see the Leprechaun here at the moment. I'll wait for the rainbow shot with the Pot O' Gold to meet him.....Must be my Irish heritage.............

Bonne idée que d'avoir fait ce cliché en noir et blanc.

I like that last quote in your notes, Bob. We old poeple need to ponder over it :-).
This is a lovely capture of these tall and well-shaped mushrooms.
I think you have done well in choosing the B&W medium for this picture.
Thanks and take care.

Oh I like this one Bob! I've been having to discipline myself lately to look past the spanning grandeur that is the landscape composition and also take the time to seek out the smaller pieces of paradise that lay around one's feet. Beautifully composed Bob with a wonderful blend of contrast and sharpening combined with an expertly crafted depth of field.

your shots would not be the same without your notes. I was a little busy with the final exams of my students, but now the worst is passed. Great idea the B/W. My wishes for your health.

Even if I am not a very old person I remember the times where only black-whit photo could be taken (especially in Central Europe where the cost of colour pictures was very expensive). And this picture remind me these times ;)
And even if it is "only" BW, I like it a lot. Moreover thank to this it is very artistic picture. I like contrast, details and sharpness too.
Many thanks for showing this beuty picture!

It is a nice shot, with a nice B&W contrast managed. I never dared to post a b&W fungui shot, it is nice to see yours.
Thanks and regards, Felipe.
