    Awesome shots!

    Congrats to all three for some terrific shots! Am I the only one who finds a certain joyful irony that two of the winning shots in a "Color Effects" contest were processed in B&W? I really love B&W shots and I'm glad to see the recognition they deserve. Way to go! :2thumbs:

    Great photos everyone!

    Now that's some off-topic spam. I commend your effort to conceal your intentions by resurrecting an old post as opposed to creating a new one, though. I'm not sure how effective this approach will be for you, but it's at least original.
