    At the Ronald Reagan Library over the weekend and took some random snaps. I've also recently decided to stick to a black and white theme for all my PP as of late so here it goes.

    This really is an excellent set. I was trying to choose favorites and finally gave up - I like them all. :2thumbs:

    Nice set! Like the warmtone b&w. With all the good glass used, it seems interesting that my favorite shot is the first, from the crappy bodycap lens!

    :)

    Thank you Caimi,

    I start in LR4 and then convert to b/w with the Topaz Labs plugin.

    What's interesting to me is that the older subject in these images has a vaguely Reagan-esque look about him. Nice work on the monochrome treatment.

    Nice set of images. As a fellow G5 owner, it's nice to see what other people are doing with this great image-making tool.

    Like mh2000, I favor the BCL-15 shot. It's nice to see selective focus from an f/8 lens on a sub-FF sensor. I'm having a hard time choosing between the 20-1.7 and the BCL-15 for street shooting (I have both), though I can say that in the electronic shutter mode the BCL-15 is blindingly fast, and dead silent.

    Well done, thanks for sharing.
