    For the first time, I attended a Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk this year. The day was grey and dreary, threatening rain, and the sky was white. I brought only my E-M5 and 17/1.8 lens. I wasn't all that thrilled with my shots that day, and I processed them more heavily due to the dreary atmosphere. Well I entered one and forgot all about it. And yesterday when I checked Facebook, my local photography club had posted a message that my entry won for the REO Town walk in Lansing, Michigan! What a great surprise! Woo hoo, just had to toot my own horn a bit. :biggrin:

    Thanks everybody! JohnS., oh, when I'm dissatisfied with my photography, I usually just take a break, and when I come back with fresh eyes, I feel much better. It was like that when I played guitar. Periodically I'd become "stuck" and nothing would sound right to my ears. After a short break, I'd often play better than ever. But thanks for the compliment. I see so many great photos on these forums, and I learn something almost every day. It also helps remind me that photography is a process. :smile:

    Congrats, you took a really compelling photo! FWIW, grey days and wide angle lenses make great b&w photos. And it certainly does not look un-natural (as in who slipped the acid in my coffee). A fine photograph.

    For a guitarist (me), Lansing is a great place, home of Elderly Instruments. For anyone who finds camera gear expensive, I was going to say "google Elderly Loar F5," but I guess they sold the two mandolins. $225k +. Although here's where I think one went:

    In deserving hands.
