    Wow. I guess you can apply the word "vivid" to black and white:).

    I just realized that I did not comment on this one of yours, pawzitiv - I really think it's super! Love the tones, the wildness of the whole scene and its intensity. That one big sunflower looks as though it's growing as you photographed - and that if you weren't careful it might reach out and engulf you! Beautiful and kind of scifi.

    And wow from me too. Great composition, interesting sky and plenty of tonal range - what's not to like?

    Thank you all .. hearing that this image appeals makes it all worthwhile.

    Incidentally, this image prints up beautifully at "13x19" on Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk on an Epson R2400. Micro 4/3's is a serious format; no need to ever apologize to the APS-C or FF crowd

    One more WOW from me. Great photograph, well seen, captured, and processed. What else could a B&W lover ever want?
