Old Favorite B&W

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 22 November 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Today is my 75th birthday.

DarkElf from Perth picked up on the fact that there was a car, which seemed out of place, in yesterday's photograph. I went back and took it out with PS CS5's Content Aware Fill. Then I took it out of this photograph as well.

Nikon D700 F/10.0 ISO 800 56 mm (35mm equiv.)

Larry Elkins from Bisbee, United States

Happy birthday. And remember, NEVER TRUST ANYONE OVER THIRTY.

If I had never seen your colors I would say that this picture is very successful. But I know your color pictures and I prefer them.

Works great in B&W too. Wow, Jack - A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I would sing, but you wouldn't want to hear that! I wish many more years of happy shooting for you. You are an inspiration to a "youngster" like me. (Not that I'm that far behind you - after all I've been retired a few years now.)

I hope your day is filled with as many photos as there are candles on your cake.
Happy Happy Birthday, and many more.

Keep smiling and express your creativity.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! A very good friend of mine back in Rocky is celebrating her 52nd today.

Love how you did this image... more than the post yesterday.!! Can't tell where the vehicle had been... Love that content aware in CS5. I've downloaded the trial version to see if I really wanted to upgrade or not... I do!
