    Sydney along with most of the Australian Eastern Seaboard took a battering over the last few days. I decided on doing a B&W series with the seas still on the wild side.

    Good God, Southy! Those all rock! And without having seen the color versions, I doubt that they could be any more dramatic. Well done!

    Thanks to the comments as always. I really enjoyed shooting this day. As for those two crazies in the pool, they weren't in there long. They just entered as I got there so I was lucky to get those shots. At first I was thinking you guys are crazy but I know if I was their age I probably would have been in there with them.

    I did process a few colour but drama was my aim for the day which I think works best in B&W. A bit of colour to add balance.

    Another eye-boggling set, Southy. And I was wrong. I think this one is better in color.

    The color set is also amazing! Definately not dramatic as the B&W but still excellent photos ;)

    Thanks. I use Lightroom CC to process my RAW images. I have a number of presents, both B&W and colour I have either made or downloaded. For the black and whites I have a preset which started as a free Fuji Neopan 1600 film preset download which I have modified to my taste. Once applied its just a matter of tweeking each image till I'm happy.
