hey hengki thanks for the help, sorry if im being a pain, when you take the photos do you take them in RAW colour, then convert to B&W in photoshop, what presets do you use in photoshop is the question im really asking.
The beauty of B&W in Photoshop is the ability to control each of the color channels (red,green,blue,yellow,cyan and magenta). I mainly use "Adjustment" to play with "Channel Mixer" or "Black&White" to convert RAW color to B&W. After satisfied, I use Tools such as : Dodging, burning and blurring for finishing. I never use preset because it limits your result. Hope this helps. Thanks.
I could look at this forever, I think because it has captured...oh, who knows. Who cares? If there were a little mini-music player on this page, I would press the selection for Judy Collins' cover of "Send in the Clowns." That is the mood I get from this, and a precious feeling it is.

At first I thought this was a manipulation because those all look so unreal(with streamy water and almost unseen horizon) like you put those people and objects there. Then I realized and for me, this is amazing But I think, you should put some watermark or something, just in case.
Great use of contrast. I just love how you don't apply to the typical rules of thirds yet the image is still eye candy. I don't know why but I feel like the boardwalk is slightly offset. I don't know if that was something you were going for but it was just more or less fyi. But this again, is a wicked awesome shot.
Oh, I was so suprised when I clicked on this to find people all along the pier! The high key light of a pier is what first attracted my attention but the details in the people is just like icing on the cake. Great job!
