    Default Black Powder in Black & White

    Flinchbaugh and I went to his gun club on Sunday for a Black Powder shoot - Flinchbaugh was a spotter. It was very interesting to see all the old guns, these were not the real old guns but the old west style guns like the Sharpe's Rifle and several others. All were single shot, breach load guns and all these guys made their own ammo and of course some dressed the part.

    It was fun - OLY E-30 50-200

    Most of these seemed better suited for Black & White so I converted them using Topaz B&W plugin.













    It was a nice group of guys and one woman and some very good shooters....it was amazing to watch.

    Comments and Critique is always welcomed and encouraged.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Breach Load and Taking Aim are my favorites! Your work tells a story of the event.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks all - these all really lent themselves to B&W and I love the treatment that is rendered with Topaz B&W.
