As I have an increasing interest in black & white imagery, I have processed the few workshop images done so far in color and then black & white. This particular image of a cascade up at Greenbriar seems more effective in monochrome. OK, good and I move on. Then I check out our workshop mentor’s blog posting after his two workshops in the Smokies. And what do I see but his interpretation of the same shot.  (See his blog for comparison: http://tonysweet.com/blog/)

Did I copy his shot? Nope. Seems we selected the same shooting spot at different times as the group wandered up and down the creek. More interesting to me is the preferred monochrome presentation. Now,  would I copy a specific shot? Absolutely. For all sorts of reasons – some reasonably altruistic, some purely selfish.
