Tones on Tuesday #9 11.15.11

I am very behind in my posting this week. I am going to try and do some catch up soon, but I wanted to be sure to get Tones on Tuesday up for those who want to link up. I remain inspired and awed by your photos and am so happy to get the opportunity to see and learn from you. Here are my 3 showcases this week, followed by my own picture and the link up. I can't wait to see your alterations :o)!

Nadege at Moments in Time
I really like what the black and white does for the mood of this photo. Nadege titled this post "Come, Sit, Relax." That is exactly what this photo makes me want to do :o). Thank you for linking up Nadege!

Gillian from Building Bumps
I love the complete innocent of this moment captured. The soft tones and the natural frame of the crib are just lovely. Thank you for linking up Gillian. 

Jeanne from Butterfly Tales
Each week Jeanne manages to produce a work of art with the way she edits the tones in her photo. I love the vintage feel of this barn, you can just imagine that it has been standing for years and will be for years to come. Thank you for sharing Jeanne!

My photo for this week is a simple black and white conversion of a foggy scene I took on a visit to Tolt McDonald Park in the rain with my brother's girlfriend who has become a good friend of mine and a great photography buddy. I took this photo with my telephoto and my goal was to capture the fog while staying under an awning in order to prevent my camera from getting soaked. For the black and white I followed a simple video tutorial that Courtney from Click it Up a Notch created for use with Lightroom. Easy to follow, yet allows for me to put my own stamp on each photo.

Settings: ISO 400, 250mm, ss1/320, f/5.6 (full manual, cloudy wb)
