Dave, another great black and white conversion with very cool texture on the body of the elderly Dagga. I'm curious which Topaz app you are using? I know you were using Topaz Glow, but this doesn't look like Glow to me. In any event, the treatment on the elderly Dagga was applied and presented beautifully. :)

No complaints about this one, Dave- really well done- the whole thing hangs together so well, and the attitude of this Dagga really says "old" with the sagging posture and somewhat dull eye- very expressive. Contrasts are well done too as is the turn of his head. Terrific!

Hi Ron.  Just B&W and painterly on this one.  (first on the main TiFF file which looks Terrific 'scuse the pun)... Of late, have been working the full size image rather than a downsized pre-posting size shot, so have been able to print large where this really shines...

Such imposing creatures at any age once they're past the calf stage Dave. This old bull still has that 'air' about him, even in his senior years, and your artistic treatment enhances the picture so well.

Got it. Thanks, Dave. Working full size is the way to go.
