great black and white! I was reading an article on DPS called the "10 deadly sins of post processing" and number 10 was "texture overlay" and the author went on to say that, 99% of the time it doesn't help the photograph, there are only a few examples of people who know what they're doing, and I immediately thought of your photoblog, keep up the excellent work

@Chris Pereira: Wow, I so appreciate that vote of confidence ! I will keep on experimenting and sticking my neck out....and, therefore, depending on you for honest reflection and to let me know when I fall short of the mark. :-) Thank you so much !
