I was trawling the serious compacts Flickr group and cam across Tadhg Mac's photostream. And somewhere in the middle my head exploded. The Brave Wee Pine of Strathconon | Flickr - Photo Sharing! Can anybody explain the PP to me? It's surely not just straight BW conversion then tweaking, the sky is black! I'd love to understand this better, it would be phenomenal to even attempt this kind of thing. Hopefully come the summer I'll be hitting the hills with dog and full camera kit so I'll get more chances for trying out landscape stuff. I'm beginning to wonder if I need to investigate filters.
