A close up of his head and you could pretend it was a moon shot, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I could add an Apollo spacecraft perhaps Ray?

All he needs is a sponge and soap to make it shine.
Great selective colouring.
Bill Phillips: It is a fake Lady P. I added the colour bit afterwards
I love how you've only kept his screen in color!
Bill Phillips: Total fake E. I added it afterwards

You did good, Bill, will your selective-coloring imagination! smile
Bill Phillips: The colour bit was added afterwards Ginniewink

He isn't taking COLOUR pictures I hope - fine shot!
Bill Phillips: Actually that isn't even his picture...it is the one he got me to take in that garden!

Haha- and then he has to convert his photographs (only photographs) in b&w.
Bill Phillips: Inded Philine but he does it so well!
It's too bloody dark again, have another go.
Bill Phillips: It is exactly as I wanted it.

Good to see an expert at work; I hope you took lessons.
Bill Phillips: He is my inspiration for b&w Alan.

So he shoots in colour but presents in B/W
Bill Phillips: Don't we all vintage?

I would have left it all in b/w but I understand and appreciate your thinking.
Bill Phillips: I was going to originally comrade but couldn't resist!!

How can Mikedog take colour pictures of black and white things? He looks thirty something. what a youngster.
Bill Phillips: Because he is so much cleverer than you or I

Do I know that bloke? Good grief I must be more careful in future!

Just for the record with my 'proper' camera I used to shot in B&W so that I saw the result. However, I switched to keeping the full colour file so that you can digitally simulate filters rather than having to fasten them on.

Fine shot btw and not too dark.
Bill Phillips: As most of what I do is colour I always shoot in colour. Some pictures I take with them being b&w in mind, but when I convert them they don't work!

Terrific B&W. Love how you have added the colour on his screen.
Bill Phillips: I couldn't resist doing that Aussie

I believe mr Ridge is asking a valid question. But then, he (the dog) is an artist.
Bill Phillips: You have answered the question Louis
Very creative, Bill, and you've gotten praise from The Maestro, himself. Well done!
Bill Phillips: My day has been made Beverly grin
noir et blanc en couleur
Bill Phillips: Indeed so. Thanks for the comment
I picked up from your answers re the colour shot bit, very clever, but I had expected to see Mike using a much more sophisticated camera.
Bill Phillips: That was his iphone I think. I don't think he had gone out with the intention of taking pictures
Excellent image with the selective coloring Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Richard
Good one, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Frank smile
It's nice to see what the Maestro looks like Bill... good capture....petersmile
Bill Phillips: A reluctant superstar Petergrin
Good composition Bill, the iPhone is pretty capable tool.
Bill Phillips: A lot of phones are. My daughter's HTC has an 8 mega pixel camera and it takes pretty good pictures

I think you should have added something completely inappropriate to the phone screen - even more inappropriate than a colour photo for Blackdog grin
Bill Phillips: Hahaha The mind boggles Paul!
I like the exposure and selective colouring, Bill smile
I think you are showing us yours, to tell the truth, Awesome.
Great treatment Bill
Bill Phillips: Thank you Sarah
