    Guess?
    I've recently returned from a road trip over in France where I explored a lot of small medieval villages in the Lot and Dordogne areas. The shots I took this year were all done with a view to making them monochromes for my "Backroads of France" series of photos for my website. I did a similar thing last year but in colour. These were shot in the villages of Lubressac and Carennac

    Sorry, should have said, these were shot on my aging Canon 550D using a Canon 17-40 L Zoom. The metering on the camera packed in whilst on the French tour so most to the shots were pure guesswork.

    New camera body time I think, I only ever buy cheap bodies as I abuse them too much but this one's lasted for 5 years so it's not done too badly. Lost it down a cliff in Iceland a few years ago but got it back, and although it carried the scars it still worked ok. Canon 7D next time I think - just got a car to pay for first!

    Oh car payments, those nasty things! Another three years, God help me. If your shots were guesswork, you guessed well.

    Really like the one with the boat!
    (Those selective desaturation work rarely for me, but you made it look great :) )

    Often the BW with one color photos are somewhat artificial (incl. my own) but these are exceptional! Very impressive, especially the one with the boat.
