    There is a lot of great color work posted into the galleries here by some wonderful photographers... am I missing something? I hadn't realized it was supposed to be just black and white.

    Just tweaking everyone's nose a bit ..... Yes, there is some great color work here, I particulary like Baxter Bradford and Robert Jaques's work. You have to admit though, sometimes there is an expectation of B&W here.

    As you know Robert, I use mostly Portra NC. Velvia is like deep-fried mars bars: too much of a good thing.

    Struan,

    Thanks, I didn't realize you did color as well. There are a lot of good color workers here, like the ones I mentioned, but many I didn't mention, like John Callow and yourself. Of course, I didn't mean to slight anyone, with 10000 members it is hard to keep track of everyone. But, it is true, the most active part of the forum is from the B&W community - and there certainly isn't anything wrong with that, there are some stunning B&W photographers here, some that would get approval from the old master Ansel Adams, if he was still alive, I'm sure.

    Hello All,

    6AM in Amsterdam Airport with a 3 hour layover before moving on again to Scotland. Thought I'd look-in on the site to see what's up to kill some time. Hoping to soon check-out some of the great tips I got from Struan and all others. Tired, but excited to get there and explore. Thanks again to everyone that has given their help!

    Nice one Bill

    You have got a nice little 'WHERE TO GO' view points list here from some fine photographers. And I'll be following in your footsteps in february. Cool.

    What a great community to belong to!

    Have a great trip.

    Stoo

    Hi Roy and all,

    Writing this from a bar in Kyle of Localsh 'looking' out at the Isle of Skye. I really can't see it though due to the weather. Had some good results so far, but not nearly what I had hoped for. My luck withy weather has been not good. So it goes for Scotland in the Winter!!! Almost a total rain-out so far, but there is still time to go. Great suggestions Mono and Struan! Goigach was beautiful!!!!

    More to come if I see another access point.

    I've been keeping an eye on the weather up there and have seen it has not been good . Should improve over the next few days (http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/ukweather/nscotland/)

    Cheers, Bob.
