My first love is Black & White photography. It's what I was brought up with and still prefer to this day. I used to love spending hours locked away in my makeshift darkroom. Bits of hardboard at the windows, strips of negatives hanging, like useless fly paper from a thin line of string stretched across the room, the faint glow from the 'Paterson' red lamp... those were the days.

Thank God they're gone! Toning an image such as this was a smelly, hit and miss chore to be perfectly frank. And I know there will be a load of purists all queuing up to burn me at the stake for my views but give me CS3 and five minutes and Voila! Just my opinion....
