    Great workshop. Covered a lot of ground. I thought my head was going to explode. It clarified some workflow mysteries while confirming I was headed in the right direction in other areas. It also set me straight on serious short comings with my current workflow as it pertains to black and white conversion.

    Excellent. Harold provided amazingly detailed and candid visibility into his thought processes and approach to creation of his monochromatic works of art. Using an example of a recently taken shots of benches he went real time and walked us through not only his workflow and his thinking but also the particular tools and techniques in his arsenal with the result that we got to see and discuss, first hand, how he successfully created a beautiful B&W of the benches.

    I learned a lot today in the class, and had fun doing it. I enjoyed your honesty, i.e. your work flow technique is a work in progress, instead of "Of course I have all the answers".
