Sigma DP2 / Sun stars / winter field BW

Winter replaces spring, summer and fall colors with browns. Lots of browns. Light tan, wheat fawn, dark tree trunk ocher and so on. Of course the sky is still blue, so that's good, at least if you're not too close to a pole and the sun doesn't show. Sometimes I respond by converting to grayscale, instead of brownscale. A kind of defensive mechanisim.

I cropped the sky a bit. Shot raw & developed in Sigma Photo Pro. Reduced to B&W & tweaked in PS6.

I knew the DP2's blades made for nice sun stars when stopped all the way down to nearly closed and aimed at a bright light. I guess I've read about the sensor's reaction to direct sunlight but if you haven't, well, here it is.
