I took this one last fall and thought it might look good in black and white. I'm really still trying to get a handle on how to execute black and white.

That's brilliant! Love it. The pigeon perched on the wing is a nice touch, too! As for executing B&W, it's something I'm always working on. I have a few presets in Lightroom that suit my style, but I'm always fiddling with the image even after the preset ... and it doesn't always come out the way I'd like it to.

Timby, I had that same setup - the 18-55mm kit lens on a T2i - for quite a while. I was happier when I upgraded to the 18-135mm ... much more versatile and better IQ, as well. My 70D came with the newer 18-135mm STM and it's very sharp for a kit lens.
I'm starting to worry about this voyage ...
