I missed all the lines and architecture, but if I hadn't I would have contributed this ;)

PS - If you missed 'em since i flipped the page, go back and look at Ivo's & Slobodan's portraits, Matt's ice and Armand's floral posted just a little bit earlier today - good stuff!  (I always feel a little bad for flipping a page not too long after the last post on the previous one).

Nah. It's the tin man blowing his stack. He can't stand the modern city. Wonderful bw tonality.

Wonderful bw tonality.

Thank-you

Studies, in Black and White. A simple photograph that could be processed in so many different ways contrast, shadow and highlight detail, colour toning perhaps, and so on. I often find that it takes me even longer to be satisfied with a monochrome rendering than a colour one. Someone else might make very different choices, of course, and produce a very different image. In fact, I've done that myself sometimes, when revisiting an image.

This one has more dramatic lighting, yet calming; I think because of the environment and what the subjects are projecting to the viewer. Excellent.

Are you sure you don't see in bw? What would this image be without the excellent tonality. Good, maybe. But with this rendering, it just comes to life.

Frosty cottonwoods this morning. I find winter landscapes often lend themselves well to monochrome renderings.

Other than the sun, which drags my eye and won't let go, it's a fine image.

I like this one even better than the one above on this page. The backlighting really makes it!

It does grab your eye, but it is part of the scene and you instantly recognize why it is there. It's the sun in sun filled image. That's the way I look at it.
