    I don't like when nature is done in black and white... I think the color versions would look a lot better.

    i like them, but these don't belong in the general forum, try posting in the B&w gallery next time
     
  4. I assume you're no fan of Ansel Adams then.

    Good work. I can't trust my monitor, it's hooked up to a broken video card so my contrasts and saturations are OFF the charts for another few days. It seems some images are too dark, but ultimately the question is ALWAYS "how much detail is visible in a print." As a .jpg there's no way to retain good detail.

    Compositionally they're excellent.

    Nice work!

    That last one looks like its sideways......the way the roofs come out.

    I usually do shoot colouyr, but personally I thought these shots worked without and that B+W would help their stronger elements bringing out the texture in number 1. Number 2 didn't have much colour to start with. Number 3 I thought was too distracting with colour. Number 4 I thought the composition would work better in B+W and the shot didn't need colour.

    I have seen many great black and white nature shots before, yes nature does often lend itself to colour shots though.

    Thanks, and yeah I realised that after I posted sorry.


    Thanks, I would like to print out as my monitor isn't accurate either, so it is quite possible they are on the dark side. Cheers for the crit and I'm glad you like the composition. :D


    It does a little... I had to capture that roof, it's quite unique in that it has no kind of supports.

    I really like that photo. The B&W effect makes it very authentic.
