    The first is sooooo much an Amsterdam photo totally without it being cliché or without showing the picture postcard views. Whoever's been there and has taken a guided tour in these flat boats through the canals there knows how much this is "Amsterdam", too! Very nice.

    And, indeed, your friend is a perfect model for black and white... and I like the fact that in this case you went for the "landscape format" for a portrait. The nice bokeh that your lens is giving you shows that she still is on that boat, I at least can make out as much, so the background adds to the photo in connection with the fact that it was taken in Amsterdam and not anywhere else.

    Nice set of B&W photos! You are right, your friend is an excellent model, she has such character that is enhanced by the B&W format!
