    i dont generally do B&W because i havent really tried anything that i thought merited it
    but here are some attempts =P

    ok, this isnt completely B&W i did a little extra PP
    and i hate how blanked out the sky ended up being but it was the only way to make the rest look how it did (im a bit of a B&W noob =P)

    any C&C is greatly appreciated
    thanks for looking =P

    for the second shot you should consider trying f16 to bring the whole rail into focus

    Does your camera have filters for black and white built into it (should be red, orange, yellow, etc)? If so, experimenting with those may yield better results. If not, investing in some may be beneficial (that is, if you plan to do more black and white).

    Good luck.

    I really like the second one. I agree that it might look a little better if a bit more of the track was in focus, but great shot!

    I think the second one is fine as it is. =] I don't think you need to bring the whole rail into focus, though it would create a different effect. I like the second one better. Diagonal line = movement =D Peaceful, quiet, etc.

    good job on the second pic, it works for me in both line and composition...I think it could do with a touch more contrast.
