    Ok, I didn't put this in general, because I am looking specifically for help on my Black And White photos.

    I personally LOVE B n W photography. It's more forgiving, and in a lot of cases the lack of color gives the subject a better chance to be developed.

    Regardless, some of my BnW looks better than others, and I wonder why? Is it the contrast? Is it the composition?

    I can't put my finger on it, so I am asking you guys to!

    Here is a link directly to just my recent BnW work:

    I'm not sure what is bothering you. Maybe you could be more specific. I like the trumpet shot a lot.

    I also love the trumpet player. Could you give us any insight to that shot? Was it staged? What about the settings?

    Love it!!

    I like your work, and subjects like "Mel" must be real tough to shoot.;)

    The subjects are pretty varied, but I have to agree with the others, the standout shot is the trumpet. Reason number 1 the composition. Reason number 2, I like to see photos that cover the entire scale from pure black to pure white and that one has it.
