    Greetings all, I've posted my images here: http://www.johnsphotography.ca/hold/Industrial/ to avoid clogging up the gallery.

    I am trying to achieve a stark industiral type of image... I've posted the original of each of the three, and then two B&W versions. With the "Rockshaft" images, I've also posted an additional two rotated about 30 deg.

    I would very much appreciate those who have the time going through the gallery and giving their input as to how the crops could have been better done, and what improvements can be made to the B&W conversion. As always, OTE!

    Thanks!

    I like the pictures are composed well, nice angle and depth of field. If you are going for the industrial minimalism look B&W is a must in my opinion, especially with high contrast and harsher tones. The first B&W shots of each seem to be to flat and the last ones are too blown out. I'll try a conversion and post them soon.

    Higher contrast, as the other poster pointed out.
