with some new black and white conversion techniques.
That second giraffe shot is stunning...the contrast on the body is really great.
damn thanks mike!!! thats an awesome comment!!!
I agree with Mike. I think if you can apply that contrast to #1, it will be stunning as well. It's just lacking a little punch.
The shot of the flowers I feel could be a shade or two lighter, and perhaps a bit more contrast, and it would really pop.
For the last one, I would give boost the contrast on just the elephant. Use a curves or levels adjustment layer and mask off the background on the top so it retains its' current contrast.
I really enjoy the compositions of all 4
thanks matt!!! i really appreciate all the feedback gang!
i agree, i like the flower shot alot, but it's all blacks/greys with no whites. so like matt said, maybe contast or brightness.
i love the contrast in the 2nd shot, but I like composition of #1 better than #2
I love the shot of the elephant. I just kept looking at it's eyes! I've never noticed where an elephant's eyes were.
The 2nd giraffe is awesome. The spots are so clear!
#2 is frickin unbelievable. WOW.
Untill I found this forum, I never would have even thought of converting or shooting b&w. These are perfect examples of why I try almost every one of my photos in b&w now.
Splendid work Matt....splendid!!!!!
Elephant - I can feel the texture
flower - Stunning work!
giraffe - agrees with Digi Matt on the need for more contrast.
Why is the elephant not dark?? :scratch:
Some great work I have seen from you thus far! :thumbup:
i agree with this ... this composition in the first is great ... wtg :thumbsup:
The second giraffe shot is excellent but to me something just is not right about that elephant shot. For me the look of the image is just not right, sorry.
I like the composition of the flowers and elephant a lot. The elephant looks so sad.
