    I shot these B&W’s this spring and summer, trying to get a little better at it. These were shot with my Nikon 8400 Coolpix set to Monochrome setting.

    So you really PLANNED for these to be black and whites? Good. I think they become stronger and stronger, as we scroll, and my favourite two ALSO are 5 and 7! There must be something about those two ... ;)! But I also quite like all the gauges and valves on the fire truck in 6!!!

    Definately #5 and #7.
    Really like the POV and lines in the 5th image.
    Well done.

    Yup i agree pretty good stuff. Some nice B&W tones there, not the typicalish (nothing to do with tropical fish) flat tones you sometimes see from digital cameras. :)

    Thanks for the input, everyone. I am going to keep on trying.

    #5 is the main post office in Manhattan.

    #7 is from Long Island. Those are considered to be the largest speciemens of Dawn Redwood in the US. They rank up there in the world, also.
