    I'm sure glad that I don't have to use that bathroom.
    Enjoy the picture and tell me what you think of it.
    Thanks.

    that's looks decrepit alright.

    What about cropping out the trunk on the right? I find I focus more on the outhouse without the tree.... though the tree does make it look like it's a creepy path to the loo.

    doesn't have enough pop. if you had been at a different distance the tree could have been used to help accent the outhouse, or you could have taken it out all together. also you dont have good tonal range. you have lots of greys, very little pure whites and blacks.

    I also agree with Mike on all points, especially about not having a good tonal range.

    a big problem with digital cameras is getting true black and white photographs. you really do need to do work on it in post processing to get true tonal range. It can really help an image and give it a totally different feel.

    What helped me is that I started on B&W film exclusively. Learned a lot about tonal range.

    Are you using Photoshop to do the conversion?

    much better, looks a lil towards the blacks which is okay if thats the look you were going for. gives it a more "creepy" feel and taking out the tree helps a lot and pull your eye directly to your main subject

    These are all flat. There's not white in any of these, just gray, more gray, and black.

    The clack of contrast doesn't make them very interesting.
