    Just joined and this looks like a wonderful forum.
    I prefer to shoot B&W landscape and quite often 'minimal' in nature. Here are a few of my recent images. Please enjoy.

    Stunning, absolutely stunning. All 3 exude atmosphere.

    3rd is my favourite.

    I wish my B&Ws could look as good

    How much post processing did you do on these?

    Slaphead, thankyou for your comments. I try as much as possible to get my images composed and exposed properly in-camera. I only shoot in Raw, so there is almost always a bit of adjustment with contrast, levels and unsharp mask. On most images, as with these, I will often spend up to an hour editing and then review again the next day, before deciding to share them with others.
    abraxas, thankyou and thanks also for the welcome.
    Thankyou Ernie. I can assure you that other then when I shoot Infrared or perhaps creatively manipulate an HDR image, what you see is what I saw and very much real.
    Thanks again.

    Heya SympL, welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    You're arriving here with an absolutely WONDERFUL set of photos! Very, very beautiful, and perfectly taken!

    I saw the first and thought, yes, minimal, that's what it is.
    Then saw the second and my jaw dropped a little further and I thought "This is bound to be my favourite". Then came the third ... and now I hold you responsible for me not finding my jaw again... it must be somewhere underneath this desk of mine...
