    So I put this photo in B&W becaue i didnt reallyc are for the colors, and its a white house anyway , its just got a brown wood door. But i dont know if i really like how it looks... I always see everyone else's black and white photography and it just has a sharper, cleaner, more black and white look... I feel like my photos are always lackign something in just how the B&W looks, it doesnt seen like i'm doing it right or somethign.. i need as much feedback on this as i can get, feel free to tweak it if you want. thanks!

    Shorty, I like it, it has a slightly creepy yet nostalgic feel to it. however, I can't help you with the "black and whiteness" of it, as I haven't found the magic elixir for it myself. My black and whites always seem to be missing "something". Perhaps because I've viewed too many Ansel Adams', and have been spoiled by his great B&W work.

    I love the compossion of this one. However, it is a little out of focus and the house itself is just about to blow out (completely white). I would probably burn the house a bit (not much because I like the contrast) and sharpen the picture a little.

    its not out of focus ... something went wrong between photoshop and here, because it was pretty sharp at 100% when i photoshopped it, i think photobucket is ruining my photos...

    I think that what defines the AA school of exposure is the number of well defined mid-tones. Altho this photo has whites and blacks the mid-tones are quite weak.

    You can manipulate the curves to strengthen the mid-tones and produce a more AA look (altho I liked the original soot and snow image)

    The original is on the left and its histogram is below.
    The hi-res original can probably be manipulated to produce quite a nice print.
