    These are my B&W photos (started shooting in September) I would love some C&C so I can get better at shooting B&W.

    I'm only a beginner but as no-one else has given any feedback I thought I'd give it it a go.

    I like 1 and 4 the best. The first one is my favorite though, it's nice and simple and the composition and contrast work really well. Number 4 has a lovely old feel to it and helps it stand out more when compared to picture 3, although the lighting in 4 is pleasant.

    I dont think 2 and 5 work as well, the bright light in 2 spoils it as it obscures the spider web and is distracting, which is a shame as the left side is lit really well.I don't know what it is but 5 has weird blurryness to it, it looks like maybe you were moving when you took it.

    This probably hasn't helped much but keep up the good work! :)

    How are you converting to black and white?

    In any case, check this out.

    Edit: Wait, did I already ask you this question? o_O

    wow..and to actually critique your work....

    the top one's my favorite, another reason the rule of thirds is a guideline of thirds..The spider web one is quite abstract. The tree in the background looks like a cautious hand about to pick at the spider hahaha. the last one is so..ghosty..great.

    This are all very unique, and interesting

    You have some amazing work. I especially like how you got the solidity of the spiderweb without taking away from the rest of the picture. Good job.
