Decided to try see how well I could do with my first shot at B&W without reading any tips or anything before hand.

No, I just kinda got the idea of B&W when I was messing around with it in photoshop.

Very underexposed. Shadows are black, and the snow is very gray.

A quick trip through NX2:

Brought the whites up into the high 240s

Unfortunately, it is also a boring host.. no interest. There is no subject... just a bunch of trees in the snow. What is the story? What does it mean? How is the viewer going to connect to it?

Damn, I didn't even realize how dark the whites were until you guys pointed it out :lol:
I know I should have read first, but I tend to like trying to figure things out on my own, first.
And yeah it's a pretty boring shot, not composed very well. I was just really happy to wake up to some snow this morning and decided to mess around a bit.
Thanks for the feedback guys.
