Default Burmis Tree, Crowsnest Pass

This tree always does well with B/W effect.

Wow... love the contrast..
This is a prime example of where B/W is superior to color. Very well done.

Thank you for commenting. I'm am becoming more and more interested in the B/W effect as color is quite distracting in some types of photographs.

That is awesome.

Not meaning to make fun but I just had an idea -- maybe my cheap Opteka screw-on fisheye/macro lens ($30) with its heavy fringing would be better suited for B&W photographs. Just a thought...

If you haven't tried it then go with your idea and see what comes of it. Sometimes great photos come from great ideas and with B/W's almost anything goes. Just have a look through some B/W magazines and you'll see many of the photographic rules for color just don't apply when trying to be artful or expressive by shooting B/W's.
