Another one of the first photos taken with my new camera. I took the same shot in colour and b/w, I prefer the b/w.

Yes, I also prefer the B&W. Evokes a very somber mode.

You did a great job with the composition Yorkie. I like both photos equally. Enjoy your new camera.

Both have their own, unique visual rewards.

I really, really like them both - it is amazing though how the change makes itan entirelydifferent picture. Thefirst one is serene - I am waiting for a boy and his dog to some down the path . . . The second has a differnent mood for me - it makes me thing of Emily Bronte books . . . just has that look! Heathcliffe or a carriage should be along any time now. ( :? Yanking myself back to reality!!!) Very nice job Yorkie!

Composition is the only aspect of photography that in which I have any confidence, the rest is just trial and error at the moment but I learn something new everytime I go out with the camera. lol

Earth calling Suze!, come in Suze ! :-)

I know what you mean about the feeling when you're looking at the photo, I half expect Dick Turpin to ride past. lol

Hello and welcome to the forums.

I like the b/w shot a lot, though for me, it could have a little more contrast. (don't ever take my word on colour saturation or contrast :-))

I use a plug-in that allows me to emulate the different photographic filtersused in film b/w work. (sorry I can't remember the name right now... something like B/W-Plus) You can set it to suit the tones in a particular photo.I suppose a pro would know which colour channels to adjust, but for a relative newbie like myself, I find it very helpful.

By the way. I really do like your shots... the composition seems to suit everyone's tastes here.
