It was snowing on the afternoon of the 31st and my wife asked if I had any B&W film.:-) A couple of button pushes on my Z612 and I had B&W "film".

I love the whole series but I think number 3 is quite remarkable. It captures the mystery and peace of such a place at such a time. That's a picture I could hang on my wall. Thanks.

Rags:

Thanks for your kind words. I was shooting to "specs." to some extent as my wife wants a series of B&W snow pics to hang on our walls.

Just six days later we had unseasonably warm weather melting much of the snow. I took pictures of that as well from the same locations and the differences are significant. The tree in the first has no pictoral attraction at all. The repeats of two and three have interest but are quite different. I'll try to post as soon as I have a little more time.

Beautiful photos AC. B&W works great for those!

Very nice photos.

Is there any advantage to using the B&W setting on your camera, aside from saving maybe 10-20 seconds, rather thanconvert toB&W in your photo editing program? Seems like you can change a color photo to B&W but you can't make a color photo out of your B&W image, so you're probably better off shooting just in color.

Thanks.

Yes there is an advantage to shooting in B&W, pre-visualization. The LCD/EVF switches to B&W eliminating the guesswork of, say, is there enough contrast between the red flower and the green leaves to work pictorially?.

In this case there wasn't much difference between B&W and color as the falling snow eliminated most of the color.

I new the end product would be B&W so I considered it a benefit to visualize the scene in that mode from the beginning.
