Default Slot Canyon - A Study in Black & White

I decided to try some conversion on a few of my slot canyon shots...

All converted with Topaz B&W Plugin for CS3...used Classic "Grained"

The last two are my favorites...

Comment away!!

Enjoy, I am...

What striking photographs! They almost look like some kind of abstract art paintings. Nice tonal quality to all of them. Almost like they have a kinda creamy look dream-like quality about them.

I have a hard time picking favorites, but I think that my picks would be numbers 2, 3, and 4, but there is not a bad one in the bunch.

Fine pictures; the B&W conversion is great.

You did a great job with your camera Jim.

Beautifully pictures, everyone of them.
You made a very fine job Jim!
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

I'm not a big fan of B&W but these are well done - the conversion makes them abstract which is a great effect.

When I think of slt canyons I think of the beauty of colour and light. B&W for them doesn't work for "me." Good shots though.
