Default Black & White experiments

Just fooling around a little bit with some black and white shots to see something different. Just thought that I would share a few for the group.



Pictures follow.

neat concept Steven, I like 1&2 the best. I have done this before for portrait shots, never thought about doing it with nature images.

All are nice Steven, but since I have a fondness for dragons, I like #1 best.

You picked out some great subjects to apply this look. #1 is my favorite, followed by the last two,

Hi Steven,

I like the use of selective color removal as you've applied it here in this series.
I'm also in the group that like your first image the most. The dragon fly is good and sharp and seems to pop out of the frame.

I will say, that I also like the last image. I could see that as a holiday card.

Thnx for sharing

Zig

This done with what, Photoshop-ish app? Or some sort of filter from the camera?

Actually, I was trying out a little free program (tint -it) that does it very easily and simply. While they charge for the plug-in download, the stand-alone version is free. I probably have a total time of 5 minutes invested in the 10 pictures that I played with and posted on Smugmug.

As you all probably know, I don't have the real patience to spend a lot of time doing PP, so quick and simple always appeal to me. I could never become the PP master that Greg Chappell is.

I downloaded the software at:

Here are a few more examples. This software is really quick and easy to use.

Very cool effect. I like the last shot of the first series best (the cocktail glass).
