Those are very nice shots Greg. There is something about B&W that gives photos something extra. We have a lot of old barns in the area and I think that would be a good subject for B&W shots.

If I was up in your neck of the woods, that's probably what I would be doing. I might be shooting them both digitally, and with "real" black & white film.

I like both the film and digital "look", although I'll be the first to admit, if you like the resolution characteristics of digital in terms of sharp, defined individual tree branches/limbs/tiny distant street signs, etc, digital is definitely the medium to be using. Definition of those items, especially the more distant it is, gets lost partially in the grain of the film, and partially no doubt to some degree in the transfer of the negative to digital medium.

Every once in a blue moon you can find a barn that still has a faded advertisement painted on it. Now this type of barn I would prefer color over B&W.

Back in my film days I rarely shot Kodacolor, most of the time Kodachrome and if lighting was low I'd use Ektachrome and push it. I thought the slide film had a little better detail but that could be the processing and printing of Kodacolor. Thought Kodachrome had better color definition than Ektachrome.

,,,B&W looks good for the stadium, I may do some too, I've some cars that may be fun to see converted.

As for the parks around the stadium, they are going to be fun come spring and get all the shots you want of it from the parks trails because that parking lot is where 'Arlington Live' (the restaurants, entertainment venues and hotel will stand, beginning construction later this year.

Yeah, can't wait to see how nasty parking will be this next baseball and football season.

That series of photos comprises an interesting contrast of straight lines and curves. Nicely done, Greg.
