Experimenting with B&W again. These were taken at 7am in low morning light. P mode. Let me know what you think.

Hiroshi - They are all excellent! I can't believe I'm looking forward to dismal weather so I can put B&W on the front burner. Hope I can do aswell but I wont have those nice hills and lakes around. I assume these were taken in color and post processed. Are you also of the opinion that that is the best way to go? That is, post process (desaturate, etc) color rather than setting the camera to B&W.

The B&W was done in post processing. I've never used the in-camera B&W. I should try it one of these days just to see how it compares, and if it's not up to par, I would think that it can always be post processed to the desired levels.

BTWthanks, John and Fred, I'm glad you like the pics.

That may be the kicker. If the shot is taken in B&W, there may not be enough information to work with in post processing. As you say, a little experimenting wouldn't hurt. My problem is laziness. With the exception of levels adjustment and sharpening, my pping skills are nil.

I would like # 2 the best if you could have shot from a little lower angle where the limb in the middle was at the top of the shot and blocked less of the view. They are all good photos. What is the location of the photos?

I have been playing a little with b&w and sepia with photos. Here is one with the camera set to b&w. I did clone out some of the background.

What a great shot! A very photogenic girl. But you need to work on your cloning, its too apparent.
