Since we seem to be in a 'back to basics' state of mind, with threads that deal with pictures rather than cameras, how about a black and white thread. Post your best attempts at the traditional photographic artform and lets see some real critiques. I will repost a couple ofolder images to get things started and everyone feel free to join in.

Used two exposures so the moon would not look like a white ball.

Here's a tree stump I found on a walk. I thought it looked pretty cool in B&W.

Way to go folks, great images here. Hey Joel, is that really black and white or is the subject actually black and white.

Keep'em comin'.

Here are three images. I do love B&W - but doing it in digital is very different. I miss the gut feeling of watching the image rise out of the "soup". Back when I had hair - I was buying 100ft rolls and rolling my own. (Subsequently lost 20 years of negatives to water damage and mice - just need to move forward).

Three posts - since I can not get more than one image per attachment
