As one who spent years in the darkroom perfecting my B&W printing, I love the look of your prints, er images......
One of my great fears is that with the digital age, B&W will become old school and forgotten.
By the way, how did you string your images onto one post?

Mind if I ask was the HDR or the B&W conversion done first?

thanks for replies

some of these were overeditied in color ages ago

I pasted the url from photobucket

Imtrying not to add too much to my shutter count because I may get the d80

I use raw in color in photomatix then a fiter in photoshop to go b/w

Fantastic series. I too used to do my own B&W darkroom work and love that art-form. I have yet to perfect digital B&W but you have definitely inspired me to work harder at it

Up until now I've successfully talked myself out of getting Photomatix, deciding that I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost, and you have to pick and choose your subject for HDR pretty carefully. However, these pictures are making a strong case for me to change my mind - they are very well done. There have been times when I just can't quite get what I think I want when converting to b&w.
