    Some late-night snow clearing after yesterday's over-hyped winter storm

    Snapped with an E-PL1 & Canon FD 100/2.8 @ ISO 1600, f2.8, 1/6 sec, hand-held.

    Hi deckitout, Winkel, Klaus, Streetshooter, Attorney Ron, jkung and All,
    I have enjoyed looking at a variety of excellent Black and White images posted by each one of you. There seems to be a lot of snow this winter to say the least.

    Here is an image recorded recently at Pasay City, Philippines. There is no snow there. GH2 + Leica D 14-150mm.

    leica... The architectural interior is magnificent and the street scene is the perfect subject for B&W.... Great lines, textures, and punchy tonality!

    Hi DHart,
    Thanks so much for your kind and friendly comments. I agree that there is something special about B&W even in today's color dominated world of digital imaging and photography. Best,

    Rich image, Leica 77! Great, sharp detail as expected from the 20/1.7. She looks like one very happy camper.

    Hi deckitout and Don,
    Many thanks for your kind words! I have known this lady for more than a decade. Whenever I visit Indonesia I make a point of visiting her two or three times during my stay. She sells baskets which local people use as containers for food. As Don pointed out, she is a happy person. I am always delighted to see her big smiles on her lovely face. Best,

    Re: Black & White pics, show yours !!!

    Spent the last week on the East Coast in my father's basement going through his tools. For someone coming from Hawaii, it was nice being trapped by the elements.

    Very quiet and peaceful in the basement, any sound being muffled by the snow.....I can see why my father spent most of his time there.

    If the measure of a man is by the number of screwdrivers he possesses, then he comes out on top.

    Shot with the PL25/2.8

    GH1 + Tamron 90mm Macro. Abit out of focus but I like the composition. I really don't know how to process B/W properly though.

    ha i dunno, just assuming there is probably some set of academic rules to follow when converting to BW other than just desaturate, adjusting blacks, exposure, sharpness, clarity..etc. Whatever looks good to the eyes seems to be working so far =)

    Here's another one called "Mary & Bitumen"

    Since I visited this thread last, there have been many wonderful B&W images posted by MRfanny, Pelao, Klaus, jsf, deckitout, mediumcool, RichM and abry.

    Here is an image recorded in Shanghai during my last visit there. E330 + Kit Lens.

    Leica.. great subject for B&W, geometric shapes and lines... with the people inside offering the organic, rounded juxtaposition. Sweet.

    Klaus... what a stunning portrait; fantastic expression, tones, sharpness.

    keeds... awesome textures and tones, very nice B&W rendition.

    greyelm... The tonality and slight softness totally give that image the look and feel of a traditional B&W print that could have been made in 1935.
