Dark Beauty

Although the original colour image was great because of the dynamic colours in her hairdo, there is just something striking for me in the B&W version

Some random images.

Black and white images often resonate with me even when I like the original colour version. A few for scrutiny or just looking at.1. Can you see the little bug hovering? 2.Bush fire in rural South Australia on farmland 3.Silver Gulls at Goolwa South Australia.

Out in the Street

Lately I've been getting into shooting more street scenes in Montreal and while I like them both in colour and in B&W, it seems the B&W pop more...especially when it's a foggy morning. Constructive thoughts greatly appreciated :)

The hut under the cliff

From my first (and only, so far) trip to Iceland late last year. While the rest of the group were shooting a waterfall in the other direction, I turned around and spotted this little hut, looking precarious under a cliffside.

I joined fstoppers to get constructive advice from people who know photography, so fire away :)

Kitty Kat!

In between chasing my granddaughter at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, I managed to get some shots. I know that 99.9% of us will never get to see a majestic animal like this in the wild, but I still frown when I see this beautiful creature in such a small area. Yes, they are very well cared for, but it's just not how it should be.

I'm currently a junior in high school and one of our AP2D assignments was low-key photography and I have these different variations of some photos I took in the studio. Out of all of them, the one with 3 different faces is my favorite as it provides different perspective while still including low key aspects, but I'd like your opinions too.

Peaceful Evening

Trillium Lake is beautiful lake located on Mt. Hood about 60 miles east of Portland Oregon. It was a calm evening in August when this image was taken. I used a 3 minute exposure to smooth out the water.

Way to the future

Last week I went in the street and notice interesting perspective: old-style gates and far away from it skyscraper. It looked like from old to the modern. Distance to the gates was too close and I had at that moment only 50mm lens, so I have to shoot 9 shots to assemble panorama. And when I compare color and b\w versions of this image, I...

Oyster Mushrooms

I'm new to this group, felt I should share something of mine :)
It's an old piece that won me a spot in the Applied Arts Mag.
Constructive criticism is always welcome :)
