Are you a little sadist? IIRC, we have some members with arachnophobia...
(Luckily, I lost my arachnophobia within the last years)

To get this picture faster on a back page, here's a shot I took yesterday.
We visited Quedlinburg, a beautiful mediaval town (UNESCO world heritage):

I knew this one was perfect for B&W the moment I saw it.

Ha!, revenge for all our arachnophobic friends....I decided to leave some bleach in the sink while I went camping, and this little monster was found sunk at the bottom when I returned.

So sad

I just took some of my first B&W shots, so of course the first thing I have to do is upload one here



I think I'm going to be playing around in B&W a bit more after this first experiment. At least I don't have to worry about colour profiles

Nice grey tones in that one, Swox. What B&W method did you use?

Thanks Chinney

I actually took that one in RAW using my 40D's monochrome setting, then found out that it imports into iPhoto in colour, so I just put the saturation to 0, and lowered the exposure by about 0.2 or so, all in iPhoto

Is that why its still in colour?

I was taking photos of some lenses, doing some lens reviews on my blog, and I just loved the look of this early 80s Tokina 28mm lens in black and white.

These were taken with my ancient Minolta A1 a few months ago, and heavily doctored in LightZone:

Maybe a moderator can move this thread to the "Creative Endeavors", so it will be reunited with the Color Photography thread ...

A few shots taken while I was walking around on the Stanley Park Seawall. The last shot is taken near one of the support columns of the Lion's Gate Bridge.

About one year ago, I was in Phoenix for a conference. Here's a shot from a trip to the Apache Trail it did on that occasion (Lost Dutchman State Park):

Just a few simple portraits. One of the results of a promotional shot I did for their upstart student company.

I love this photo in black and white, colour just did not do this scene justice.

Now that the last snow from December had finally (almost) melted, we got about 7 inches of fresh snow last night...

Taken while walking my dog a few hundred meters from our house:

Here is a shot I meant to put in the PCT thread, but I realized that it broke the rules regarding post processing.
The sepia tone is from iphoto. I don't know if it's a bit too much. But anyway, I'm to lazy to tone it down




And here is another one on the same theme:

This is what happens when you are too lazy to switch the big (fixed focal length) tele lens on your camera with a more appropriate lens when the animals are closer than expected ...

That is a really nice shot! I was just messing around with some black and white photography, and came up with this shot of my keyboard. Not the most exciting shot I know, but the layout of these keys caught my eye for some reason or another. Maybe it's how dirty my keyboard is, and the fact that I need to clean it?

I never realised. Kinda cool actually.
The capture is great, a classic of what we grew up with.
