Some are shot directly in B+W using the B+W filter on the camera. There are some SOOC examples in the article. More SOOC B+W shots here:

Fantastic photos. Thank you.

I don't know anything about wildlife photography, but I always find that getting closer to one's subject makes for a more engaging, and thus more endearing, image. And if the viewer can connect with the animal they are more likely to care about it. Hopefully wildlife photography will encourage more conservation.

On Up close: The beauty of butterfly wings article (47 comments in total)

Wings are beautiful, indeed as are butterflies….from a distance. But close up their heads and probosces are not attractive:

Thanks! Shot the hell out of it in just a couple of months! :)

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

So this is how and why camera makers can keep making money out of people. Over 2100 comments about a piece of gear and only a few dozen or so comments on posts to do with actual photography! :P

Most people care more about the gadget than the art. Must be human nature or something.

"Give a man a piano and he has a piano. But give a man a camera and suddenly he's photographer."

(and let the vitriol begin)

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview (584 comments in total)

I was curious about this camera when I heard it announced, but the IBIS and LIVE TIME functions on the Olympus EM5 are so useful to me that I don't regret my purchase. Having captured a variety of subjects with m4/3, I think this format is just great. My FX Nikon is a paperweight.

Stunning photos. I think for the last one, he may have intended the title to be "Slip the SURLY bonds of Earth..." by John Gillespie Magee, used by Peggy Noonan to write a speech for President Reagan to describe the fate of the Challenger Shuttle crew in 1986. "Slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God."

Amazing photo nonetheless. :)

I like both images. Equally striking. Hope the girl (now woman) is doing well.

On How many megapixels do you need? post (221 comments in total)

My 3 year old Nokia N8 still takes excellent photos and seems to be perfectly capable to me. Image quality is perhaps also defined by the creativity of the user... :)

Alpha Whiskey Photography: My food looks more appetising and is certainly healthier than this.

My original comment didn't criticise this work (although you seem to be her defence attorney here:)).
And in my blog post, which isn't for marketing either, I state quite clearly that my food photos are a first for me, so your observation about 'freshness' is actually spot on. I just don't find the food in this set particularly inviting or appealing. The artistic merit of the photography is a matter of personal taste.
I would be interested to see if you had photos of your own that you could dare to share with us, since you seem to offer a lot of critique across many articles on this site :)
Cheers.
