Second day with B/W
A big improvement. Again, that's in my opinion , which is worth every penny you paid for it.
More of my opinion:
First photo: doesn't work because the birds heads don't stand out at all from the background. Depending on the colors involved, using a color filter effect might help.
Second photo: very good. For some reason I get a feeling that it's tilting to the right. The right side of the monument might be too dark for some people. I like high contrast, but I'd bet a lot of people would rather see a bit of detail in there. A little post-processing work would probably help this one.
Third photo: selective color gone awry. Why do you want me to look at the foliage?
Fourth photo: at least here the selective color is on the subject. But overall, it's not a strong picture and the selective color mainly points out that it's not a strong picture.
Fifth photo: odd image. Parts of a lot of stuff, with nothing that's whole. It doesn't work for me, but perhaps from some kind of post-modern viewpoint it might mean something.
Sixth photo: good composition, good B&W treatment, but the depth of field wasn't enough to keep the girl sharp.
Seventh photo: the best of the bunch. Good work.
Eight photo: good except for the girl's expression.
