>>>Saturday B&W Thread - 6/23/2012>>>
Hello Everyone -
Did you know that June 29th is Camera Day? It is to celebrate the importance of Camera to the society and how it changed our world.
Post a maximum of two images (post them in a single post, not split over two posts). It can be any camera, you can say what it is if you like. You can also say whether it was an in camera B&W and the mode or what PP software you use if you like.
Reply to this first post and change your subject line to reflect your subject. Please switch to "threaded view" instead of "flat view". I try and respond to all posts, but if your post is not threaded properly I may miss it.
You may include the colour originals if you like for comparison, this doesn't count toward your two weekly submissions.
It would be nice to hear why you chose B&W instead of colour.
Please be nice and comment on any photos you like. If possible, let's leave a full day for posting of the images and then we can follow up with comments. This should allow more people an opportunity to post an image.
Thanks in advance to all who participate and for making this something to look forward to each week.

always a pleasure to come here to post something in the B&W series
this has been taken this weekend in Montsalvat Eltham
I saw these plants growing beside an old shed and thought that a B&W treatment might work better than colour. What do you think?
LX5 Dynamic B&W, 'treaked' in Silkypix
And framed to leave out the sky & that distracting roof....
I like the textures and contrasting spikes....
I should have put this in this forum.
The Olympic torch came to my home town of Bury on Saturday, I managed to get 1 quick shot with my LX5.
Trying to get back into photography after a few years doing very little. Just purchased the Lumix FZ150. find it so much lighter than my DSLR.
Here are a couple of my attempts using the Black and white setting in camera.
Fine set, ANAYV.. well composed images, great tonal range and excellent detail - when in doubt for a car-wash, take picture of the wheel rims, LOL (kidding, of course!) .. good work..
Thanks for sharing,
Fine set, Deepak.. use of shallow DOF is making the images interesting, I like the second shot for composition and well chosen vantage point to match the picture and title .. thanks for sharing ..
