Re: Hustle & Bustle

Dez - Excellent shot of the most recognized corner of our know Universe! With all the colors and lights we're accustomed to of Time Square - this is so very refreshing! It makes you see what's really there without the distraction of all the glitz & glam of blinking bright colors.

Re: X10

Digby - The "Midnight" image is so intriguing. That one is like a projection of subconscious thoughts with dream elements - surreal and fascinating! Wonderful processing technique!

Re: Clinging Ivy

Nice contrast between the man made structure and nature. Also symmetrical and random shapes accentuated in B&Ws.

The windmill has just had some fresh paint- a cold and windy morning.

Re: Bar Eleven

Nice capture, Malcolm. A simple gate in the foreground leading us into wide open prairie & rolling hills. Beautiful land!

Re: Two WW II relics

David - you are so wrong hinting these as Useless Photos. They're fascinating subjects and with your masterful processing they all come very much to life. The contrast between the smooth chrome reflections with the light coming through the blinds from the windows - that image is not shot by mistake. Also, the shadow patterns on the Blackbird bending and stretching w/ the curvature of the aircraft - interesting & beautiful B&W image.

Re: Bicycle wheel

Hello Jim - it is so wonderful to see you! Looks like your handcrafted Bicycle project is coming along nicely. Is it completed? Would love to see the finished masterpiece!

As you can see I'm continuing on with your Legacy of this B&W thread (Thank you for starting it all way back when) and believe me every week it gets Maxed Out with Amazing Images. I can say that we all look forward each week to sharing and learning from one another.

Sorry for getting side tracked.... Beautiful close up detail of the wheel mechanics. Would we get to see the whole bike next? 

Cheers

Re: Playing The Harmonica.........

That's an awesome close up portrait, Carizi!  I know you are in Tinseltown - do you get passes or special invitations to events? You get up front access to many celebrities looks like. Nice shot!
