>>>Saturday B&W Thread - 4/13/2013>>>

Hello Everyone -

It's time for our weekly monochromes - yes indeed.

You may post as little or as many images you wish to share. So please share with us the world you saw & captured in monochrome.

Last week's thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51238317

The image(s) can be from any brand of camera. 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. 
It would be nice to hear why you chose B&W instead of colour.

Please be nice and comment on any photo 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.

Overlook and harbor

'Twas a cold and dreary day, and I needed something to do. I shot these with an infrared converted LX5, then processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro and other apps.

Ornamental grasses with peekaboo view of the harbor

Where did I go wrong, I better read the instructions again.

Fantastic pictures everyone.

The wife's spring projects keep me from responding to each.

This is another week of awe inspiring images.

Re: Vintage Air

Excellent take, Dez.. B&W renditionĀ is emphasizing the vintage feel of this image - my guess would settle for a Douglas DC-3 Dakota .. thanks for posting and bringing back some wild memories ..

Best regards,
