>>>Saturday B&W Thread - 5/4/2013>>>
Hello Everyone -
It's time for our weekly monochromes!
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/51365466
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.
Photographed this blooming 'Prunus serrulata' in time of last sunrays of the day.. thought some sepia toning will make the image warmer..
Best regards from the Sunny side..
I played with that file last week and honestly.... I am not to sure if that is really B&W or is it the way the scene was looking Anyway here is Mount Algonquin in the Adirondaks Mountains.

Fort Worden, at Port Townsend, WA, was an active US Army base from 1902 to 1953. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Worden, Fort Flagler, and Fort Casey, were built at the entrance with heavy coastal artillery creating a "Triangle of Fire" that could theoretically thwart any invasion attempt by sea.
Probably not so useful anymore except as a gallery for graffiti. High-key treatment courtesy of Nik Silver Efex Pro.
I really enjoy this thread, now when I take my hikes, in the back of my mind I'm thinking - "What would this look like in B&W?" Here are few images from my recent trip to southern Colorado.

Hello to everyone here.
My daughter and her cat sharing their siesta a few hot summers ago
Great image, excellent composition, Michel.. love the captured mood - kind of weather when sitting near a fire place with a hot beverage in hand is recommended .. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a color photo, was taking color shots out in the snow and they would turn into a B&Ws, LOL .. impressive image, thank you for sharing.
Lovely picture, Lee.. very impressed by crispness and sharpness, one could easily study the masonry technique here, each single stone is perfectly visible and defined .. looking at aged architectural beauties one wishes they could talk and tell us the stories of past times.. great work, mate.
Thank you for sharing, cheers..
Good set, David.. I like your processing, it's adding to an old look of the place, seeing all the concrete, methinks the fort has a long history to go jet .. found also images with some heavy guns mounted. Fine work, thank you for sharing.
nice capture of this flowering tree with this rustic old building in the background Bruno,
