These two -- this one and "buttons" -- are unbelievably pretty. The black and white is stark, but shows the patterns in both in perfect detail, and the blurred backgrounds mean the patterns and textures are completely visible. Excellent photography!

Thank you !

Honestly black and white photography is something that's very challenging for me. Both of the photos that you mention were originally shot in color, and I converted them in PSE-7.

I've been playing around with a lot of my old color photos, and most of them don't convert well to b/w at all. I was really hesitant to even post these at first, as most of my gallery is so bright with color. Maybe too bright ! :D

You're welcome -- you definitely shouldn't have hesitated, these two are brilliant! And it's always nice to have variety. I've never tried to convert my photographs to black and white; it sounds tricky to get it right, and I can believe that. I would like to try black and white photography, though. Just need to get hold of film. But pictures like this inspire me to give it a a go (:

I've considered using film, but my interests are more in the realm of Holgas and Polaroids than black and white photography. I imagine that film photography is very expensive, isn't it?

It is possible to set my Canon to record in b/w, and then there's the issue of recording a RAW image instead of a JPEG. I've haven't really tried either of these routes, and need to quit being lazy :D

I use a Lubitel, which is something between a Holga and a "serious" film camera... Anyone with a Holga says it's too complicated and anyone with a posh camera says it's just a toy! I like it, but you're right, it is fairly expensive. All that means I can't take nearly so many photographs (I could count how many I've ever taken, if you wanted!). I just prefer the reality of a negative, the simplicity of the mechanism and the (often pleasant) surprises that you get from shooting and not seeing the result 'til long after. Each to their own! (And I would love to play around with polaroids some day, if and when I can get my hand on a good polaroid camera.)

Thought I'd try black and white for a bit ... everything here is so green all the time, with no real autumn.

I just can't post green this time of year! :D

Black and white is something extremely special.
The photo has to be GOOD to get a good black and white...!
