I've decided to post at least one monochrome image each week, hopefully it will encourage me to look closer at what I'm shooting.
Please feel free to comment and critique good or bad, I honestly don't mind and you never know I might learn a bit more.

Canon EOS 500D 1/1000 second F/4.5 ISO 1000 110 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Richard from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Nice idea, Doug. I think my only negative would be the patch of water, it somehow detracts

Wonderful tool. I have not used, but I've seen in use. Report emphasizes the image nicely brings grayscale.

I was going to say: A fantastic tool. I have not used, but I've seen in use. Report emphasizes the image nicely that grayscale.

I think this image looks great in b&w. It really brings out the detail of the machine, and the grass around it. Ove time, I have really come to like b&w, in some instances more than color. This is a beautiful composition and great processing!
