The Soldier Fire that burned in Mescalero. Fire was not contained as of this photo.
Drawings taped to two windows on the fourth floor of the art building of Montgomery College.
Riverbank Bridge over the Torrens River in Adelaide - South Australia. I liked the reflections on the underside of the bridge which seemed to add an abstract quality.
Mooring rope in a marina. Monotone treatment seemed to suit this image best as the colours were dull and distracting.
Hi! I'm new to this group as well as the hole of Fstoppers so this is my first post :)
I wondered what peoples opinions are on when to use black and white in portraiture?
I generally just use it to cut out distracting colours or to de-clutter the background.

With this photo I have the model on the elevation where you already get a different perspective in the photo....
This image is from my last trip to Asia and I found this area by accident. I couldn't help but feel drawn in by the lines and the energy of the trees and water. I chose the black and white treatment because I often get distracted by color when looking at older structures.

The weather may be wintery, but apparently the trees march to a different drummer. This bud is but one of many on this beautiful tulip magnolia.
Looks like an interesting group. Some samples of recent work and mainly what I do:
Color or B&W?

Palm House at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, South Australia. An exquisite restored Victorian glasshouse imported from Bremen in Germany in 1875 and thought to be the only one of its kind in the world. It was opened in 1877 and has been a focus in the gardens since that time. The hanging glass walls are similar to those used in modern city...
My use of Ansel Adams' tones on one of my favorite buildings to shoot. Let me know what you think. I'm taking a break from color and really focusing on getting the tones I want in black and white. Constructive critiques welcome.
