2005-03-02: Sorry it's yet another ominous looking black and white, I promise more colour when the sun comes out and energy returns.
No need for apologies - this is lovely. It has a very toy camera feel and that's meant to be a compliment. :)
Don't excuse yourself! Black and white is oh so fine. I like the contrast here.
I've taken some similar (in subject matter) shots recently, but with my Holga. Don't you love how water can look in black and white?
The short DOF looks great. Nice composition too.
don't be sorry. red filter?
When converting this to b+w I removed the red channel altogether ( channel mixer settings were something like R:170 G:130 B:-200) and added a bit of lens blur to get more of a toy camera look :)
That bent horizon adds to a slightly bizarre feel. Nice.
niiiice! love it love it love it! i love your b&ws so keep em coming mate!
Excellent cpmosition amd DOF. Black & white is a good choice too.
If you put this shot on ebay I'm sure it would be a big seller!!!
what is thinking? ;)
I love black and white. There's no other for hanging on the wall, which by the way, this one could...
Thanks all. Gabriel, I'm pretty sure he was thinking, "why isn't he giving me food like that other guy?"
Love the blurry sky against the crisp lake. It makes the shot seem more striking and surreal. Well done.
Sometimes I like black and white more than color, this shot is beautiful, no need for apologies. And thanks for your nice comment, Miles!
Miles: I don't mind this at all :) I like the selective focus as well.. I know how you feel.. i've been in Toronto for the past 3 days and I haven't shot any decent shots like I was planning.. it's just too damn cold to walk around!
Why apologizing for a lovely shot like that? This shot shows how life is right now - and in a perfect way...
Great shot Miles. You're black and whites are always stunning. Come to think of it, so are your colour ones.
Miles, I dont have to say thats a great shot. But if you want me to ... I dont mind saying that :)
the blur makes it man, shot
Very cool shot.
That's a fantastic shot. I sympathize with the "no color" issue. It's just too gray these days :P
Great framing, with this large space of water. It's wonderful. Congrats
Very cool shot! Bizarre dof in this one.
Love your B&Ws! this one is awesome!
great shot miles. great focus and strong greyscale values. very nice.
Wow, fantastic! I love how the swan stands out against the dark background. This is a wonderfully elegant and dramatic photo.
Great composition and framing.
wonderful image Miles
The white swan really looks good on the dark water. Suspended between the two darkness of the black water and hanging storm
I feel so peaceful.
who said ominous was a bad thing? I like the clouds brooding on the horizon, they look good OOF.
