playing practicing how to do black & white.
Darwin, CA. which is in the mountains west of Death Valley
I stumbled upon a different technique which may work better for buildings, or not.
It is not sepia although it does look like it.
The sand dunes of Death Valley
Diner in Cut Bank Montana
Red Rock Canyon, CA.
Here is that same in a different way I stumbled upon which may not be so good for landscape.
Trying a bird.

What I am slowly getting into my head that there are numerous different ways to go about this. Also, the more you do the more confused you get. Clouds make it for the sky. No clouds, and it is empty looking. I like how the egret came out so white birds look good in B&W. I think like all photos, if what I had to work with was shot in the early morning or late in the day, they would be better. Most importantly I feel I've made some progress. Thanks for putting up with me and my homework. This weekend I am going to try something new for me. I am hoping it will work and yet not be too much work in the process. We'll see.
