    I liked this, but if I take a picture with more variations in the light, I'll change them out.

    Here is the same picture with auto contrast editing added.

    Ok, here is one that I manually edited.

    Did you take this out of the camera in B&W or use an editing program to change it to B&W? I would like to see more contrast in the photo. It's flat to me. Nothing really black or white. If you have an editing program, try boosting the contrast a little. Don't change it out, just add it. That way you can see the improvement as you go.

    Monnie, I took it in color and then in Paint Shop Pro I changed it to gray scale. I have never used editing programs other than to crop and rotate. This will be out of my comfort zone, but I'll give a try to your suggestion!

    OK, that is better. I like that there is more contrast to the trees. I think the auto contrast has given it a slightly harsh look. I want you to do this. Go in to PSP>Adjust>Hue/Saturation>Hue/Saturation/Lightness. Using the Saturation slider, slide it all the way to the bottom (-100). Experiment with the lightness slider. See if you like the changes the lightness slider makes. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't. Click ok when its like you want it. Now, go to Adjust>Brightness/Contrast>Brightness/Contrast. Fiddle around with the contrast slider until you find something that you like. You can also move the lightness slider to see if you like that, too. I don't want you using the auto corrections this time. Sometimes they do a good job, but usually you can do a much better job yourself. Give it a try and post your results.

    I went out today & took this. I used the B & W setting.

    Canon Rebel XT

    f/5
    ISO - 100
    Focal length - 27mm
    Kit lens (18-55mm)

    "Sunlight on the birdhouse"


    This is one of Abby:

    f/5
    ISO - 100
    Focal length - 27mm
    Kit lens

    "Abby"


    This one I wish had been clear. Two geese flew down on my neighbors pond...when I uploaded I noticed how blurry it was. Boy, I wish I had my Zoom lens on.

    Here is my effort....this is probably a good one to start out with as I am sure there is a lot wrong with it! I think the exposure is all out of whack? Help! I probably shouldn't try to shoot a black dog against this afternoon sky in b/w?

    PS. Jake is SCOWLING at me. I think he didn't want to pose for this picture! Hey, he got a treat for the sit/stay!



    Camera: Sony DSC-H5
    Exposure: 0.003 sec (1/320)
    Aperture: f/2.8
    Focal Length: 6 mm
    ISO Speed: 100
    Exposure Bias: 0/167772160 EV
    Flash: Flash did not fire

    I am posting 4 pictures of the same shot.


    This was taken in color and change using saturation control.


    Same picture using what is called black/white in Microsoft Digital Image Suite.


    Taken in B/W on my camera.


    Original picture

    I am not sure I can tell any difference in the 3 B/W's. What am I looking for?

    I'll be out most of the day. I don't have time right now to evaluate these. I'll be back this evening. Just didn't want anyone to think I was ignoring them.

    KLM - That's not that bad a picture. One think you are going to have to watch is where the sun is located. The biggest problem with this picture is the placement of the sun. It was behind or to the left of the picture. This makes getting proper exposure almost impossible. The B&W isn't bad. There's good contrast. I want you to reshoot this when the sun is behind where you standing now. If that's not possible, turn the dog and wheelbarrow around and shoot from the other direction.

    Lablover - These are pretty good. The reason they look alike is probably because they all use desaturation to convert to B&W. I think you need to up the contrast on the B&W some. There is very little contrast. There's just a lot of gray. I like the composition of the B&W taken in the camera the best. It took me a minute to realize it's taken from a different perspective. I like the way the clump on trees in the background is between the two trees in the foreground in that version.

    Labs4Me - This is a great B&W. Your camera did a great job on this conversion. Not all do. You have lots of the lighter colors in the foreground all the way to the darker colors in the trees. Good job.
