So this is my first venture into the dark arts of Black and White photography. I must say when I looked at it to start I thought it to be an easy and forgiving approach. That is until I actually attempted to do one. I quickly came to realize that every little adjustment in this approach can completely destroy a vision and the image composition as a whole.

Since my first attempts at it I have read some, played some and really started to appreciate this form of photography and the subtleness of actually creating a good image that covey’s something. This is really the first B&W piece I have been willing to publish finally. Now I'm not sure if that is because I have actually gotten better or If I just think I have :)

Any insight or advice from others in this regard will be well received.
