    That's a very nice black & white picture w_parietti22. Neither my wife or I recognize that restaurant. Where on Cape Cod, Massachusetts is it located?

    Nice Post

    I like this thread. Here is one I took of a cab in NY, and one of a building in downtown Shreveport, LA. The other is just for kicks. My friend and I held up vaccum accessories and flash lights. I drew the light sabers in on photoshop.

    Enjoy

    Im using a Canon PowerShot SD110. Very simple camera. Im just using it until I can afford a $600 camera :D. Then in iPhoto I use the B & W funtion and add a little contrast... It works for now.

    PS- That camera has been replaced by the PowerShot SD200

    Do you recall where that building was located at in Shreveport? I was just down there last week.

    If you go back, try to find this building! I believe it was just south of downtown.

    Taxis are characterized by their bright yellow color. By taking a black and white photograph of a taxi, you've essentially taken away its essence.

    This is one of my few and favorites. Taken on an island off Thailand. The sun reflected a lot off the sand and my darks don't blend in to well. I've played a little in Photoshop trying to improve it. If anyone has any recommendations please let me know.

    Very nice picture

    I redid the picture in Elements:

    What do you think? I basically added some more contrast.

    Looks better to know. I knew something could be done to it, I'm just enough of a photo editor to know what to do.

    Working in digital can be great. The following shots were done with my Canon Rebel XT to my recent trip to SF. I had the JPEGs in B&W and the RAW was there for color.

    I like the flexibility to decide later what works best for the image.


    I have about 5 more ready to share if there is interest.
