San Geronimo Church, Taos Pueblo.

I like the way the shadow of the cross seems to stand out more in black and white.

Question for everyone:

There seems to be two ways to upload photo content. One loads an image that has to be clicked on to see the whole frame, the other loads with the page in its entirety. Mine always have to be clicked on.

How do you get them in the other way which also seems to result in much larger and still crisp image?

Thanks.

Thanks for putting this up Kiefer! I don't usually do black and white but this gave me an opportunity to mess with some of my shots. A few have already been posted elsewhere on the site but I like the BnW flavor...

There are some amazing photos being posted here!

I have to say though, my favorite is still the first one posted by Kiefer.
