Wow Kiefer - awesome photos!! I really like the Holy Cross and Tigiwon Road pictures.

I took this photo on Columbia that weekend we were there; using the 'Color Accent' mode on my camera, I chose red so everything in the photo that has red shows up red, and the rest shows up black-and-white. Not completely B & W, but close!

Nice shots, Kiefer and Caroline! I'm no photographer, my black and white capabilities come from the B+W feature on Photobucket, but here are a few of my favorites:

Kiefer, great idea. And some gorgeous shots, man. I really like the Creed aspens shot.

All - some beautiful B&W's. Let's not be afraid to post some monotones and sepias, too!

=D> Yes, great thread idea, Kiefer. I like your photos too. I've always loved "Aspens along Tigiwon Road" - remember seeing it awhile back - nice to see it again.

And even though I'm sort of a camera geek, I didn't know a tool called Color Accent mode even existed on camera. That is really cool. Nice pic, Caroline.

And Benners, Jon - enjoyed the pics.

Black and white - I love how it exposes the essence of form.

Black and white is something I just recently (this winter) began to really dive deep into. I quickly learned black and white is not easy. I took a stroll up South Boulder peak a few weeks ago. A snowstorm had just passed. And I took some pics that converted pretty good into black and white.

I have two words to describe those shots by Keifer: "Keifer Adams"

Wow, nice. the rest as well. Love those skis. I'll take a look at my own favorites, but can't touch what has already been posted.

This thread got me inspired to play around tonight with some other images. Hope no one minds something a bit different.

Nazca Lines - Peru (not much color here anyway but b&w and boosting the contrast brings out the lines)
