Comin' In B&W

Continuing my brief hiatus from flower photographs, I went back and did some B&W conversions from our Sumpter train trip last October.

SABBATICAL - For personal reasons, I am taking a sabbatical from Aminus 3, effective immediately. I have photographs in the system to post through March 18. I wish you joy in your personal and photographic journeys.

NIKON D700 1/60 second F/8.0 ISO 200 85 mm (35mm equiv.)

Wherever you are, Jack...I love the narrow vertical shapes here and the contrast between the
metals and details of the train versus the soft flowing puff of the steam !!

I love this wonderful photograph! Impressive! A perfect steam engine powerful moves. The splendid smoke rises into the sky for sure! But in addition to a dense smoke is spread on both sides of the machine! A perfect diagonal rails with vanishing points perfectly drawn. The W/B a delight! A perfect image for Sunday dear friend! Thanks and many kisses Jack!

wonderful B&W conversion I to like the contrast of the solid perhaps harshness of the metal and the puffy clouds of smoke billowing from the train, I feel taken back in time viewing this

This is truly spectacular Jack! Not only the composition, the detail and clarity, the movement, but the setting too. Great use of contrast and a dynamite subject matter!

This is great in black and white and it makes one think it is a very old photograph. The smooth sky and steam against the coarseness of the ground is so effective.
