Garry,
The image conveys the desolation so perfectly. The tinge of color is a nice touch.

This was taken yesterday at my local beach. Thank you for commenting on my images, apologies for not commenting on anyone else, but still trying to work out where I comment on individual images....

Nice perspective. Something seemingly ordinary came to life.
If you go to individual thread, it is at the end of page you will

Looking at Henry's web site and the beautiful images of his trip to India brought back memories of my last trip there. I was prompted to look through my images again and to process a couple of them in mono. As you can see they are of the same man but in different poses.

I am hoping to go back later this year as it is a fascinating country.

Great shots Ossie and JB. The second one is my favorite Ossie, while I liked both of them.

Everyone knows that for the best Black & White photography you should use a lens that is designed for only B&W. In 2012 I bought a special Panasonic Lumix 20mm f1.7 B&W lens for use on my Olympus m4/3 cameras. You mount the lens and the special B&W optics allow only B&W light through to be recorded by the sensor. And those B&W photos can be amazing! So different than using your run of the mill, pedestrian Leica, Nikon, Zeiss, Canon, etc. lenses that allow color to pass through. Once you've used a B&W lens you just can't go back to shooting B&W with a color lens! Anyway, I recommend that if you take B&W photos you get a very exclusive, specially designed for B&W lens with the special B&W glass! Simply stunning!

I got the Panasonic Lumix 20mm f1.7 Special Limited Edition B&W version with the rare, exquisite glass elements which only allow black and white and shades of gray light to pass through. The monochrome image has a divine purity unsullied by colored light rays which can reduce the monochrome micro-contrast, cause busy bokeh, and in some cases (depending on tidal forces) can be a catalyst for severe diarrhea in the user. Trust me, when you are out and about in places where toilets are few and far between and taking B&W photos you just don't want sudden onset explosive diarrhea. Actually, even when not taking B&W photos. Anyway, soon after purchasing this Special Limited Edition B&W lens in 2012 it was discontinued. The value, of course, has skyrocketed so I expect to have it buried with me when I die. It's in my will. I wrapped a piece of duct tape around the barrel so that, hopefully, no one will notice it and mug me. Here in Japan that would normally be almost an impossible event, but for this lens some people are desperate, even in Japan.

Nice shots Henry. Did they really made B&W only lenses? I did not know that.
