Here are more from a recent 2 day exploration of old and abandoned places. Midday harsh light and this subject matter often SCREAMS black and white to me. So I will shoot with that in mind. One day I hope to get an IR converted camera for such scenes.

Hope you enjoy!

This is a very nice set Scott!
Looks great in BW. They are all strong on their own. If I had to pick one, it would be the 4th.
Best,
Fred

Lovely set and great processing. You did a great job hiding the fact that the light was bad. If you feel like it I would like to get some idea of how you did your processing. Brian

Hey Scott,

Super cool shots here, the B&W is perfect for them. #2 and 3 are my favorites of these.

Great shots, the B+W is perfect for the time of day and look...I could imagine what 2 and 4 would be like in infrared

Thank you all very much!

Rodney Harvey is a contact on my flickr that has a great collection of black and white abandoned places. One of my favourite photogs of this subject and an inspiration.

Be sure to check out his work. He often uses an IR camera. So want one!

Thank you Brian. With out going into details I like to approach bw conversion as one would shooting bw white film. I never just change the image from colour to grayscale but use either photoshops black and white layer adjustment or nik software silver fx pro with a colour filter.

When shooting BW film you can control the brightness of certain colours via using coloured filters. For example, a red filter will darken your blue skies dramatically while a green filter will lighten your greens. Used this concept when converting my digital colour images makes for a much better BW conversion IMHO. I then process to taste after that.

Great shots that convey a feeling of loneliness and abandonment Scott.
I like then all!

Always a good lesson for me to observe the perspective you take on your subjects and to know when to put something in front of the subject to add value to the image................A most enjoyable set Scott and I love the choice here on B&W for the presentation!

These are awesome, along with your other thread. Wish I had stuff like that to shoot here. Must get out your way sometime.

A real pleasure to view.
