B&W is a lot more touchy to work with in digital than it was in film

I've definitely noticed this.... I used to shoot B&W film in a high school course i was in. But again, a black and white in your hand is different from a black and white on an LCD. I'd like to try editing on a Plasma to see what's what.

Yes, #2 for the BW darker feel win. Maybe more grain? Up to you though.

Too much time on your hands?

Why so many? Was that taken at night or something that would cause you to stack?

I'm thinking that to cover the subject with around a 50mm lens, from that perspective would take, at most, 6-images. What gives?

I'll go look at the original size.

Received my OM-EOS adapter today. Here's one of my first shots through the Olympus Zuiko 100mm f/2.8 on my 5d2:

Nice portrait with good detail and sweet bokeh. How's the detail at 100% vs. your Canon lens?

Thanks, Dave. The lens is very sharp when I'm able to nail the focus. I'm still getting used to focusing manually. When I get home, I'll see if I can post a 100% crop.

Yeah, I've toyed with getting a Zeiss MF wide-angle lens, but then I start thinking about our viewing screen not being designed for MF and remember the trouble I have when I try to override the AF and I decide not to go that route. If I already owned the lenses, it'd be a different matter.

Dunno why I put 29! - just counted them and there are only 12!! Was taken during the day but liked it better in BandW - may have another go at a colour version sometime.

it's dark? what do you mean?

that's a damn good question though... I really have no idea. Basically, in the middle of a field in the boondocks. I drove by it going pretty fast (since it was some nicely-paved rural road), and as soon as I saw it, I slammed on my brakes and stopped to take a photo.

the exposure seems very low.

nice find however. I see neat stuff once in a while, but I just don't stop to take closer looks, and i hate myself for it. I always feel like i have to be somewhere, when i really don't.

hmm... weird. I wonder if it's because my new laptop has a much brighter screen now?

any other recently edited photos for comparison sake? might be a good way to tell if it's the brightness of your screen
