Hello there ! 1

I have to admit this picture was not taken with the intention of making it black & white but I’ve been inspired to create a few black & white posts over the last few days having seen some wonderful examples in other blogs around the web.

I was taking pictures of a small church in Codecote, Hertfordshire and as I got close to the fence I got an inquiring nose pushed towards the 10-24mm lens I had fitted to me camera. I turned the camera on the sheep and took a couple of shots of him.

It was quite a dull day in early January 2012 so this picture was taken at a low 1/30th at iso200, but because ite was such a wide angle shot (10mm) I could successfully hand hold at that speed. The post processing was in Lightroom where I converted to black & white and set the contrast a bit higher.

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    Whether intended or not this capture is great! I really like it a lot. Very well done! 😀

  2. Black and white pictures so often seem to have a certain extra depth to them, I love the detail in this one, it’s like being right there

    Sometimes the unintended are the best of the bunch. You have wonderful variety in your photos.

    1. Thanks you very much for saying so.

  4. I love this ‘portrait’ 🙂 You get quite a different feel from black and white, I like to convert some of my photos too.

    1. Thank you – Yes it makes quite a difference doesn’t it
