    A few from chilly Zurich

    Zurich's got a nice small city centre to walk around - when it's cold, it's bitterly cold though! Early morning walkabouts with a tripod when it's -19 degrees are a bit of a shock after Middle Eastern warmth!

    Thanks Mark - I always convert form a colour RAW file. Far more data available than in camera b&w

    Cool, thank you, its nice to see someone shooting primarily in b+w, dont know how but sometimes it just seems to convey more feeling than colour, i have looked at a lot of yours and they always seem to have a good depth in the contrast, thanks for sharing them.

    I really like them all. Tough to pick a favourite.

    I think your B&W processing is fantastic. Care to elaborate a bit on your workflow?

    Very enjoyable set Phil. Images 2 and 3 in particular have excellent composition and processing IMO.

    Thanks Mark. I'm always shooting in colour and converting, so I've got colour and black and white versions of everything. Not everything works in B&W though, but on this forum I'm posting mainly in black and white.

    Thanks Gretchen - snow's a challenge to expose for if you're not used to it, which I'm definitely not!

    Thanks Tommy. I've got a little bit covered on my blog on my website, which needs some more processing details when I have time.

    Thanks Dave

    It was particularly cold and crisp for #2, which I think comes through in the processing. My brother-in-law and his wife and daughter live in Zurich and I've got more into street photography and candids since my last visit so I'll be looking at the place and people with fresh eyes next time I visit.
