    B+W ..again

    Hi all..i'm back with another b&w image..not sure where to put it..think we need a abstract and still life thread? Please guys..go crazy ..njoy yourselves with the c+c...i need it!! I tried b&w bfor and i started laying around with curves on this one..seems to come out a bit more. What do u think of compostion? should i maybe go in a bit more? Any advice would be great!!

    Have a nice day

    In terms of the post processing, including B & W conversion, I think you've done a very good job on this. Tones and textures have been well brought out.

    I'm not sure about the composition. I certainly wouldn't see it as an abstract image. It's much too recognisable and 'real'. I see the primary point of interest as being the wheel ... and I think it's too much in the centre of the frame. What i wonder is wehy we need to see so much wall on the left, particularly as we've got a corner of the wall in the picture and I think that vertical is quite distracting. What about a crop - pretty close in to the outside edge of the tyre so that you take that wall corner out of the picture altogether?

    Hi Donald, took your advice and i see exactly what u mean..looks much better without the corner and now that its cropped a little more, the wheel sort of falls more to the middle to lower left, instead of it all been in the middle. Let me know what u think. This image helped me out alot with black and white because of its textures, i see the more texture u have the more theimage responds to the eye in B&W?

    Thanks again for the advice

    I think that is a much better composition. We don't have any distractions now.
