    G'day folks.

    Took a walk around Homebush yesterday arvo to try some contrasty B/W shots of the funky geometries of ANZ stadium. Also been dying to give the big stopper (B+W 110) a go as well as the weather was pretty crap lately in Sydney.

    I might do a project along these lines so looking for some constructive criticisms and tips on composition and B/W conversion techniques :)

    All were shot with a tamron 17-50 2.8, 60D and the 10 stop filter at 60-70s at f10 and iso 100 during sunset. I have to say I did struggle at 17mm and would have loved to have something wider.

    The first one is great, love the contrast between the soft silky sky and the building.

    I like em especially No #1

    Reminds me though that I need to head out with my Big Stopper for some shooting. It took so long to arrive and when it did I had some other projects that I was doing.

    I really like the "industrial" look of #1, the lines and contrast are great :)

    Both #1 and #3 are clean which is the reason people like them

    #2 has that structure heading off to the right cropped off and that tree bottom right

    #4 has the mess of trees down the bottom left

    sometimes really wide angle doen't help - food for thought ;)

    Cheers Squeezer. Good points there :thumbup:

    Most of the shots were at 20-30mm roughly. Should have done something similar to get the trees out the frame.

    Think I was just being lazy and tried not to move around as much as i should have :o True though, wide wouldn't have helped as much in retrospect.

    I know where you live.......:Pirate:
