Thanks to your comments under 'Landscapes', I've felt encouraged to try to do a little more with BW. Here are some attempts at converting some more landscapes using SPP (with some touch up in PS).

These are all SD14 18-50mm EX Macro (#1 @18, the others @50mm), ISO 100.

These two were shot with 150mm EX Macro + 2xTC.

Thanks for sharing Jesse!! These are very nice pictures!!! :)

Truly remarkable landscape. There is an abundance of detail and you compose it very well. I am certain that I will be back to this post to take another look!

good luck shooting more landscapes,

Thanks for your kind comments. The snow-blown peaks were shot through my thick, very green (and not very clean) office window. I had just received the 2x converter and was eager to see what it could see.

Thats the view from your office window?!!? I am very envious. That would be very relaxing to have as a view during the day. :)

I don't have a window in my cube, but my office area has a really nice view (if you can see around the generator shack) of a mountain peak...

Yes, well, that's my view at 300mm.

Here's the 18mm view (SD14 18-50mm EX). Still, it is great to be able to watch the weather and light constantly change as they move across Mt. Timpanogas.

Lucky! Lol.
I've got a friend in Reno and her view out the backyard is mountains.
You should move the plants out of the way, the buildings set against the mountain and sky would make it an even more striking picture.
That's a pretty sharp and bright lens!

It's certainly true that the picture would look better without the plants. But when I'm sitting in my office, I prefer to hide the buildings with the plants.

Jesse,

The sky, the clouds, the flat lines of the rooftops holding the pattern of the bldg on the left contrast the bold white lines on the right, with silhouted plants in the foreground. That's tough stuff!! :z02_respekt:

BTW, I look forward to viewing all the white caps that you will post! :)

good luck with your pictures,

Robert
