    Just back from spending Christmas in England and then the last two weeks in Fuerteventura charging up batteries for the rest of the winter. It's one of the Canary Islands and the nearest to Africa - 97km. Photos taken not long after sunrise while waiting for my flight to Madrid. The smearing on the lower half of the second is due to a rain streaked window.

    The (relatively) modern plane and the grainy b/w don't go together IMHO.

    Pic #2
    Nicely portrays the "freedom of flight"

    On the other hand, that first pics looks like the ISO was set arguably high, but in black and white it gives it a gritty tone that I would assume looks more 'artistic' or presentable than the color version. Two good pictures.

    Most anything 3200 and beyond with my camera ends up getting the B&W treatment.

    ISO was 400 on both but I was using the 'Grainy B/W Art Filter'. I wanted high contrast and a grainy image because the windows were streaked with rain and quite dirty.

    Although I usually don't like pictures with "art" filters, pic one has an interesting beauty about it that I can't place my finger on but I really appreciate.
    I wonder what it would look like if you cropped the left so that the roof isn't there anymore.

    I did in fact make a crop to eliminate the roof on the left and it cleaned up the image a bit , but on uploading I inadvertently used an earlier image and it wasn't worth the hassle to try to remedy it.
