    Nice, clean, crisp b&w images so you're off to a very good start. I like the first one for its good tonal range. The 2nd one is good, too but is a bit too grey for my taste. Are you new to M43 or just the forum? Either way, welcome! :smile:

    Very nice. I prefer the second although there could probably be a bit more contrast/deeper blacks. I would prefer a bit more detail in the first. :cool:

    Nice job on the last one. I see photos shot upwards all the time that end up giving people tons of extra weight (especially around the chin). This works! Would have been even cooler if the lightpost had fully been in frame, but moving large physical objects is a pain...

    thanks for the input. should I crop this pic to remove the light and the top of the building?

    Personally, I really like the top of the building being in the shot. Maybe see what bringing in the left (and to a degree, the right) does? Leave the lamppost in the window reflection, but take out the partial? Play with it, and see what jumps out at you. It is a great shot as is, just thinking about a couple of other takes. I personally don't worry about standard dimensional formats (4x3, 3x2, 16x9, etc), but I also rarely print.

    I started playing around with B&W as well. I have processed them in the camera but a little PP also produces good results. Sometimes the B&W really tells the story better than the colors...

    Here is an old garage, very near downtown Atlanta and it so reminded me of the garages of the '60s & '70s..
