I m in a black and white mode i must say, been shooting a few images and just going with the in black and white. I was walking about when i spotted this, i though it was amazing, it looked beatiful. So i shot it from various angles just be sure i got a nice shot. Which i did, so i tried to combine them into two here are the results:

hey alex...now this is a simple/stupid question, coming from a beginner..but when shooting in B&W, can you do it on your DSLR or do you do it in your photoshop program?

It's not a stupid question, and although I don't want to answer on Alex's behalf, this is what I've found.

It's better to always take colour images in camera. You then have the option of going monochrome with editing. If you take only monochrome in camera then you will not have the option of going back to colour later on.

Interesting image(s), Alex. I like the subject of the taps, but what's disconcerting is the left side of the image. The angle is disorientating and I would say the slant is too much for me. Perhaps the more conventional 45 degrees might work better? For that reason it's not one for me.

I agree with you there Ed, I too think its much better to shoot color, even if you don't like it in color, because maybe in future you'll find that you could have used an element of that photo in a logo your designing or for something else.

I believe alex uses the last technique the video he posted on his blog. And its also the same one I do, it takes about 1 or two minutes in photoshop, I don't use the whole thing. The guy in the video does a bit od dodging and burning which I typically skip.

I like it alex,
Jake
