    Terrific, Dez. Were they taken in B&W mode or coverted in PP?
    Love viewing your work!
     
  11. Dez,

    Every one of these shots is spectacular. I'm having trouble making a decision on a favorite!

    As always Dez, I admire your work. I'm a big fan of black and white photography as well. B/W images are sometimes more powerful than color.
     
  13. Thanks Sanford. I shoot in color in convert to b&w.
     
  14. Thank you Glenn!

    Cemetery shot is cool !

    PS... don't you get tired of people telling you everyday that you take nice photos. LOL
     
  16. I agree Mark. Thank you for the comments.
     
  17. I always liked the view of the city in B&W. It show off the texture of the building much better. Nice series of photos.

    As tired as you!...... NOT. It's a credit to NYC. She deserves it :D
     
  19. Thank you Bill!
