To me, the B&W; photos require more use of my imagination there's a level of intimacy I have to reach within for that's different than of those in color. Hard to explain but easy to feel. ;-)

Cute factor is through the roof on this shot.

    B&W; enhances the subject of the photo, it adds to the mysticism and emotions of the photo especially when people and animals are the subject. I found for certain themes such as nature and seasonal, color is the best. For people and animals or to capture the essence of a scenery shot, B&W; is the best way to go.

    I think this is a prime example of one to color with the imagination, I've already started.

    I'm a real FAN of BW photography ..
    in fact .. have done this for many a decade ..
    (and still have my own Parents' cameras .. from back in the 1940s .. 1930s .. they STILL work!)

    I load my own film into reusable canisters ..
    I develop my own filmstrips/negatives ..
    I've also developed my own prints as well ..
    (and have exhibited them too)

    I still can and do teach others how to develop BW Film ..
    mix the chemicals myself ..
    (It is easy once you master the times for iso speeds .. and film brand/chems)
    I do now have to have help for focusing (which I can't do)
    but I still know how to mix the chemicals for wet-developed prints as well ..

    There's a vibrance .. a tonal quality .. a sense of "color" that those shades of light and dark .. all the variations on the greys bring out that Color can't copy at all ..
    it is a living memory ..
    a connection with the Wonders of the PAST ..

    something that FEW know how to do nowadays ..

    This is wonderful! I love that fact that their cameras still work! Thanks to movies, I had wanted to develop my own film in a dark room, it all adds up (in my opinion) more appreciation of the work done.

    ONCE you learn how to mix the chemicals ..
    and how to time your actions between the trays ..
    it really is EASY to learn how to manage a Developer ..
    and expose your film to form a print ..

    (I teach this to others .. the darkroom is familiar indeed to me .. )

    Needless to say .. the sighted are amazed always .. and still!
    that I, blind .. navigate the darkroom with confidence ..
    it is when they see me outside the darkroom and see my cane ..
    that they just get shocked ....

    I agree about imagination and intimacy about B&W; pictures and movies. There is a Bette Davis movie that you just know she is in a red dress, in a b&w; movie!

    Yes, exactly. I look at them and I can imagine that it's this color or that and I enjoy "coloring" them. You're probably right, it's probably red ;-)

    I love b & w photos. And the ones with a touch of color are pretty cool too. I also like seeing portraits done in the old sepia colors.

    I like to think changing my amateur level pics to b&w; makes them look more artistic...like a someone who knew what they were doing took them.

    Hmm that's interesting, I wonder if it's so. Do you look at the work of other amateur's and if so, notice more of a "they know what they're doing" thought, if it's b&w;?

    I was more or less kidding. People say I can take a decent pic, but my camera does all the work for me. I don't know anything about apertures or much about lighting or anything.

    I wish I had the time and money to take a photography class. I have learned a little here and there about photo editing on gimp the last few years. It does a real nice job of making a color pic black and white.

    I have used PSP quite a bit in the past and I loved it. I did dabble, very little, in gimp back then. Have you checked for online boards or groups? My friend is a photographer and I know she belongs to a few online boards centered around it, and she's all self taught. She is now at the point where she does photo shoots for people and/or sells prints of her work.

    That's pretty cool. Youtube is a great resource for how to walkthroughs, but quite honestly, some of the gimp tools are still over my head.

    Is there something specific about gimp that it's the only program that can be used?

    Well it's free and I've only recently started doing more than cropping, adjusting light and etc. Do you have a recommendation?

    No, I'm sorry I don't. Maybe a search for free photo editing programs? Only thing I can think of....
