Black and white this week

It is interesting that both my digital photography and design class are dealing with black and white this week.  While I don’t do a whole lot with black and white photography, I do enjoy it.  Here is one of my images from this week:

ISO 1000 50mm 0ev f/3.2 1/160

Some of you that read the exif data I include might wonder why I used an ISO of 1000 and the answer is simple.  I forgot to change it when I was setting up for these photos.  I did use a bracketed exposure for this image and then used Photomatix to edit.

What was most interesting to me in making this image is that the color version showed the frost on the leaves, while in black and white you pretty much can’t tell it’s there.
