Great series, I especially like the B/W conversion you have going here, it's very rich and dark, love the tones.
12th of October 2006 (Thu), 22:02
Wow they are all very nice conversions!! The second one is my least favorite (i wish there was more dof in it) while i think the last one is perfect!

Very nice work! #3 is fantastic with all the lines. First and second last are really good, too...

the last shot gives a sense of history and usage

Lovely shots! I think they work great together. They also work very well in B&W.

Nice work, they are all good, well done.

Great series, number 3 is my favourite.

Great stuff ... you never fail to pull some great shots out of your hat ;-)

I don't normally like things with straight lines, but #3 blew me away! It's great!

wow... thanks *everyone* for all of the great comments!!!
i can answer a few of the questions:
i do all of my mono conversions in Aperture. it's quite easy to blend red, green, and blue channels to get the results desired. i also adjust the luminance 'thing' (it's Aperture's version of curves) to get the tone as desired.
the stripes are actually two different colour sets - alternating green/white, and orange/white. the one in the foreground on the right is green/white.
the round things are bamboo ladles. they're used as part of a hand washing ritual before entering a shrine. use the right hand to wash the left, then left to rinse the right. then sip the water and return the ladle.

great shots.... is it just me or does B&W make everything look clean???

I love number 3 - the torii at Odaiba. I took a shot of those with my cameraphone one time after work (I work near there) and keep meaning to go back with a better camera. You've inspired me to do it now :D

Nice series, great B&W conversion.
