Great series, I especially like the B/W conversion you have going here, it's very rich and dark, love the tones.

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...

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

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.

thanks again!!!

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
