This shot was taken at Point Reyes National Seashore with my Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye lens.

Coverted to B&W using desaturation in PS7.

Now there's a different look. Good job of making the ordinary, extraordinary. I can't decide whether I like the use of the fisheye lens here or not - I think I do. :-) I think the B/W works very well with the tonal contrasts. Cool shot.

I like the idea, the composition and the effect created by the fisheye. I think the fence would benefit from more texture. I don;t know how you de-saturated it but you might want to try alternative techniques to convert to B&W (channel mixer or using multiple desaturation layers) to see if you can get a better B&W effect. I also like to experiment with a duotone or a mild tint to see whether it looks better than harsh B&W.

Good luck

Those fisheye lenses always leave such a weird look. I'd agree with lowlight in that it needs more contrast. It is definitely a "desaturated" photo. Composition is very interesting.

i like the composition. i think you need more contrast, but i'm always partial to b&w with very crisp whites and blacks too. good luck in the contest!!!

Makes me feel like a dog traped unable to get out or look over the fence. I dont know if thats something your in the lines of but thats what I get the feeling of looking at it. The black and white is good has some good overall tones but little dodge and burn might enhance the individual bars or wood posts and give them some depth or 3 dimensional feel. Just a thought. Overall a good image. Keep up the good work and good luck with the contest.
