Love for b&w...

I love Black and White photography, well...
Full black and white or with a nice toning or some selective colors.

Beneath is shot at Burger's Bush.
I also made black and white presets in my Nikon D90.
Not monochrome but edited the preset 'standard' with black and white toning and color filters.
the idea is to make the picture in the camera with less post processing.
Well, sometimes that's enough indeed but post processing a bit more makes the pictures al lot better in my opinion, mostly...haha

The next picture is taken with my new Sigma 15-30. First time out on the streets. I like the lens. I shot the picture with the b&w toning and red filter. Yes it needed more post processing, playing with the slides in CaptureNX.

Two shots taken with the Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 F-Mount.
The Tulip is straight out of the camera.
The Buddha has seen a bit of post processing.
I love the Kiron!

Yep The Kiron.
Happy me! At a great price point...gonna have a lot of fun in springtime with the flowers and the bees. But seems to be an allrounder also.

Macro thoughts...

I still very in love with the Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 macro.
Or am i in love with macro and is the Kiron a very good instrument?
Almost got a good Kiron 105, but seller had a small accident with it the day i was gonna visit him, he dropped sad....
So i am thinking, what to do and have been reading lots, again.
If i cannot get a good Kiron i will go for the Tokina 100mm. Why?
Well the Nikon 105 vr, well it's very expensive atm.
I have a Tokina 11-16 and really love the build quality and image quality, so Tokina can replace Nikkor/Nikon for me. 

So.....i have the time, hopefully one of the 2 will be available, second hand no problem for me.

About the above photo's.
Number 1: Little work on the levels, but very little.
Number 2: No post processing, SOOC.
