Wayne's photos are extraordinary - amazing. Having spent a lot of time photographing underwater, I am really impressed.

But Mike - Hansen's disease settlement?! It was a leper colony - one of the problems with political correctness is that euphemising the forced removal of people with this disease removesw wider understanding that these people were banished from regular society for having a disease to which 95% of the population is naturally immune. Don't awful things deserve to retain awful labels?

Gourgeus photography!!!

Now this is a print offer I could get behind. Pleeeeeeeeze.

Voltz,
I just wrote what Wayne had in his press release, as I noted in the sig....

Pretty amazing how a phenomenal (B&W) photograph excels underwater for much the same reasons it does on dry land.

Great photography.

I keep noticing on this site and others how much more acceptable noise is in black and white than it is in color. (Not only to me, but based on the lack of comments on it, acceptable to others as well.)

Terrific photos, particularly the divers with the subtle spotlighting.

I keep noticing on this site and others how much more acceptable noise is in black and white than it is in color.

I've often found that this is a useful thing when poor lighting conditions lead me to use high ISOs and after-processing to bring the images out. In color, the noise is obnoxious; in black and white, it becomes an appealing graininess.

Levin's images are simply amazing. I wish I was even half as good on land.

Agree with Rana. In black and white photography "noise" or "grain" becomes an aesthetically pleasing addition to the photographs. It is very much a distraction in color photography where the end goal is often sharp images and accurate color representation.

Of course, as in any other art form, this is dependent on the artist and the viewer.
