Another Icon shot from Hilton Head, but it's a new old boat.
Have to remind myself to use the IPhone, when I'm carrying the DSLR.
The best camera to use, are all of the one's you have with you.

This is conventional post processing in Photoshop, it's a good shot but I just can't decide between the two which one I like.
This is the Bunker Hill covered bridge in North Carolina, one of two left in the state. Just a short distance off of Interstate 40 heading east from Asheville.
Looking for your opinion, between these two post. Which one do you like best.
This one has a slight HDR look, of which I'm not a big fan of HDR, but have used it on certain photos and it works. it gives it a slight grunge look that i kind of like. But I can't decide between the two. See the next post and let me know.
Shooting black and white is all about capturing different tones. Not the colors, this is hard to see at first, but a trick that I've learned to help you in this process is to set your camera's creative mode up to display in black and white, but still capturing the image in color. This way you can see the effects immediately but still have all the data of a color file to get the best results from your post processing. You should always shoot in raw as well. For more detail.
Also try squinting, if you squint, you see less detail in the scene and more of the distinct tones that will become black and whites and grays.
You need to work with dynamic light, too often, dull light gives muddy-looking black and white images.
Just a little tip that I've discovered recently for shooting with your iPhone,
To minimize the effect of camera shake, or in this case Iphone shake, after you focus on your subject. If you hold your finger on camera button until you're ready to take the picture, then just by lifting your finger, it releases the shutter.
This is especially helpful in low light conditions.
