I figured, rather than jack someone else's thread, I'd post some pics of my own.  I enjoyed the nature of Morocco more than even the old cities.

Thanks for sharing. I really like all of the pictures. The third one reminds me again to finally invest in some good gradient filters as wide angle and polarizers don't mix very well  Wink

Thanks for the comment.

For some reason, I find myself often not minding the "dark spots" caused by polarizers + WA lenses, but I guess I must be the minority, since everybody tells me to stop LOL.  I did have a Cokin-Z and a few GNDs (which I used later this day to shoot the sunset), but didn't use em.

No, thank YOU for posting these pics. I took it as an incentive. Went shopping after work and now I own a Cokin filter system  Grin

Thanks everybody for your comments.

I'll continue to update my set on Flickr as I develop and scan all my film shots.  A few more:

Good shooting, Head. But there's a reason street shots often are stronger in B&W than in color.

Hey Russ, thanks for the critique/suggestion.

I do agree that street is often better in B&W, which gives them the raw feeling of the street.  For this reason, I often SilverEfex' my digital street photos.  In fact, these days I'd B&W convert almost all my digital street.

There are several reasons why these shots are in color.

1. These are film, and I consciously chose to shoot color reversals.  And, as a kind of self-imposed rule, I try to do minimum post with my film shots; b&w conversion of a color reversal shot would only happen in very extreme situations, such as when, due to bad expired film and/or a mistake in the developing, there's a terrible color shift that is not fixable.

2. The reason why I chose to shoot color reversal a lot on this trip (although I did bring some B&W both 120 and 4x5) is because I wanted to capture the different colors of Morocco; combinations of colors are often country/culture specific, and I find that very intriguing.

3. And while I would agree that the metalsmith shot is, purely from an aesthetic POV, "better" in B&W as how you converted it, I must respectfully disagree that B&W is better for the second shot of the pinhole photographer. I find, if I may say so myself, the salmon-pink walls of this narrow street as captured by Provia 100F contrasted by the blacks lines, white sky, and colorful tin-can pinhole camera (though, admittedly, it's underexposed) to be very pleasing, and still prefer the color version over the B&W conversion :-)

Hi, Head. I like the color version of the pinhole guy too. In fact, after looking at both versions for a while I'm inclined to agree with you about him. The reason I went for B&W with the metalsmith is that it's very strong graphically, but the graphics sort of get swallowed up by the color.

I am obsessively into the graphic and black & white.  But I am flexible and I really like the colour in these and feel that it provides a constructive counterpoint to the motif.

With regard to the last frame - this is a typical colour reversal rendering which we never see from digital shooters.

Aaah, who cares?  I hate digital.

Cheers,

Walter

I made my Morocco shots into a Blurb book (my very first one); I made it so that you can check out all the images in full screen :-)  Please have a look:

Thanks!! By the first one, do you mean the cover shot?  If so, thanks; I really liked that one (hence, the cover shot).  I also entered that one into the first contest ever for me, the Nat. Geo. traveling photo contest (or whatever the heck).
