Marthe and Frances both chose Marthe's night-time shot. As Frances said, a dramatic, stunning picture. It reminded her of the day of the triffids. The way the light was captured was so effective.
photography
Bob and Martin both chose Martin's classic black and white composition of the Forth railway bridge. Bob said it didn't need colour, telling its own story in black and white. An excellent composition, with the angle of the bridge and the reflections.

Agreement again between newcomer Maryanne and Marthe. This was Maryanne's conversion from colour which she said reminded her of the 40s. Marthe thought the picture had strong form which converted well to black and white.

Neil and Morag both chose Neil's picture of Bonaly Tower, taken from an unusual viewpoint. Morag admired the way the house stands out from the trees. Again - strong contrast works well in this format.

Ruth thought this picture of Morag's was intriguing. Is it winter or spring?
photography
Morag herself chose this picture of shadows beneath the washing line. She had taken a lot of care in getting the shadows positioned just right for best effect.

Athol and Ruth both chose Ruth's conversion of her colour picture of cemetary gates.

Irene liked Ruth's photo of her cat, loving the sense of texture, the hairs on the ears. She also felt the angle allowed her to think the cat looked thoughtful or a little sad, but maybe that's because it's in black and white. She thought it a nicely set photo.

Sandra chose her own picture of an african mask. She liked the white background and the different tones.
photography
Sonia chose Sandra's conversion from colour of a picture of Castle Wynd. It was taken on a bright, sunny day ensuring the contrast was strong. She liked the patterns made by the shadows on the steps.
