"Sonder's Hour" - The Weekend in Black & White


I have been quite attracted to a particular challenge (do I really need one more?) and have hesitated to participate as I am quite intimidated... but that is not the way to improve.  So, here is my first entry linked to "The Weekend in Black & White".   Does anyone have a favorite black & white photography book?  A "how to" of sorts to finesse and refine this art?

I call this time of day at the barn "Sonder's Hour" as she seems to glow as the afternoon sun starts its daily decent.  This is quite striking in color, but I find it stunning, more  personal in b&w.

Wonderful job with this beautiful horse! I will have to think on the book for a while. None springs to mind at this point.

This is a wonderful photograph Margaret!
I can truly recommend "Black and White Digital Photography," by Chris Bucher. I read it cover to cover a few months ago, and really learned a lot.

Welcome! Black and white can be so rewarding - placing the emphasis on light. Your glow shows well.
