These are all very beautiful... I think my favourites are the first two. The quirky croquet gear & the haunting Joshua Tree are so different, but I love them both :)

@xerox-kitty: The moment I saw the croquet set, I knew it was going to be an interesting photo. I took a ton of pictures at Joshua Tree, but that is by far my favorite shot.

@notoriousbcb: very nice, I used to be a B&W photo technician for a few years and really came to love the medium. Rock of Cashel definitely produced some stunning results.

Are you shooting digital and desaturating or actually using B&W film? The fact that I can't tell on many of these is a good sign if it's digital. Very clean level balance across the shades.

@tonis: Black and white is definitely my favorite. I am shooting digital and then desaturating. The Rock of Cashel was definitely inspiring.

What would make these pictures great...is if you added some color into them. Have one thing stick out with color...and then the rest of the picture be black and white.

@Vitality: Great minds think alike. I actually have another series of pics that I haven't posted yet, where I do just that.

Great stuff man. Nice, very nice! I especially like the Cliffs of Moher shots! In part due to the subject, but all your shots have great technical values, nice compositions!  
 
Thank you for sharing.
