Darrell,

The use of B&W is a kind of new twist on your cacti images. Very nice.

I haven't seen many pics taken with the Baby at f8!

Still get some good effects there. I particularly like 1, 3, and 5.

Thanks everyone. I have shot the scene in #2 several times in color but never in black & white. In the late afternoon, all those cacti are backlit and create an interesting effect. Since I was using 400 speed film, I had to go to f8 and 1/2000 second on my Nikon N6000 to prevent overexposure.
