    to much contrast IMO.. you've lost any and all shadow detail... a few of them are underexposed as well.

    I don't mind that the overall picture is dark, but I would lighten up the shadow areas some.

    I don't mean to throw back any criticism, but aren't black and white photos supposed to have more contrast and less shadow detail than colour photos?

    I like 1 and 5 as is. Reminds me of night fishing. When you are walking to and from your car you got your flash light on the path and you look to the side and that's what you see. Some lights reflecting off of water and just pitch dark silhouette of grass. I can even hear bugs and frogs when I look at 1 and 5, brings back memories so well. :bigok:
