This month’s prompt was “Black & White” and the challenge was to post an image (or images) in color and then the same image(s) in black and white. I chose three to play with, and was interested and pleased with the results. I like black and white imagery when it is used to evoke a specific tone or feel, and in all three of these, I think it did. I can’t decide which I like better, though.
What do you think?
(PS – The last image was processed by the photographer, so probably has some additional enhancements, not just the black and white filtering that I did with the others.)
The subject matter of this picture – and the punitive nature of the Shrew’s Fiddle – lends itself well to black and white, I think.
I think I do like this one better in black and white. It’s sort of an “artful” image, and the black and white enhances that. in my opinion.
Although the black and white enhancements were done very professionally, and make a beautiful image, I have to say that I think I prefer this one in color. Maybe it’s vanity though – I love the light on my hair, turning it to a flame behind me, and the gold of the lock, which really pops in the color image.
(Thank you to Molly for letting me link this late – my son’s graduation kept me from getting it posted!)
