A little comparison.
A couple of you here, and on other social media, liked my last black and white offering very much. Thank you. You said that was the right direction to take the picture. I agree with you. I thought that it was too.
You can’t possibly know that without seeing both versions of the image. Maybe the color version was really wowie-zowie. That’s a technical term for really good. Ha! Rather than repost a picture so soon along with its colorful mate, I thought that I would post two new images that are similar in subject and theme.
Here they are. Still in the theme of water. Still a very tightly composed image, with no crops or external enhancements. Both versions do have a funny rim shadow that looks like I popped a strobe on it. I didn’t. That is just a characteristic of late afternoon light that feel after the storm.
By the way, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see a portrait of the dog who shows me stuff on our walks. It too is in black and white. I’m supposed to work in color. I’ve made my career on it. But, lately I’ve been intrigued by my earliest roots. Black and white photography.
Who knows where my muse will lead me. All I know is that I should pay attention.
