Comment by Helen of Troy on 12th February 2016 at 07:29
Another good one. Why is it that monochrome shows up features that colour doesn't?


Comment by Garry on 12th February 2016 at 08:09
I think B/W is okay in winter shots, but colour for summer with the plants in flower and trees in leave.


Comment by MarieM on 12th February 2016 at 09:35
Interesting photo, Dave. Where is this?


Comment by Vb on 12th February 2016 at 09:37
The lightest lights and the darkest darks and the mid tones always show up better Helen. This "Sleepy Hollows" picture would make a a very good subject for a pen and ink drawing. I don't know what David's answer would be. It would be interesting to know from the photographer's point of view.


Comment by A.W. on 12th February 2016 at 09:52
I agree Helen, I think sometimes that colour can draw attention to one feature, say a nice blue sky or something like that. Monochrome needs to be thought over a bit so you see more of the whole things. Very good Dave.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 12th February 2016 at 10:42
To me this is lifeless without colour.
I see that Garry is still making a blunder.


Comment by Cyril cpa on 12th February 2016 at 10:49
It's at the top of highfield grange
left then second on the right
good photo.


Comment by christine on 12th February 2016 at 10:50
love monochrome ,but sometimes colourdraws attention to detail


Comment by irene roberts on 12th February 2016 at 13:08
I like this very much but don't see how Garry is making a "blunder". He has a valid point about Summer flowers looking lovely in all their colour.


Comment by Beryl on 12th February 2016 at 14:57
This photo certainly demonstrates that monochrome still has a place in photography. I quite like monochrome for portraits


Comment by Neil Cain on 12th February 2016 at 15:01
I have got left behind by digital photography Dave. Back in the day a red filter might have produced a similar feel. Does that still apply? Come on Irene, you usually spot errors, but leave Garry be...Garry is innocent, free Garry!


Comment by Dave on 12th February 2016 at 15:06
Perhaps people with negative comments
could turn over a new "leaf" and "leave" others content. We should accept others as they are.


Comment by Roy on 12th February 2016 at 15:16
Irene, the blunder is Garrys spelling mistake, i would think that is what Ernest is referring to.


Comment by Garry on 12th February 2016 at 15:16
Thank you Irene x.


Comment by Vb on 12th February 2016 at 15:24
I also agree with Garry- life would be depressing without colour. You can find beauty in most things in nature.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 12th February 2016 at 16:31
You are right, Roy. He doesn`t check anything and not only spelling.


Comment by Ken R on 12th February 2016 at 16:35
Ernest, please leaf it alone.


Comment by Garry on 12th February 2016 at 17:39
I'm not the best at spelling! but hope you know what i'm saying! thanks.


Comment by Kas on 12th February 2016 at 17:55
I personally greatly admire the Dave Oy,s or anyone, (Rachel, is another ) who ask/ suggest that we look at pictures, , things , from another angle. Our brains want sunshine but there is also great and equal beauty from the dark skies . Maybe I have vampire tendancies within my dna but I prefer to call it balance. Just my opinion. Thanks Dave,


Comment by old bob on 12th February 2016 at 19:15
Some verry bad spelling mistkes on hear Earnest.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 12th February 2016 at 19:46
I chose mono for this as it was a very dull, overcast day, and there wasn't much co,our to be had anyway.
Neil - I still use orange and red filters on my cameras when shooting black and white film, and digitally when processing some digital files.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 12th February 2016 at 19:52
Creating a monochrome image lets you focus on form, texture, shape and composition.

Comment by Alan on 12th February 2016 at 20:01
No for me....Goths may like it.
Earnest give Gary a break.


Comment by irene roberts on 12th February 2016 at 21:13
Roy, I hadn't realised Ernest meant spelling mistakes in Garry's "blunder", and yes, Garry, we do know what you're saying, correct spelling or not! I pride myself on spelling and punctuation but can't add two numbers together!.....We all have our strengths and our weaknesses. We are Human Beings, not Computers.
