Photo-a-Day (Friday, 12th February, 2016)
Tan Pit Cottages
Another good one. Why is it that monochrome shows up features that colour doesn't?
I think B/W is okay in winter shots, but colour for summer with the plants in flower and trees in leave.
Interesting photo, Dave. Where is this?
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.
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.
To me this is lifeless without colour.
I see that Garry is still making a blunder.
It's at the top of highfield grange
left then second on the right
love monochrome ,but sometimes colourdraws attention to detail
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.
This photo certainly demonstrates that monochrome still has a place in photography. I quite like monochrome for portraits
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!
Perhaps people with negative comments
could turn over a new "leaf" and "leave" others content. We should accept others as they are.
Irene, the blunder is Garrys spelling mistake, i would think that is what Ernest is referring to.
Thank you Irene x.
I also agree with Garry- life would be depressing without colour. You can find beauty in most things in nature.
You are right, Roy. He doesn`t check anything and not only spelling.
Ernest, please leaf it alone.
I'm not the best at spelling! but hope you know what i'm saying! thanks.
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,
Some verry bad spelling mistkes on hear Earnest.
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.
Creating a monochrome image lets you focus on form, texture, shape and composition.
No for me....Goths may like it.
Earnest give Gary a break.
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.
