Photowalk 31

Doing a little post-shutter-click editing and made a couple of winter black & white photographs.

If the settings aren’t right, you can run the risk of having a blob of grays instead of a good black vs. white contrast.

And it turned out to be a little more difficult to get a good result than I thought it would!

This one is from a nearby park with a creek that runs through it.

Blowing snows plays on the solitude of the bench.

Dense area of trees in another park nearby -- shows it's a bit more difficult to contrast when there is subject density... but the trees are cool!

Black & white works well with winter (alliteration, you know I love it!)

I’ve been taking notes on the specifics of the day (time of day, cloudy/sunny, etc) as well as the camera settings so I can continue to improve my skills.

There’s always something new to learn and try!
