photoblog image Woodland Shade

Woodland Shade

I usually do straight conversions to black and white.  On this occasion the image looked better in grey scale.  The subject is a friend  who was on a woods walk with me.

I like the B/W very much! Has a 'mood'
Mary MacADNski: I like the b/w too.
I prefer the colour version today, Mary. Good shot of the backwoodsman. smile
Mary MacADNski: I prefer the b/w but to each his own, I say.
I like them both very much. Handsome guy - but with that pose he'd be a bit intimidating to run into!
Lovely song.
Mary MacADNski: Many, many said he looks intimidating and I don't see it, perhaps because I know this person as extremely gentle and gentlemanly. He is a big Tom Waits fan.

Mary MacADNski: Still alive and kicking. smile

He does look a little intimidating in black and white
Mary MacADNski: Many, many said he looks intimidating and I don't see it, perhaps because I know this person as extremely gentle and gentlemanly. I had been far back and called his name, all ready with camera to eye.
In this case, Mary, I actually prefer the color because of the definition it gives to your friend.
Mary MacADNski: Seems a popular choice.

Two totally different pictures. The fist one could be from a "scary" movie.... Good for you that you have friends who like to walk too, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: He likes to snowshoe too!

The chiaroscuro comes across much better in b & w.
Mary MacADNski: Absolutely, I prefer the b/w.

If you go down in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise!

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain
Because today's the day the
Teddy Bears have their picnic
Mary MacADNski: I love that little ditty.
This makes a fine b&w Mary
Mary MacADNski: I like it a lot in B/W.

Light play is often better accentuated in b&w, than in colour. Parts that are half "blown" is also better recovered in b&w. See the tree trunk. That is one of reasons that I prefer the b&w version, so many times.
Mary MacADNski: I find blown light usually ruins b/w. I use it in painting to see the light tones only.
The B.& W.version has a slight sinister feel to it.
Mary MacADNski: Many, many said he looks intimidating and I don't see it, perhaps because I know this person as extremely gentle and gentlemanly.
Yes, I agree with Louis; the B&W does have a rather ominous look about it, Mary.
