Monochrome Oktober Day 31

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image

I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my facebook page

Sunset

The other day I was up on one of the local mountains just about sunset, the weather was closing in and just before I headed down there was a break in the clouds and this happened.  For your viewing pleasure.

Britannia

Ich dachte nur, dass ich mit Ihnen ein paar Bilder von meiner Reise zurück nach England für die Taufe meines jüngsten Sohnes zu teilen. Ich denke, dass Sie weggehen, um zu schätzen, wo Sie sind. Eine sehr grüne und angenehme Land!

I just thought that I would share with you a few shots of my trip back to the UK for my youngest son's christening. I think that you have to go away to appreciate where you are from. A very green and pleasant land!

The End of November

As November comes to an end, we went for a drive up to a restaurant that sits on the side of the valley wall. The weather had created a base layer of clouds just below where the restaurant sits so it gave for some interesting shots. I also had a crack at creating a wide angle panorama covering the main valley and one of the side valleys. Interesting stuff and photoshop makes it relatively easy to do, but my computer had to work hard to create it, with a final full resolution image coming out at over 1GB! Don't worry the version I have posted is a lot smaller. If you have any comments or questions just leave them below. Thanks.
