The Weekend in Black and White: Shadow Play

This is one of those shots that didn't work well at all in color because the lighting wasn't great for full color. However, I thought it was effective in black and white. I was standing on a bridge looking down at the water but the shadow makes the water look like ground, at least to me.
For those of you who are celebrating Labor Day Weekend I hope it's a good vacation. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Click for the weekend in black and white.

Excellent composition and choice for black and white.


Dragonstar said...

I agree with you, and I like the way you range from very dark to very bright without losing detail.

It turned out to be a great composition in b&w with lines and light :)

Sivinden said...

A great shot in b&w - I had to study the picture and read your description to understand it.

Gillian Olson said...

This is a great photograph, what interesting shadows.

awarewriter said...

Yep, B&W works well for this photo. Nice detail and tonality.

This is a brillian shot! Turning it to mono is just perfect ;)

The black and white is great, but I also love the way the picture makes me feel as if I'm standing there looking down.

Indrani said...

It is a great photo, the way shadow runs diagonally across the shot, the birds, very well taken.

what a great b/w-photo - I love the shadows.

Francisca said...

I can see that color would detract from the story, which is the lines, the shadow, the textures. And yes, I also see ground, not water.

Genie said...

What a cool composition....I really do like it. The monochrome medium is perfect for this one. Love seeing you in the image. Great capture. genie
