happy st. patricks's day to all of you. it's not green here - rain and snow mix, but i couldn't ask
for anything better... gave me time to play with the blk and wht conversion techniques.
this first photo i took today but the rest are from my stash. i went searching for high contrast
photos with either lines, texture, tones - something i thought would convert to blk and wht.
i found so many... after playing most of the afternoon, these turned out to be my favorites.
hope you enjoy the beautiful black and whites as much as i enjoyed spending time tweaking
and learning different techniques. all photos have kim klassen's texture from beyond layers "aurora"
and what a great texture this one is - thank you kim.
May your pockets be heavy
and your heart be light.
And may good luck pursue you
each morning and night.
had to give my tree photo another run through. not a lot of difference but
i like this one best. i really love how all the different size branches pop
this one i took last winter (when we actually had snow)
max has such great contract, tones and texture in his coat
it made this conversion fun to do
and i'll finish this post with a picture of one of my favorite flowers...
the peony - shot last spring in my garden
