Black & White Photo Parade
We had two rainy days, one after the other, which should not surprise anyone as autumn should be bringing some rain. This morning looked gloomy too, but at some point the sun came out and because I've already heard in the news about the 4 rainy and cold days that are expected, maybe even snow at higher altitudes, I thought this was the perfect occasion to go out and take some photos.
The weather was almost like spring, the sun was shining and I was thinking how lucky I am to be able to enjoy it. My plan was to visit a fair, maybe do some shopping and also, as I mentioned above, take some photos.
After coming home, I can say it was an experimental day as I've done some things I've never one before. Like taking a photo of a tree in autumn, when colors are the most beautiful. Leaves are already falling and some trees don't have any leaves left on them, but the ground is covered with a colorful leaf carpet in most of the places. So I stood in front of this tree, trying out all my black and white filters on my phone, to see how it looks as monochrome and this is how it looks like. I guess I'm going to let you be the judge and tell me if you like the monochrome version ...
... or the original.
Next, there was this old, wooden church, which could look nice in black and white, but I'm still trying to figure out which filter is better, but I suppose it depends on the subject you're photographing and on many other things.
I was standing in front of the fortress gate, trying to hold my phone is the best possible position, and trying to line things as I should. At the scene I thought I did all I could, but once uploaded to my laptop, I see things in a different light. I could straighten this photo a bit, but won't do that. None of the photos were edited, these are the original photos.
And this is where things change. When I got there, the sun was already gone, which was a bit frustrating, but wasn't a tragedy after all. So I tried my best, but some editing was still needed.
I've been planning to do another photo shoot at this wonderful piece, but had no occasion till today.
This is the wooden structure above the remains of the craftsman's studio, that dates back to 1750, which is a historic monument now.
My plan was to take a few photos from different angles, which I did.
In my eyes, whoever has designed this, was a genius. I was standing there, looking at it and admiring it.
I suppose it's needless to say which is my favorite. This wooden structure is amazing, no matter from where you're looking at it.
Today was a good practice, to try out different filters. Now that sunshine is becoming scarce, I'll have time and occasion to play with the settings, adjust what it can be adjusted, in order to get a better photo.
Soooo, which one is your favorite today? 😏
