The darkest nights and white lights

long exposure bay bw 1.jpg

A while ago I was showing you my first attempt in long exposure photography which was fun, but not perfect. I kept some photos as I was curious to see how they will look in black and white.

Today was the day that I finally edited them and turned them to the darkest nights.

It's the bay near my place that during the day is full of birds and small boats. It looks so different on the photos here. Much bigger too.

The water was really low at that time and some places mud was showing. Otherwise I would get those very long reflections from the lights on the opposite side.

The dark patches is the mud island I was mentioning. Normally it is all water, but it's so shallow that with low tide you could walk across with ease.

I like the contrast and the calm of the shots with everything around sunk in the black (damn I am poetic sometimes) with some spots of light, but I think the colour of the warm lights in the skies I like more.

Still and nice thing to try.

Ładne zdjęcia... Nocne pory mogą być bardzo inspirujące dla kreatywności. Szczególnie lubię spokojne, ciepłe letnie noce.

You know... the pressure of picking something fitting and in the same time in monochrome is real!

Music is always around :)

The black and white photos are amazing, it looks so mysterious. I used to practice like this before, but it wasn't easy.

Great photos. I loved that you converted long exposure photos to black and white. I think they give people peace of mind. I like the dark.

The black color of despair, suffering, the color of the dark past... but hidden inside it is the light of new heaven! Great song thank you for sharing it.

I have to admit that I prefer more colorful pictures and also like it when there is one main "topic" of the picture.

for experimenting with longtime exposure shots I can recommend moving lights like Cars, Ferry Wheels, longtime exposure of Water, waterfalls or explosions like Fireworks.

Have a nice day.

I will experiment more for sure!
Thanks for stopping by :)
