Black and White with a Twist

There may be a groan on this one but whats a challenge with a twist???? First think back or look back at past challenges here and pick 2 subjects, then shoot them in Black and white or in color and convert them, pretty simple except no repeat pics from old challenges… This first one is the Challenge "Pets" this in Buster running in the snow. Buster is already B&W and his sweater is also
This is a old barn on a friends farm

This I think is my favorite(don't tell Buster!) I shot it with my night setting this week after all the heavy rains we had. I very rarely use this setting, but thought it would be fun to try for this challenge.

Ed thanks again for making me expand my comfort zone.

All very nice. I'm partial to the barn shot. :)

Yep, that's a classic Kentucky barn with character :-)

Oh...Buster!!!! Interesting to me that his energy commmunicates so well in b/w. In color, I'd be distracted by his sweet soft ears!

The toadstool....oh myyyyyy....I love it!
I think I see a fairy's heel just as she's running out of the frame!

June I thought the same thing anout the fairy, the b&w made this look magical.

Nice job, the Buster shot is great and so is the night setting. I'll have to try that myself.

The barn is perfectly suited for B&W. And I like the mysterious night shot, too.

Buster is cute, even though we can't see his face, we can feel his excitement from all the other details in the photo. Nice!

Paula said...

Is that last one a mushroom? I love it! And Buster jumping is too cute. Good job this week!

WhimsybyMari said...

Yes it is a mushroom looks like I needed a fairy in the picture.

Thanks for visiting my site.

Dear Buster, I hope he is not freezing running in the cold like that.

Do you knit little booties for him as well?

Cheers,

Ann

My heart wants to love the Buster picture best. Dogs are my favorite four-legged friends. Like you, I lean toward the mushroom. Great light!
