Color removed.

Aileni indulges his Monochrome Mania at this dedicated site, and lets the rest of us play along.

I actually removed color from only three of these, and if I hadn't told you that you would probably not have noticed the tiny bit of color in the one I left. Do you even seen it?

The primary color removed? the blue of the sky. And here I have been, moaning over our gray skies lately!
Removing the color gives an opportunity to look at other aspects of photography--such as composition. The same view above and below--which do you prefer?
In quilting we sometimes find a way to absent ourselves from the colors to see the values and how they contrast. It works in black and white photography as well.

These photos will relate to the Odd Shot post which follows later.

So, did you see the color?

Ok so is that tiny lavendaar house in the middle left window pane the color?

Where is your odd shot ??

I am freezing when I look at your black and white pictures !

Aileni said...

Am I right in picking the shot through the window?

Very good to see you over here.

The first one for me - I love the strong contrast.

Colour in the third photo. Even apart from the yellow post and just a whisper of green in the trees, the snow has a golden sunny glow. Now tell me it's my imagination!

So subtle that it is hardly there and the images themselves are so winter sweet.

Gosh, that is a lot of snow. I can't imagine what it must be like to live in those conditions.
