Photo Shoot: Working in Shadow

Old Shed in color and black and white (I used a PS technique and isolated the door color.


Summer image of the White Mountains in the back ground on cloudy day, with the casted shadows. In color and B&W.

Enjoyed this, Betty. One thing: the door of the old shed in B&W is still in colour. Or am I colourdeaf?

BEAUTIFUL!
The top one is lovely, but I think the last one is my favorite.  Love the foreground detail with the outrageous background!

Ohh I lovee the white mountains one.. We have mount Monadnock that looms here over Keene NH but oddly enough I can never get a shadow picture off of it. its either covered completely or totally sunny.. Either way the white mountain area of NH is beautiful and you take great pictures

Very nice entries.  Shadows are very hard to deal with photographically, and I think you did a fine job with them.

I think I will go for color on the old shed. The B&W is nice, though.

good timing is always a help! I like the "shed" shots very much.

I think I'm due for a good long walk through a meadow, somewhere....

The colored shot of the shed appeals to me, as well.  It makes the shed more inviting (enticing a closer look), for me.   Your distance from the shed is:  just close enough to give a few details to attract interest, making me wonder what more is there to be "inspected";  and not so far away, to be so vague, as to make me pass it by as just another shed.  The B&W shot makes the image more vague, in order to entice me to take a closer look.  If the B&W shot was a little closer to the shed, then maybe it would show some better and subtle details, making me wonder what else is there to be seen.  

When someone makes something and does a really good job of construction, and this applies to any "art work", it attracts attention on its own merits.  If this were just another shed, poorly built, it wouldn't "inspire" me.  This shed has qualities that is readily seen, even in it aged state.  Someone, obviously, took time to design and build this shed.  I want to see more of it.  The color shot better tweaks my interest, for more details, that way.

.... kinna like when seeing a good looking girl.... I'd want a closer inspection!
