Monochrome (is not always a black and white issue)
« on: November 10, 2018, 02:54:33 pm »

Since none of the good photographers in this forum have made the move yet, here is an attempt to start a place for sharing and discussing monochrome images, no matter how they were produced. Just a quick scan of an old print, deliberately(?) setting a low bar.

Maybe a section for just sharing without the emphasis on "critique"?

Nice picture; the first thing to strike me was the very Picasso eyes!

Rob,

    You are very kind.  Here is another, less heavy on the sepia. If it were digital, I could probably clone out all hints of modernity.

The blanket is familiar, Eric; but I love the textures in the second. Made for monochrome treatment.

Thanks, Jeremy and Dave.
Both were from a 4x5" view camera, back in the 1960s.
The "knots" shot was actually the bench of my parent's picnic table, when the light was striking it just right.

A couple of early digitals. I find monochrome rendering challenging enough, never mind getting a print that really sings.

Having another try at attaching single picture

Got it, the last try was from my kindle Fire and I just seemed to be able to install a link to whole site.

One thing that confused me for a while is that
- the “add image” button above the composing box is only for “linking out” to an image already on a website
- to upload an image “inline”, one uses the item “Atachments and other options” below the composing box.

But Eric, let's move to the dark side. I deliberately processed this image so that it looks almost underexposed, letting the dark background go almost black. Do you dare go into these woods?
