The weather didn’t cooperate with me this evening. I had another summer fun image in mind, and couldn’t get outside due to the rain and clouds. Then I was struck with an idea to try an experimental shot which took advantage of the wind. I set up the camera… and guess what happened to the wind? That’s right, it’s a good thing we’re not sailing anywhere, as the entire yard was suddenly becalmed.
So I decided to play around with black and white a bit. I need to get some serious practice with black and white effects, as I’m still relying entirely on presets within Lightroom. I actually made this image just to practice processing. I have another non-black and white, non-tree image that I had intended to use as the image of the day. But something about this image just hits me. To be honest I’m not sure if I like it or not. My opinion swings back and forth the longer I look at it. I figured what the heck, I’ll post it and see what you guys think.
