I have a new lens for the “big” camera. No – I don’t know how to use it yet (& today was no good at all – storms and rain & wind 7 thunder & working). But yesterday, I did play a little. Can’t focus yet properly and, annoyingly, I see better through the viewfinder without my glasses, but it does cause horrendous eye strain. Now what am I going to do about that!
But, as there were both hits and misses, I played with black and white a little again – and sometimes played with those photos that did work. I will leave it to you to decide which you think is more effective.
Flame tree flowers in scarlet against grey – & the black and white version
Flame tree and a singing honey eater – & the black and white version:
A wattle bird
& a wattle bird again, on his own:
Now for some black and white. For various reasons, the colour versions of these just didn’t work.
I like how the branches turned out in this one:
This I added a yellow tinge to:
This flower worked well-ish…
Some singing honey eaters – more or less buried in the flowers drinking nectar:
& these two little guys were quite visible:
Finally, a gerbera from Amelia’s garden and a wee New Holland honey eater on a wire:
I am enjoying this play with black and white. Not sure what I’ll do with them, though friends suggest wallpaper, prints…
I will have to see what happens…
