Weekly Black & White Square Photo

Rocks & A Stream

This photo was taken with a DSLR and an 18 - 105 lens. This ISO was 400 and exposed for 1/6 sec @ f/16, in Aperture Priority Mode. Although I hand held this shot I did brace my hands on the side mirror of my car and looked through the view finder from about two feet back; I was sitting in the drivers seat when I took this image.

In Photoshop Elements I cropped the image and converted it to a B&W photo. I then added some vignetting, burning in, contrast and a touch of sharpening.

I found this scene when my wife and I were yard surfing and I took this image while waiting for my wife to come back to the car.

Yeah, this is my world and you are welcome to it.

  1. Beautiful shot. Some people do not believe in B&W landscape/nature shots but I think it adds a whole lot of mood to the scene. Then again, you know I like me some moody B&W!
