Weekly Black & White Photography


Tree Line II

This image was created by using a Point & Shoot camera. The ISO is 100 and was exposed for 1/320 sec @f/4.5.

On Monday I posted the Color of Winter photo called Tree Line. This is another view of that same tree line but from a different angle. However I did convert this to a B&W image in Photoshop Elements.

Remember, it was a cloudy and a very heavy overcast day with some slight fog and and a little snow in the air. I exposed for the snow and the tree line and that made the background go dark. What you see there in the background is a tree shrouded hillside with bits of snow peeking out through the limbs.

So, we have the same subject, but one is in color and the other is in B&W, and they were taken from differing points of view. The result is two very different photographs of the same subject taken just seconds apart…
