About the Image(s)

Our photography club recently had a field trip to a local historical ruins, a church dating from the 1700s that sits in a completely rural setting some 20 miles from any communities. It is a very serene setting. I shot the initial photos in RAW with a B&W jpeg. The B&W on site immediately demonstrated that B&W was the way to go. It immediately brought the shadows and textures to the forefront. 1/320, f5.6. ISO 200. 16mm f1.4 Fujifilm lens on an X-T2.

Sanford - I really like the B/W treatment. You've re-imagined this very well. I do like the crop, although I also liked your shadow in the original. Very well done!   Posted: 03/07/2020 07:54:09

Thanks. Hopefully I have learned to watch out for my shadow, unless it's groundhog day.   Posted: 03/07/2020 13:32:45

Nice choice going for the B&W!Love the sunlit lines in the foreground and wonderful contrast for B&W with shadows and light. Kudos!   Posted: 03/11/2020 13:26:39

A wonderful image Sanford. B&W does really suit this type of subject and you have produced a great image. I acknowledge Cyndy's liking of your shadow, but I always hate getting my shadow in images. By the way, yesterday I came back from a long weekend away with my camera club to the NSW country town of Orange. Watch this space. You & I are often on the same photographic wavelength.   Posted: 03/16/2020 06:32:23
