About the Image(s)

My monochrome image titled After the Snowfall is attached. This is a recent attempt on my quest to calm the chaos in photos taken of an unkempt woodlot near my home. This past February we had a light snowfall with no wind that left the branches of the trees and bushes covered in snow. The snow greatly simplified the scene. In order to evaluate how much the scene changed, I took subsequent photos 4 (color image with some snow) and 8 days (color with melted snow) after the original photo which are attached. The monochrome image was processed in Lightroom. The white and black points were adjusted to increase the tonal range and some clarity was applied. The camera was hand held with exposure settings of 1/200 sec, f/5.6, and ISO 100.

This is a very cool study. Congrats on sharing your insights with us. The snowy monochrome image is much simpler and pleasing. The convoluted nest of branches in the color versions is far less pleasing to view. Thanks for the idea. I like the story of the monochrome image and the feel of the fridge environment.   Posted: 07/09/2024 14:21:13
