Point Lobos the Black and Whites
I figured since I was at Point Lobos and I was moved by the connection to the work of the great photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston there would be no better way to pay tribute to these to giants than to make some photos in Point Lobos in B&W.
The staggering beauty of the Pacific comes through powerfully in B&W and gives the photos a quality that is lost in the color shots. Without color you feel the substance of these landscapes in a whole different way.
Keep Makin' Art!
I love the way you produce masterpieces by the handful. The final three would be my selection, but they are all brilliant.
Masterpieces by the handful.... I like that Dave you are great for my ego. If you have not seen the color stuff from the day before's post it makes interesting viewing to judge both. I have been editing photos for two days and can't tall what's good and what's not anymore..That must mean it is time to get out with my camera and do some work behind the lens....
When I first saw these, I found a similarity to Ansel Adams' work. Dave is right, you have created masterpieces! I think the b and w gives it more of a boldness, a dramatic feeling to the whole scene. What a lovely place to photograph, congrats Carl!!
Beautiful in black and white, as well. I really like the last one. Such a classic, beautiful, scene.
Vicki - I think you are right the last one is my fav as well.
Thanks Linda - Masterpieces is afully strong, but I am quite pleased with how they came out.
Do you shoot in B & W or do you shoot in color then edit to B & W? What method do you use, ;) in Photoshop?
You have nice contrast in your B&Ws ...definitely an Ansel Adams-look to them.
Hi Marie - I shoot in raw and do a basic adjustment in photoshop raw tool then I save as a tiff the tiff I will use Nik software's Silver Efex Pro to convert to BW. Alternately I have been known to make an HDR image out of three files -2, N, +2 and then convert the file in Silver Efex Pro. I like the Nik SW interface and find I have a great flexibility of control over the image.
Wow... guess all my comments that I made were sucked up by the blogger universe =( What the heck?!?
anyway... love these in b/w Carl... especially the last one. Such a beautiful seascape!
