I had shot some monochrome photos to post tonight for Lens and Pens by Sally’s photography challenge. I changed my mind when I was going back home and passed in front of a park and stopped to appreciate the scenery.
It was the end of a working day for many people. The streets were busier. Bikers getting back home. Pedestrians running to catch the trams. The park’s majestic trees stood in the background of cars, trams, bikes and people, composing a beautiful image of transition. Transition from day to night. From playing daily roles to resting and recovering to start a new day.
These images made me think deeper of transition, which in turn evokes possibilities, discoveries, growth and renewal. It’s a good feeling to close the play.
I shot with an iPhone 5. I used the iPhone camera for the first shot. I edited for B&W and increased contrast.
I used for the first time a new app for BW shots, Hueless, to capture the 2nd image.
I am happier with the results from the 1st image but the 2nd seems overexposed. What do you think? Any advise?
I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge. Following the link you will learn all you need know about it.
The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Black & White.
