Week Three – Black & White



For Week three, I returned to the original image and created a B&W version. I simply tweaked the exposure and gamma and increased contrast & decreased brightness in PS CS3.  As usual, I played around with a variety of edits for hours until I finally settled on the simplest, quickest of them all.

You really don’t want to miss Robyn’s beautiful edit this week, so hop on over to her Captivate Me Blog!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

      1. Noise reduction is not as easy as it first sounds. The aim should never me to remove noise just make it less distracting. Once this is attained the noise that is left can add texture to the picture.
