Month 3 for the One Four Challenge which you can read about it, and join it here. This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.
A landscape photo for this month…bare trees, a picnic table, a bench and a creek-bed…..all under a light dusting of snow and a very grey sky. The photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy phone using a square format.
For week 3, I played around with Black and White conversion. I haven’t done much experience with Black and White and was surprised how difficult it is to get a balanced version. I eventually settled on this version, created with the JixiPix software app, Dramatic Black and White HD. This app is available for both Android and Ios platforms as well as for Windows desktop and Mac.
I think there is some oversaturated black in the base of the trees and the bushes….but I do like how there is a lot of detail in the bark and the branches look very delicate. But there is still room for improvement.
You can see the original and weeks 1 and 2 versions in the gallery below:
