THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: S-CURVE

 

Curves are nice, attractive and fun, aren’t they? I love them too,  especially in nature. This image comes from Croatian National Park – Plitvice Lakes. If you want to visit it, just follow the snake.

IN A ROW

Wouldn’t be nice to have all of one’s ducks or at least matches in a row? Not very feasible except in my photography. I need some peaceable time after my crazy week and wish all visitors the same.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PORTRAIT VS. LANDSCAPE

 

Today you are invited to post a portrait and landscape format of the same scene. You may be surprised at how much different they look and what each one reveals. That’s the only requirement for this challenge. The subject is up to you. Have a great day!

MAY RECAP

I’ve been so busy lately (and still am) that I completely forgot about my May recap. Here it is:

and here are the black and white images I posted last month:

 

 

 

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: WINDOWS

Last week for Black & White Sunday I converted a landscape shot to monochrome to get rid of the pink colour, and today I am showing a monochrome image where I purposely retained some colour. This method is called selective colouring. The theme of today’s photo challenge is WINDOWS. Show me some windows, old or new, selectively coloured or entirely monochrome it is up to you. Wishing you all a good Sunday and a great week ahead!

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: AFTER AND BEFORE Y1-05

Regular visitors to my blog know that once a month on a Sunday (usually the last one in a month) I post a combined photo challenge theme for Black&White Sunday. It is called AFTER and BEFORE and it invites you to post the same  image both in black and white and in colour. The topic and subject are entirely arbitrary. The only condition is that you post an image captured in colour and that you turn it monochrome in post processing. I enjoy this little exercise which permits me to see the same scene through colour and without it, and I hope that you will enjoy doing the same. The deadline is next Saturday. Have a great week ahead!

AFTER

Sometimes I have trouble deciding which edit I prefer. Is it colour or black and white? The thing I like about black and white edit here is that there is no sight of the pink jacket in the right of the frame, and that the shapes of mountain are more discernible. Still, I like to think of nature in colour, its colours and shades are inimitable.

BEFORE

LIGHT CATCHER

I like walking at dusk and after the dusk to see how different places look under artificial lights. Here are two captures of the same scene, one with and one without a passing tram.

EVANESCENT

I thought it would be a good idea to take Jo for a night walk through the centre of Zagreb. This is linked to her Monday Walk, but also to EVANESCENT weekly photo theme.

Also related to Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons in May.
