Dramatic November Start
Yesterday, Justine has challenged us to join her for a month of black and white photos during November. She didn't use the word "challenge" and maybe it's easy for you, but for me it's a real challenge! Not technically, as Photoshop Elements very conveniently offers the possibility to convert into black and white with a mouse click. My difficulty lies in my imagination - I can't foresee whether something colourful really looks good in black and white and mostly the photos turn out just dull.
I told Justine that I would join in not for the whole month but once in a while to use it as an opportunity for practice. So here is my first black and white photo - with a lot of help from nature, as a nearly leafless tree in front of an overcast sky presented itself almost perfectly in black and white already.
