LAPC #235: Shadows and Reflections in Monochrome, Patti’s looking for shadows a/o reflections but in monochrome.
Patti from P.A. Moed CREATIVE EXPLORATION IN WORDS AND PICTURES Wrote;
This week, we’re challenging you to show us photos with reflections and/or shadows captured or processed in monochrome. Feel free to process your image in different shades of blue, green, brown, or gray. You can also shoot your image in a setting that’s predominantly one color–like a blue sea and sky, for example. I’ve checked quite a few experts who agree that black and white photos are not two colors, but varying shades of one color–gray. Purists will refer to black and white images as grayscale. So, for our challenge, black and white images fall under the category of monochrome.
The photos below are from our recent trip to the southern states, South Carolina and Georgia.
Water reflections – obviously easiest to do.
Birds and reflection from Florida, and lake reflection from Nastola, Finland
As I’ve stated before I am not a very technical photographer, more into composition, mood. I do my magic on the edit table mostly, if you can call it magic, more like my interpretation of places and people. I am also not one to write all that much, let the photos speack for themselves.
I have two cameras an old reliable SONY SLT-A65V, and I have two lences I use with it one for Macro Sony Macro 2.8/50 and portraits. The other for nearly everything a Sony 18-200mm.
The Sony has been in less use since I bought a new lighter one to carry around, its a Olympus E-M10 Mark II with a 14-150mm lense and I have a OM-D M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm 1:1.8 for street and portrait photography

Your collection delievers much serenity to me … but below the piers strike me as mysterious. Well done, Ritva … I like them!
Thanks Frank, you alwasy voice your opinion so nicely!
Beautiful images, as always.
One weird thing though, pikku-kukkanen blog-7, looks bnw until I click on it and then it is in color.
I changed it in WordPress, but it only changed it in the front page and not when you opened it. that was a surprise to me too.
I THOUGHT I recognized some South Carolina in the Rita! Lovely choices this week, especially the shadows.
I recognized Savannah in your header image, Ritva! A really outstanding collection in monochrome–varied, diverse, and beautiful.
Thanks, happy to hear that Patti!
I enjoyed the Charleston set, the October 2 (a lot), and the under the bridge shots…so really all of them but those stuck out. 🙂
Thanks Janet, the bridge shots, I went out in such for shadows in monochrome, glad it worked out best
Excellent photos for this post. Loved your shadows and reflections!
Nuo betonisiltakuvat kolahtivat kovimpaa tästä komeasta setistä 🙂
Kiitos, ne oli mitkä tarkoituksella kävin kuvaamassa. 🙂
Marvellous set of images, the second and third I particularly like for composition and atmosphere in abundance. Like you, I use the Olympus 45mm lens for street and portraits, a great little lens
Sue Thanks, yes and so light weight.
Beautiful selection of monochrome images, and I love the color reflections as comparisons, Ritva!
Thanks Johnbo 🙂
Great photos. Yes, I love the water shots.
Thanks John, appreciate it
These are all excellent – love your forests and landscapes.
Thanks, glad you liked them.
You are one of my favorite photographers. And your vision to let your photos speak for themselves comes through every time. Well done. My favorites today are the fountain, and the pier.
That is a huge compliment, thanks for your kind words
Beautiful set. Loved the herons
Thanks so much
