Sunday Stills

For Sunday Stills, the next Challenge:
Black and White with a twist!
This was a real lesson for me in "contrast."


Landscape


...in admittedly not much color...

...and in black and white....

Flowers and plants.

Trillium in color

...and in black and white.
Do fungi count as "plants"? I hope so because this, I think, is the best of the bunch.

In color...


...and in black and white...

I really like your landscape in B&W. Your eye is drawn to the light, instead of the dark ominous cloud.
(The other two look great, too)

I also love seeing the color and B & W versions of your lovely photos. Love how the B & W adds to the dramatic effect of the approaching storm cloud.

Love the effect of seeing the colour version against the black & white one. Excellent shots!

Nice pics! I like the way you compared color to B&W, The shot of the house turns so moody in a cool way.
