January Challenge: Black and White… Entry #5 Ice-Stormcicles

Vickie has sent me this next photo of icicles in the ice storm and I must say, it has boggled my brain in looking at it. The differences are subtle but I think this illustrates an important point. Look closely at her original image and you will see a hint of minute color in what appeared to the eye as nearly black and white in real life.

But when she processed this in black and white, you can see that these bits of color have disappeared and the black and white image is much more intense and effective, in my opinion.

  1. Love this image Vickie! It works so well in black and white and love all the little bubbles in the ice. It is very sharp with a wonderfully shallow dof and makes a beautiful abstract image as shot.
