Phoneography Challenge~Fountain in Black and White


A Sunday afternoon meditation.

Water cascading

shadows lingering

time escaping

    Great shot, Angeline. Nice choice for the B&W challenge, as was the poem to accompany it,

    This photo has such a different look to it…. something stands out in the B&W that might not do so in colour… it is a good choice for the challenge, a good photo, I think I would love to know what settings you used on the original photo, specially your shutter speed and did you use a tripod ??


    • Angeline M says:

      I shot this photo with my smart phone, a Samsung Android. No tripod, I used the zoom feature to come in close. I converted it from color to black and white in PicMonkey. The B&W did change the look especially of the water coming down on the right side of the fountain, that kind of jagged look.

        I cannot put my finger on what fascinates me about the photo, just that it is a beaut and has a certain mystique to it… I think it’s a brilliant photo… so whatever you did it turned out damn good….


      • Angeline M says:

        Wow and thank you, bulldog. I know I increased shadows in the edit. I’ve been working on that more after reading an article on using shadows to increase depth.


  6. Beautiful words to accompany your lovely photo, Angeline. 🙂

  8. Angeline, that looks so cool in B&W and, I imagine, very different from the color version!

  10. Engaging for its patina of the past–a vintage image. Happy Photo Challenge.
