I love these photos. Black and white makes everything so much more dramatic.
Can't tell if that's a church or a courthouse in that last picture, but either way it's my favourite picture among these. They're all great, but the last one...the last one wins with me.
Nicki, High Contrast B&W can often end up looking like the photographer is trying to cover up their lack of skill with a camera. That isn't you. Not only are the photos balanced well with light and high contrast darks, your compositions are excellent.Didn't mean to make this a photo critique only, but you deserve praise for these shots. They are framable. One of the really cool things I noted is in the long shot photo of the bridge and river. The smaller, walking bridge/pier is great in there. The effect of the calm water reflection on the pilings that support it give the impression that it's bow-legged. Just a nice extra to the photo.
Beautiful. You really capture images that aren't just a photograph, but tell a story, darlin'.Black and white photos have always been my favorites.
I love all the photos! Everything's pretty. You're so good at photography. But I think you know that already.
Lovely! Makes me want to visit Boston even more! Buuuuut.... I'm more partial to flowers and sunshine than snow, so I hope you'll have some fun summer shots soon. :D
Impressive photos. I visited your blog because of what you wrote to Defiant Marshmallow. I appreciate your honest writing voice. Thanks.
Alexandra-- You know, I had some color pics to post too...but they just didn't look right. B&W really does add the drama.Chanel-- That's my favorite too! I love the two people on the church stairs--it makes the pic for me.D. Marshmallow-- I learn so much from you. Honest. Thank you. Kat-- Sometimes it goes too far and I wind up making stories up to go with the pictures...but thank you!Gnetch-- I am the amateur of amateurs. But thank you!Celia-- I MISS SUNSHINE AND FLOWERS TOO! Le sigh. Dbs-- Any fan of D.Marsh is a friend of mine. I'm off to check out your blog now...and thank you for your sincere comment. It meant a lot. Truly.
The contrast in these photos is really jarring without losing detail. I love it. I'm a junkie for black and white.
These phots are beautiful, expressive, moving... and make me realize even more that I have to visit you in the summer. Seriously, I'm cold just looking at them. Kudos lady. :)
