The other day, Kacey over at Wine on the Keyboard, issued a B&W Challenge. Just a little get-together, I guess, to share B&W photos. On my previous challenge post, I did two people photos. This time, I'm doing things that lend themselves to B&W. Well, at least they do in my eye. They'r'e practically black & white to begin with, so it's not much of a stretch.
Regardless, for the weathervane shot, it was a grey day and I just brightened it up a bit with photoshop. Looking at it now on the site, I think I should've straightened it up a wee bit, but I'm going to be lazy and not.
OMG, that e-trade commercial is on the television right now with that baby that sits in front of the camera and talks about stocks and how he had enough money leftover to rent the clown in his bedroom, BoBo. How weird is that commercial?
Ok, what was I saying?
The second photo is of George, our pup. He's well, he's already black & white. So I desaturated the photos (control+shift+u) and then I put borders around each, with a soft edge inside of them. Instructions are on the previous post. On the pup pic, I used Tracey's suggestion of making the white areas glow, and I lowered the opacity somewhat. I found her suggestion on the original challenge at Wine on the Keyboard.
Have a lovely evening everyone.
