Black & White Photo Challenge #5

April12 374 - Version 2Final Day Five – Tulips after the rain

Recap: I have been invited by Ana of Celebrating Sunshine to participate in a Five Day Black and White Photography Challenge. Her blog is full of cheerful, inspirational posts exploring the positive side of life. Please visit her blog to see for yourself. Thank you, Ana for inviting me to this challenge.

There are only two rules for the black and white photography challenge:

  1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in black and white.

  2. Each day invite another blogging friend to join in the fun.

I’m normally drawn to color photography over black and white, so I accepted the challenge to see if I could improve my appreciation for it.

Today I invite Sharon at Sunearthsky to join us in the challenge. She takes breath-taking, beautifully composed photos of the Great Plains landscape of the American Midwest. No pressure, however, this is about having fun!

  1. The captured rain drops are almost as beautiful as the tulips themselves. Lovely shot. 🙂

    Very interesting your B&W work, I’ve been seeing it and like it. Is it a challenge for you to work in B&W? I don’t know that I could.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Maria. Yes, we are pretty addicted to color, but it wasn’t too hard… I chose photos that had outstanding texture and contrast – that seems to be the ticket to success. Maybe you should give it a try! Join the challenge!

    I Love all your black-and-white pictures but especially today’s the black-and-white seems to capture the raindrops so perfectly great job

  4. Jewels says:

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank so much Robbie for the kind words and taking time out to stop by. I love to envision you up to your elbows in green seedlings and soil.
      Snowing, eh? That may be heading our way. 😦 At this time of year, it’s not what we want to see!

    Wow – a gorgeous shot!

  9. Sharon says:

    This is a beautiful shot, Eliza! There’s something fresh about it, like the monochrome brings real clarity. I will post a black and white today in your honor :-). Thank you for thinking of me!! x

  10. Debra says:

    Great job! Love the drops on the tulips and the black lines of the foliage behind them. I was wondering about the original colour too. Knowing they were a pale pink is surprising because the white seems so clear.

  11. Can I say that the raindrops are iridescent? Viewing the B&W is an experience of joy!
