I’ve been reading and summarizing my notes from the workshop . . . lots of stuff to process. I still plan to write a summary of sorts, but the task now looks more daunting than I first thought. Not just the volume of information, but also the scope and breath of it.
Mind you, I won’t duplicate it all here; just touch on some general points and give my impression of the workshop.
However, not now. Now I need a break.
On my last post I put up this photo:
A comment was made about turning it into a B&W offering. I think I can do that . . . in spades.
As a first effort, it holds its own. However, I wondered how it would look with a bit more contrast, a bit more punch.
I thought this pretty good as well but then wondered if it was, perhaps, too “in-your-face”. Something with a sepia-like tone might fare a bit better in the eyes of discerning B&W connoisseurs.
Then, my mood turned dark . . .
. . . and darker still . . .
I got to thinking that perhaps the butterfly photo . . .
. . . might also benefit from a B&W treatment. Perhaps something in contrast to the bright colors of the butterfly.
Once again I contemplated adding more punch.
Maybe a bit cleaner lines and less grain?
Maybe a bit more contrast while punching up the shadows?
And then, suddenly, I felt blue . . .
Some will point out some photos are just not suited to B&W treatments. I will counter with this:
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
