Since so many of you seem to like black & white pictures from around the Mediterranean… 🙂
No pictures of the Acropolis, I’m afraid, because – would you credit it! – on the day we forgot the camera. On the other hand, sacrilegiously, I dared to turn Santorini into black & white.
I thought that Greece, with its strong colours would make a good subject for black & white photography. I leave you to decide whether it did. For myself, I learned two things:
- That black & white won’t hide the deficiencies of the original photo. If anything, it highlights certain things: like that the photo was overexposed in the first place. A large number of our photos in Greece, taken with a point-and-shoot camera came out overexposed (which given the strength of the sun there in August probably shouldn’t have come as a surprise).
- No amount of fiddling in Photoshop (although if I actually knew how to use Photoshop instead of just beginning to dabble, I might have done better) will rescue a s**t photo.
