My world in a Black and White scene
Nowadays, even having access to great features for taking color photos, many people prefer to take black and white photos.
We visualize reality with color, yet the b&w recordings provoke special and even dazzling reactions, and for many people a scene looks better in a monochrome tone.
Color often distracts the eye and ultimately leaves the image a bit "polluted" due to too much information.
For me, b&w photography simplifies the scene by reducing the image to well-defined tones and shapes where light and darkness gain a special value in composition.
The black and white world is a world of pure light, contours, textures, brightness and darkness.
This photo was taken in Valencia- Spain from the Meliã hotel.
Night aerial shot with long exposure.
The original photo was taken with color and later edited for b & w
Here is the original record
There is not a big difference in the contrast between the two scenes because it is a night shoot and the low light already cancels most colors.
Which one do you prefer?
