Last week I learned a bit about photography

Thanks to @peter2017 I know now that some target scene I shoot are not perfect for a monochrome edit - today I have some rocks in the Black Sea with waves edited as coloured GIF as well as in Monochrome style and would love to hear your feedback on what looks better - colour or black&white?

The photos have been taken this morning by me not at the famous Rock Coast of the Black Sea near Burgas, but directly at the city beach of Burgas - there are not many of them but I like them. I usually do some fitness work there to bring the fat body in at least a little bit of shape.

the picture is very interesting in my opinion.
if you take it with a DSLR camera it will be more interesting when using a high speed setting, so that it can be seen clearly with the splash of water. in the world of photography, it is commonly called splash photography.

Does that look better here?

I also prefer in this case the b&w version. It gives more dynamic and the hard contrast adds to the illusion of motion. Next time try a long exposure. But this would require a tripod and a ND-Filter (Neutraldichtefilter).

Thanks @peter2017 - hmmm ND filter - I only use my smartphone camera and even have not used any real camera since ages. But I have a Canon at home still - need to check what features are included there (I hardly used).

Oh, sorry Uwe! I thought you were using a “real“ camera. ;-)

On my smartphone, I can tweak the exposure settings. So I once tried using my sunglasses as an ND filter. Well, if I had kept those pictures and you were lenient toward me, you might grant them some artistic value.

Excellent idea to simulate a ND Filter on a smartphone!

Checking this tomorrow, thanks for the hint.

Asche über mein Haupt, aber besser für die Kamera :-)

i like the monochrome photos and the texture of the seaweed growing on the rocks. If it was possible to capture a closeup of the water hitting the rock i think that could looks quite nice as well.

·

Thanks for the tipp - I might try a closeup tomorrow if the weather is still as great.

The coloured photos need some splashing water to be interesting. The b&w versions have more tension of their own. For me, the monochrome pictures are the winners.
Curiously, I am pretty sure that with long exposures the coloured versions would win over b&w.

·

I agree with you. Beside of that, colors on the gif seems to be a bit pale and desaturated.
Monochrome photos looks just way much better here

·

Thanks for the professional feedback - agree on more splashing for the coloured ones - issue is there are no major waves at Black Sea - maybe next time in the evening or early morning.

·

Lovely to see we have some stuff in common :-).

·
·

Yes, Indeed ;)

Look at the detail that shows in the mono tho!!!! Sweet, Uwe!

·

Thanks my friend! Your feedback means a lot!

Preciosas!
