It’s all a bit burlywood

Sunday Still Monthly Colour Challenge: Walking in a Burlywood World

OK Hands up who knows what burlywood is? Well it appears that it is one of those colours that just is…..nothing that makes it stand out, a kind of tan of sorts. This is the sample Terri gave us

I think I have variations but trying to find an exact match is proving difficult. What do you think? Did I get close enough?

Getting into shape

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry
Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Diamonds, Triangles or Squares

Look for the shadow

The 2020 Photo Challenge #45 – November Theme/Technique: Black and White Photography

From Jude’s tips – “What is important though is the composition. Try using a square format to emphasise the composition especially if there is a distinct pattern formation. When you take a picture in monochrome you may have to make different decisions about how you compose the shot.

“One sees differently with colour photography than black and white… in short visualisation must be modified by the specific nature of the equipment and materials being used” Ansel Adams

You can use Monochrome Mode on your camera, or turn colour photos into black and white with your favourite post-processing application.”

This week's assignment - Look for shadows and textures. Carefully choose your images so that you can angle the light to create a sense of depth with the shadows.
