Black and White Revisited

A little over a week ago I wrote about a photo I had taken of leaves in black and white.  The post can be found here.  One of the things that I had been hoping to do was show the frost on the leaves.  Lori Ono, who commented on the original post, suggested some ways in which I might bring out the frost in the editing.  I used some of those suggestions to make this version:

ISO 1000 50mm 1ev f/2.2 1/640

This time I think the frost, particularly on the stems of the leaves, is visible.  In order to get this effect, I first put the photos into black and white with a blue filter in Aperture.  Then I edited the bracketed photos in Photomatix.  I cropped and sharpened the photo when I brought it back into Aperture.

If you click on Lori’s name above, it will take you to a photo challenge posting she wrote that I think turned out really well.

  1. I’m sorry I didn’t reply to this sooner. I love the changes. I can see the frost much better and really like how the leaves stand out more!

    Thanks for keeping me in the loop.
