52 Week Smartphone Challenge: Week 3

For this week the topic is Black and White. I started with this scene:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.2mm 1/272 sec

I liked this as a color image but thought it might make a nice black and white as well.  The edits are done in Luminar. In addition to the black and white filter, I’ve also added the Orton effect, matte look, and a vignette. The edited version is this:

ISO 25 f/2.2 4.2mm 1/272 sec

  1. I think the Orton Effect works well here and adds to the “brushed” feeling of the B&B image. There is a good balance between the light and dark areas of the image. My B&W images tend to have a bit too much contrast.

    As much as I like color a picture in black and white has a very special appeal to me. I have always loved these type of pictures. Thanks for sharing this one. 🙂
