Justine Gordon's Black & White November flickr group. The real challenge is to find subjects with enough contrast between light and dark to make a striking black and white image and the photograph above just doesn't have that.
I took it during my afternoon walk with Misty in some nearby woods. I had this view in mind when I went out and knew I'd be able to frame the farm with close up foliage. The leaves in the foreground work really well, but the landscape beyond is made up of too many mid-tones to translate well into black and white.
So - a learning curve and, hopefully, the beginning of a journey of discovery during November.
And I finally clicked on that Buy Now button and enrolled on an online course with BetterPhoto.com on street photography starting Wednesday. Can't wait - although with a certain amount of trepidation!
