Week 8 Monochromatic

Focus on Life Week 8...   I decided to play around with  old photos for this week.  It was either that or a close up of a snow bank... which would have been a really depressing thing to have to do after 17 days in Costa Rica... 
The original picture was taken last July just as the fog was lifting with my new smart phone...  Not sure what I did to the picture today to reverse it when I removed the colour... oops!

Thought this picture might look neat with the colour removed too... Clouds also taken last July! The cloud looks a bit like a colourless rainbow!
And last but not least 'Llanos de Cortez' a waterfall in Costa Rica...  You can swim in the pool and walk behind the falls.  Lovely place for a picnic!

I used picmonkey to transform all my colour pics to B & W, most of the pictures were pretty monocramtic to start with!

The waterfall is my favorite, but really like the boat picture also.

Claire said...

that sky is amazing! looks like a giant brush has been washed across it - really works in b&w!!

Adrienne said...

The first 2 photos have an eerie feeling to me at first but I like them. Hmm. I love waterfalls!

koko said...

Wow the clouds are amazing! I love the boats too, they look so peaceful.

Courtney said...

Awesome! I love the first two - the boats with the fog lifting - so peaceful.

Stacie said...

I love the touches of color in the first photo. Fantastic shot. And the sky is incredible in the other photo. The streaky clouds probably show up better in B&W than in the original. And a waterfall! Doesn't get any better than that.

Your colourless rainbow is fab

Tanya said...

Those are lovely phpots. I do like the one with the cloud rainbow. It is perfect in black and white.

Karen Williams said...

The almost mirror images of the sea and boat are a lot of fun.

While your cloud looks like a bridge across the sky - it's so distinct.

Love the waterfall! All the pictures give something to the black and white experiment!

Becky Pancake said...

Great photo choices. Thanx for sharing your vacation with us. The idea was to see things in black and white. you did it well.

Annette said...

Really amazing photos! The first one looks very natural in B&W and the sky in the second one is incredible!

Janet Bocciardi said...

That cloud is indeed strange! cool.

The boat makes a beautiful photo but I am intrigued with the sky picture. It is so unusual and strangely eerie!

Actually I think the sky lost some of it's dram when I made it B&W!
