The Vibrant, and the not so Vibrant
The two photo challenges I participate in, are dramatically different this week.
First, The Daily Post photo prompt is Vibrant. My first thought on this was a good sunrise, or sunset shot. Then we had the campfire the other night, and my shots of the fire were well, Vibrant.
Since I have never tried to photograph a campfire before, I was pretty happy with the way these turned out.
The Dogwood 52 week challenge is the opposite this week. A black and white landscape is the photo prompt. I know that to get a good black and white photo you need lots of texture, and contrast. The other morning was perfect with just a few clouds in the sky.
The craggy rocks and cactus were perfect too.
I took the photo into Photoshop and added a couple of texture layers. This was the photo I posted in the Dogwood 52 group, and a couple people felt the textures detracted from the photo. I can see that. I like them both really, for different reasons.
Which one do you prefer?
