There's been a whole lot of emphasis on black and white photography this month in my internet photography circles - Urban Muser's In the Picture theme for March, Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers class & today's Texture Tuesday B&W eDition, and Digital Photography School laying down a Black and White Portrait Challenge.
Today's image will do double duty fulfilling my Beyond Layers assignment and today's Texture Tuesday challenge. For the image, I used Kim's "Paper Love" texture (lightly), and lots of Topaz Labs filters to get the look I wanted.
Oh, but spring is upon us and color is popping everywhere now and at Beyond Layers we are bringing some color back into the picture this week, with a different color featured each day. Monday's color was green and since I didn't have time to shoot (and won't) I am submitting this image of the clover with water droplets that was the base of Saturday's St. Patty's Day Greeting.
Today's Beyond Layers color challenge is Yellow, and since my hydrangea and the picture in today's image were both yellow I'm going to leave you with the image processed in its fully yellowy goodness. Bring on the color!
All of today's images were shot with my Nikon 50mm f/1.4 Lens
The inspiration for today's title came from Gary Go's song "Black And White Days
