Travel and photography go together so very well…here I have taken a few of my Antigua photos with a focus on texture, and played with contrast and black and white. What do you think?
Drift wood – I love the weather worn look of drift wood on the beach. The colour photo has not been enhanced at all….it is in original format.
The only post production here is the conversion from colour to B&W.
Starting to get a little more creative….
…pumped up the contrast in the B&W. Love the texture in this shot!
Love the little lizards…hard to resist feeding them as they came to the balcony every day…
Think the colours of the little guy need to be represented here….even with enhanced contrast, he doesn’t quite stand out in black and white.
Back down at the beach…shot a few of the palm tree – for me, a true symbol of the tropical holiday…
What do you think….colour or black and white?
Just a simple adjustment like colour to black and white with a little added contrast …. do the two image pairs evoke the same feeling of tropical travel for you?
