A B/W Photo from Leinekvernene

Mr. Diffley recently wrote an article about “Thinking Black & White” when you shoot photos. This inspired me to find an image that I think works well as B/W, so I found this from the ancient grinding mills at Leine.

  1. Ah, you are a good student (wide grin). Good subject matter here with the detail the shed provides and the trees. Two suggestions: I may have brightened up the shed to make it stand out more as the main subject. And, may be added just a little more foreground to lead into the scene.

    Thanks for the nice comment and mentioning!!

    I love shooting black & white. Post processing is made easier with Nik software Silver Efex Pro. Folks can download it & try it. Plus, it is soooo easy to learn.

  2. When I clicked to enlarge the photo it just made it feel so comfortable and soft. Almost as if I had put on sunglasses on a bright day and the view was softened. Strange effect, but that’s how it felt to me. Great photo!

    • Glad you like my headers :) Would be awesome to go there during the summer for a swim in the dam under the waterfall (there’s a waterfall there, but it’s not visible on this photo).

  4. I like both versions equally but I think Mr. D. is right. Most people will favour the one with the brightened mill.

    The mill in the woods is a great subject of focus. Print and frame this one, Cardinal. Market it. It’s really good.
