Into the light 2

Sydney May 2013 (2 photos)

I was out for a walk late in the afternoon and the sun was setting. I saw this glorious patch of light streaming through the trees. So I stopped and chose a suitable vantage point. I had a 90mm manual focus lens and prefocussed to the spot I wanted. Then all I had to do was wait for someone to walk into the light… “welcome to my parlour said the spider to the fly”.

I’ll leave you to decide if you prefer black and white or colour.

It’s the last week of Autumn here and this is the third consecutive instalment of my series of autumn colour and light photos. If you missed the earlier 2 in the series, just look at my last 2 posts until you reach Follow the yellow brick road? .

    Unusually for me I actually prefer the colour with this Picture, but it’s a good shot either way. πŸ™‚

  2. I really noticed the difference between the colored and black and white. One does focus differently on each picture. The brilliant colors are stunning and warm and inviting, but something is missing. With the black and white I get more depth/perception of what I think you want us to see.

    Well, no deep thoughts here. lol
    I just wanted to tell you I tried to understand.
    Several bloggers I follow include the black and white and it is nice. I only point and click. But I often use the Gimp to modify pictures. Usually I color them up, but recently I have been desaturating and the result is pleasing.
    Do what you enjoy. )

    • Thank you m’lady.

      The b&w highlights the textures and tones and gives a different emphasis to the photo. The warmth of the light is what made me take the photo.

  3. Same here! I hardly ever like colour pictures, but this one I prefer! I think its the second one of yours that I like in colour more than bw.
    Brilliant as always! And by the way, we got some sun here. Finally!

    Your photos are truly special. You know when you’ve taken a great picture when the black and white looks even better than the color version… Very inspired!
