I liked the picture of a ramshackle shed on the Allotment Lady's blog so much I knicked it and twiddled it a bit. She was gracious enough to allow me to post it on my blog. You can see the original here. Is it right to completely change the atmosphere of a picture like this? Posted by Picasa

Of course it is right. There is something about B & W photos that have a mystical magical feel to them.

This has now changed from a ramshackle shed into a thing of beauty, I just love it.

I think that I might get it printed and frame it.

The copyright is going is being registered tomorrow!

Great work Mike

Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you like the picture. It will be interesting to see how well it prints out. I only adjusted it for viewing onscreen so it could print out fine or it could be awful. Good luck!

It's amazing how black and white photos can create a very different feel.I really like what you've done and first thought it was a scene from an old film or something.

I'll pop over to see Allotment Lady's blog now.

Great work!
The ramshackle shed revived in your wonderful sense.
The black and white photograph has an abstract part.
The color picture has the color, it is very concrete.
There is no space where the image extends there.
When I always see monochrome photograph ,the image extends.

Nice work! I loved the B&W/darkroom section of my course - the results always took my breath away.

Thank you for your comment Mr B. What course did you do? (I enjoyed your mobile phone shots, by the way - it's great to work to the challenge of a really simple format and very few controls. Composition and subject then seem paramount)
