[Motion Étude #1] Plage en blanc et noir

Front Page!! Highest position: 5 on Thursday, June 11, 2009

I spent four wonderful days with my friends. Many many positive thoughts and feelings, it went all great!
I felt really good. I've had the opportunity of shooting a big number of portraits, thanx to my pretty models!

Things are getting better and better, I feel stronger, I got an assignment as official photographer for an exclusive party on June 16th... Moreover, work is keeping my head busy, and there's plenty of partying going on!
Just feeling a little tired!

The shot
When I saw these low clouds, moving water I just couldn't resist and got some nice captures.
(stay tuned for my first experiments with my 10 stops ND)

The Processing


- Converted to black and white using a b&w layer
- Created 2 Overlay layers to adjust light
- Used color balance tool to improve tints
- Raised contrast a little to make the white more punchy
- Added Noise
- Resized
- NO Sharpening this time
- Framing and signature.

Take a look at it, LARGE on Black :

@ You all
Comments, faves and critiques are always welcomed!

I need, as always, honest feedback on this one, especially because it's an 'Étude' on motion. First 'real' attempt on that.

    good B&W picture, i find B&W very charming and i think this really looks great especially the white design formed by the water is amazing.

    by the way, i find mostly all your pics a little dark in shade, a little brightness would make it look more lively. though that's just a suggestion, the pics are good undoubtedly and it pretty much depends on your choice.
