Don't Let Go.

    Can Black & White be used to represent a relationship? It's either right or wrong, love or lust, need or desire. What do you think?

      ACE!! Choosing b/w was a great choice. It actually adds a warmth to the photo. I also see like a trust/bond being given between the two.

      This photo went wonderfully with a poem we posted here:

      I think you have communicated this relationship and a story along with it. I like that very much and am glad you tried. But the photo qualities - compo and tones do not wow me. I can't decide about this one, and may come back to it later.

      I'm happy it's made you think. I don't think the composition is too bad, however, I'm not so happy with the tones. A lot of the texture and detail on the hands had to be burned in.

      Only color can be used to represent a relationship.

      No, ricko, not only color.

      There's other options too, such as bacon, green chili,
      jelly beans, machetes, oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico,
      human casualties, high cell phone bills, and marmalade.

      It has no sauce (or bacon).

      The only thing I don't like about it is the flatness of the tones. I still don't know that it's exciting enough to save even if the tones were perfect though.

      Lacks bacon, green chili, jelly beans, machetes, oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, human casualties, high cell phone bills, and/or marmalade.

      I think anything black and white would almost always look better if done in colour.
      Certainly lacks both breast and bacon, but I'll save it anyway. It's been that kind of day.

    13. samcaplat 46 months ago | reply

      I must agree, I rarely use black and white, and when I do, I am generally disappointed with the results. I'm much more of a colour photographer. The reason I used black and white is because I premeditated the concept of black and white against relationships.

      Thanks for the save, though. Although, "saveme4"?

      Should that have been 5?

      I like it too and I thought to soft save it. But I will not do this on my last day :-)

      (in the beginning I thought they were the hands of the same person. I like this slight confusion created. Realizing now that there are two hands I find it a little more cheesy. A good photo anyway)

      Colour or b&w, it makes no difference with the composition which to me feels like there's some distance between them - maybe they like their individual space. Where they are connected - the hand-wrestle - hands down the guy and his dirty thumb has won.
