Below is the photo I contributed to the June 16 edition of Monochrome Madness and it probably marks the end of my participation in Monochrome Madness, at least for now. It was always meant to be a temporary thing as explained here. So, having participated in about a half dozen of these I have to say I still prefer color photography much more than black and white. Not saying I don’t like B&W, just prefer color.

One of the things I learned with participation in Monochrome Madness is that a type of photo that I thought would never work as black and white might just work after all. I’m talking about sunset photos. Below is sunset photo converted from color to B&W. For me it’s not as appealing as the color version but still it seems to work which kind of surprises me. This sunset was shot with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7; not the complicated D7100.
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you’ll come again when I start my regular, color posts this week. I don’t have much of an inventory yet, and rain has washed me out the past two days, but I’m getting there.
