In the Distance

I have many images to fit this challenge, mostly taken locally on our Fylde coast.

I’ve chosen some of my favourites for this week’s Black & White Challenge.

These are lovely shots to illustrate distance. Can I ask, did you Shoot them in black and white originally, or did you edit them to be black and white? As a rookie photographer, does it make any difference?

    Thanks Georgie for your interest.
    Yes, it’s reckoned it’s always better to shoot in colour then change to monochrome. Though there are some new cameras now (Fuji’s latest ones for example)that apparently have very good film simulation settings.
    Sometimes you want to mess about with the colours/saturation/ shadows/highlights to get more contrast before converting to B&W.

      Thanks for this info. I must experiment with my camera more, and find out what it can actually do….

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
