Friday Fences

I've been experimenting with black and white, using old photos in my archives.  This is an unusual fence, really a railing, used to outline the boardwalk in a Cypress Swamp in South Carolina.


To see more Friday Fences, go here.

  6. I enjoy the B&W look of this pic. The Cyprus trees cast nice reflections in the water, giving the scene a nice touch!

  7. This is a great B &W photo. I like the trees and the lines of the boardwalk and fence rail. I suppose there might be alligators in that water?? I wouldn't want to find out! Pamela

  11. I love color but this really does work well in B&W and the reflections adds drama.

  13. I think the lines of the trunks are accentuated in B&W making this a neat photo.

  16. I am the grinch as far as black and white photos go. Not that I always prefer color, but that black and white is better only if you have really good separation and contrast in the photograph.

  17. Nice shot. I'd like to see the same photo in colour to compare the two. The reflections are beautiful.
