Title: Photo Art Filtering (Part - 4)
Post by: Shortsighted on July 11, 2020, 11:39:04 am
Eliminating the gray scale (filter or otherwise) and reducing the image to mostly black and white can sometimes get your attention more emphatically than the straight photo might strike you. In this way the basic shape(s), fields or geometry cannot help but grab the viewer.

Not sure whether these count.

That is sort of the idea but an even more extreme culling of gray might be
required with this photo to create a rough sketch result. I'm not sure if it
will work. I may give it try if I have some time. With your permission.

Very honoured if you use my pic!

Taking the pen & ink filter theme to its conclusion, as I see it, I offer you
this result.

Wow!!! What a pro can do is always beyond my imagination.

I will never ask the three dollars again.

You're not thinking of becoming Goth, are you?
A Black & White warbler in B&W is just cruel.
It goes through all the trouble of avoiding colour
and then you go and defeat the achievement by
showing you can do better. All nonsense aside,
thinking in B&W and photographing in B&W is a
very good exercise that will teach you to see more
successfully. It should be mandatory if I was running
a photography school.
