Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Textures

Black and white perfect to show off textures. Nothing makes stone, wood, brick, or basketry look crisper than monochrome. I especially love sepia for brick and bark. Here are a few examples.

    • Thanks. Last winter’s icicles were HUGE. People got killed by falling icicles. Those were just inches outside my office window. I merely opened the top of the window and shot. I don’t think they melted until March.

        • I think I looked at it and thought it was too complicated for ME too. I stick with what I know and which does the job. I probably understand less than 5% of Photoshop’s capabilities, but I can do what I need to do. I have some filter sets that do other stuff and since I’m not big on over-processing, there’s a lot of stuff I don’t need.
