#551|MONOCHROME THREAD|POST YOURS|23Jul2021-30Jul2021

One of the oldest threads on DPReview - and still going strong! Thank you for the record braking number of excellent posts in thread #380. As discussed, we are going to extend the Monochrome tread going forward and keep it running for the entire week - Friday to Friday. I'm also *very* encouraged by the amount of interactive comments picking up again lately. I'm certain we can keep this MC thread valuable for a lot of people going forward!

The world always looks a little different in shades of grey- or of sepia, or of platinum, or of...Post one monochrome or more, taken any time, of any subject and processed any way you like.

If you like Monochrome please leave one or two others a comment as it is always interesting to know how you feel, see or experience images of others. This is a friendly request, not a rule.

*So...................*How does the world look to you?*

Re: Dirty Big Heron

The GBH is looking a bit ominous, or perhaps just grumpy. Well done!

Too late to remove the errant 'e' at the end of Vigur.

A hike in the hills surrounding Lake Uvas

Took along my Sony A6300 which has had the CFA removed from the sensor so that it only shoots monochrome images.

Lake Uvas in Santa Clara County, California

Trails in the hills nearby

Poison Oak along the paths.

I like how the bark on the Manzanita bush looks like tiny scrolls.

Some trees, often the California Live Oaks, have lichens hanging from the branches

Cropped closeup of the lichens

Star Thistle seen everywhere

The people have more grit than I can imagine, particularly the man carrying the load in the first shot.

Re: A hike in the hills surrounding Lake Uvas

Interesting to see what you can do with a fully monochrome camera. Clearly you can do a lot.

Thank you.  Yes, it can do a lot.  I had no idea of just how good it was going to be until I started using it.  And converting a color image to B&W just doesn't compare.
