Back on a warm February day, Kim and I took a day trip to Antietam National Battlefield. We have been many times, but not since before the 150th anniversary of the battle.
In the winter, even when warm, the battlefields look stark. In the middle of the day, with no sun and few dramatic clouds, there is a dreary feeling. So once again, I was looking at lines, angles and perspectives when composing shots.
I took three shots of the same scene. One shot captured a different perspective, and the other two, while the same point of view, were edited differently.
The one in color, to me, stands out as 21st century. The sepia one looks like it could have been taken by Matthew Brady (or Alexander Gardner)-if I had his talent!
The black and white one may not scream old, but lends more drama than the color photo. This is why many folks love black and white over color. The dramatic feel.
Let me know what you think.
And thanks for reading my blogs and viewing my photos!
