Sunday Selections--Straight out of the camera--sort of

These are straight out of the camera shots--yes, really! 

My camera has function settings called White Board and Black Board, and from what I can tell it reduces all the dark tones to black and the light tones to white and vice versa..

My favorite is the tree--it's a great big sycamore and has gorgeous mottled and peeling bark.  In this shot all the distracting detail is removed and the massive strength of the trunk and limbs is clear.

  2. I'd forgotten about those settings, Linda. Looks reall effective (I'm rather partial to the steps).

  5. Is that a new header image? Or has it been here for a while and I have only just noticed it now? My favourite photo are the steps. I cant say why, I just like them the best. cheers Kim

  6. I'm with Kim I think. The steps have a air of expectancy, adventure in waiting feel. All of them are amazing though - I don't think it is a feature my camera has (will have to investigate).

    Black and white -- I always loved it so much.
