This will be the last b&w post for a minute or two as I’m starting to miss colors but then again you just never know when something will appear that just shines through in b&w. We shall see. This was taken early in spring this year at the local conservatory during the orchid show. I set my camera to fire off multiple shots and was able to capture a series of droplets falling and splashing. Not sure but I’m guessing the fountain is cast iron but whatever it is, it was very pretty to see it standing there bubbling and gurgling while surrounded by all of those beautiful orchids.
Levels, conversions, brushes and layer masks later….this came out and I was pleased with it. In b&w you can really sense the hard cold metal of the fountain; sense the wetness and see the grain and cracks in it as well as some of the ripples in the water are more defined.
