5 Day Photo Challenge Day 4 – In a New York Minute

Well, not quite a minute.  This image was taken last year when we were in NYC and I decided to try some longer exposure shots while in all of that hustle and bustle of Times Square.  The original color version can be seen here on the post At the Corner of 7th and 42nd.  I’ve found that when you have an image with some definite color and tone contrasts the conversion to black and white really pops.  And now back to the challenge…..

The rules for the 5 Day Black and White Challenge are:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

Today I nominate Bob of InfraredRobert for the challenge.  His urbex photos are just astounding!

    Pretty cool scene! I really like the movement of people around that makes the picture feels alive! Great shot Teri!

    I agree with Indah. The photo shows movement very well. I wonder if we would get the same feeling if it were in color. This black and white thing really does change a photo and sometimes for the better.
    On a side note. My nephew just got a really cool computer job with Etsy. He just moved to NYC straight out of college. He loves it!

    Great shot to give the feeling of being in the hustle of NYC…
    Thank you for the compliment on my work, although the challenge does not fit into my posting plan (yes, I do have a plan) – but perhaps when I return with a load of IR images I can give it a shot…

      Thanks and I really would love to see even just one of your images in monochrome to see the difference 🙂

    love the angle of this shot as it adds to the mayhem and rush that is NYC!

      And it was mayhem that night! I had to find a spot where I wouldn’t get bumped into by anyone or anything. Thanks 🙂
