Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge: # 23 Black and White: The Basics

All the photos were taken in colour and in RAW format then post processed to black and white.

The first photo was taken late in the afternoon in the Ca’D’Oro in Venice.  The shadows of the beautiful gothic pillars contrast with the white walls and the sculpture add texture to the pictureVenesië 45 B&W

A piece of pomegranate. It has lots of texture and the contrast between the red pips and white skin works in black and white pomegranate 1

  1. I love your Venice pictures especially – partly because I’ve been recently to Venice and at the time turned some of the photos into black and white (although this was before Cee’s challenge came out). 🙂 The door photo works really great in black and white!… I have taken some pictures of the balcony of Ca’ d’Oro too, I think that balcony works a treat in colour or black and white both! But I don’t remember the statue that you’ve go, maybe because I was looking outwards at the canal.

    The flower is also great. 🙂
