First monochrome, then back to colour
Over on the other blog it is Monochrome Madness 3-1, and, as I usually do, I put up a photo, the following one.
I took this last week when I was exploring some areas around central Victoria. This is the dam wall for the dam at Cairn Curran Reservoir. It seemed like a good chance to use my filters and do a long exposure.
The Formatt Hitech Firecrest 16 ND filter was used for this four minute exposure.
Long exposures are great in monochrome, but I don’t believe it is the only way to do them. I like seeing how they also look in colour. I get a choice then. I have never been a firm believer that black and white is so much better than colour.
In this case, perhaps the monochrome is better.
It is interesting to do. I like getting the two and doing the comparisons. It is a technique that I’m working on and the results work sometimes, and other times, like this time, they don’t.
