It was back to some photos taken up in the Mallee for Monochrome Wednesday this week and I have converted one of the images of a salt lake.
Monochrome Wednesday – a salt lake
The salt lakes around my mums are amazing. It is one of the reasons that I love going up there to take photos.
Again, it is an area that I really want to highlight, and want to keep the location to myself. The last thing I want is to be part of a problem with too many people going there and ruining it. As we have seen in so many places around the world.
So I have converted this to monochrome, but I put a slight tone over the top. I’m enjoying the slight tones. I like the hint of colour. I also tried a tone I haven’t used for a while and I have to credit FATman Photos for the idea. I saw him using it first, so thank you Adrian for that.
Doing this in monochrome is something I have wondered about. They are stunning in colour, but taking that away really brings out the desolation of the area. In some ways you can get a lot more of a mood for some things. That doesn’t mean I will be working in this exclusively, but it can be good for some things.
It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you enjoy the monochrome images. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook group, TPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
