Black and White Photography, New York, Photography



Originally I shot image in in color but when I looked at the image on the LCD screen something was missing. I decided to switch the camera to black and white mode and apply the internal red filter to accentuate the clouds and textures of the building and now I think it looks correct. In case you didn’t notice there is a sundial on the building and the time was right on. I guess there is something to be said for ancient technology. This is part of the mansion at Planting Fields Arboretum. I hope you enjoy.

Fujifilm X-E2 and Fujinon XF 18mm R lens – 1/1500 @ f/5.6 – ISO 200

    The way your processed this accentuates your natural talent. The arches are so beautiful and not at all diminished by that amazing sky!


  2. Looks good. I think the B&W was a great choice for this type of image. Sundials are wonderful. A little problematic on a cloudy day, but even a Rolex breaks down from time to time! 😉


  3. Good call on that Joe, works beautifully. That’s a rather maniacal looking sundial with a stake right in a clownish mouth. I guess they were both technically adept and a also had a bit of dark humour going on.


    • I think people with this much money have some sort of dark humor. This was part of someone’s Mansion before it was sold or donated to the state and now it’s called Planting Fields Arboretum.


    • Thank you very much 🙂 I have been a lover of black and white since my early film days, there is just something about it I can’t explain. Have a great day 🙂
