My photo blog… visual thoughts around me.

People talk about what makes a truly superior b/w image… well look no further. Actually look into this comp and find your eye moving in and staying there. This is what it is all about and it deserves a second and third look. Photo and blog post by Mike Baker at

I am finding my eye is drawn more and more towards black and white for landscapes, particularly when the rolling hills and mist are composed of such subtle tones.

  1. I don’t call myself “monochromejunkie” for no reason. 🙂 I adore B&W’s- I see not only B&W here, but flecks of red, yellow, green, and blue- in very subtle tones. I particularly like the exposure in the dip of the valley here. (Mist) Very pretty..

  5. Beautiful…. I loved this place -and Blue Mountains – and the colors of the landscape. But there is a tendency that we often do not try to see motives as this without colors: It is often beautiful in a completely different way ….
