A Photo a Week Challenge: From Color to B&W

As Nancy Merrill said on her blog for a photo a week challenge,

“With so many photo editing programs out there, it’s really easy to manipulate and change images on the a computer. One of the basic changes we can make is to change a photo from color to black and white.”

Yea, editing a photo before posting it to blog is a must for me. I used to edit a photo at picmonkey.com, an online photo editor that very easy to use, with many effects, frames, text, and filters.

So, here’s mine.

BeachI took this picture at Sebuku Island, an island in Sunda Strait. This island is close to Krakatoa, the most famous volcano mountain in Indonesia.

Beach BWAnd here’s the photo after choosing Black and White Effect.

Beach with holga effectI also tried other effect that can change the color to B&W, and this effect is Holga.

beach HDRHow do you think about this last B&W. When I see it, I feel back to the past where it decades or maybe a hundred years ago. This is the result after combining B&W and HDR effects.

  1. Which one do you prefer? It’s a stunning shot and I totally prefer the original. I’m no big fan of editing though I appreciate what is possible these days. That’s why my shots are a little “ragged”. I don’t have the patience or time. Nice meeting you, anyway. 🙂

  2. Untuk fun pictures di blog aku suka pakai picmonkey gini drpd plixr, lebih mudah. Dulu yang ngasih tau mak Isnuansa. Tapi utk foto jualan tetep pake photoshop
