This photo became quite the hit on Twitter. Probably because it was one of those times when I had to get creative. The original was shot in color, but weather conditions were such that day that the colors looked washed out, making for a “blah” photograph, even though it had an interesting composition.

This is where you get creative. Back in the old days, I used to get creative in the darkroom. Now I get creative with my software. I changed the photo to black and white and viola! The dynamics changed dramatically, and the photo went from dull to dramatic to Twitter hit.

There’s so much more to photography than point and click. It’s about light and shadows, getting the right composition, and, post production.
