I love this sort of shot - the hallway, a tree lined path, etc. - there is something about the solitude and the invitation to walk down and see what is on the other side. The light in this photo is perfect and I love how the black and white adds a sense of drama. Thank you for sharing Clairejustine!
Another instance of amazing lighting and dramatic black and white. I love the detail in the glass and the imperfections. If you have not read the story behind this you should check it out, it brought a tear to my eye. Thank you for sharing it with us!

This shot is breathtaking! I love the eye contact with the camera she has and how you can see an innocence, but yet a wiseness. Not to mention the catchlights in her eyes and the light in her hair. Beautiful softness with the black and white. Thank you for linking up Michelle!

For my photo today, I am sharing a photo I took following my brother's birthday celebration on Saturday. After we finished at Alki we headed to REI (his favorite store) where I got the coolest camera backpack I will share later this week and then we headed to Kirkland for one more store stop. We ended the day with a visit to the Marina Park in the middle of downtown. It was amazingly windy, but the sun was shining and the park was full of life. On one of the docks there was a line of lights. I was fascinated by the sun shining through the light from behind. My goal was to capture the effect that enthralled me as well as the lines of the light. I think the silhouette worked out well and I love how the imperfections in the light can be seen and give some grit to the photo. In processing I did a color edit where I worked with the basic settings to make the blue more vibrant and a black and white edit where I wanted to play up the light. I am not sure which I am more partial to, what do you think?
Settings: ISO 200, 50mm, ss1/3200, f/8.0 (full manual, sunlight wb)
