Mono Monday-Wood and Water

Title-‘Wood & Water’

As the Sun continued to rise, the lovely warm colours that I had been lucky enough to capture on this particular morning ( see here) slowly began to disappear, being replaced by a light blue and rather bland sky. Seeing these worn and battered posts I knew that I had to get a couple of shots of them before heading back towards the WW2 Pill Box. Initially not knowing how to frame this mass of wood, a short wander around to the right revealed this simple composition and I knew straight away that this had the potential for a minimalist black and white image. Processing this in Lightroom took next to no time, using the low contrast Black and white preset then tweaking the clarity slider to soften the image a little. I did consider bleaching out the whites, but for me this made the image too stark and it lost some of its feel. I decided that a slight letterbox simplified things even further, getting rid of unnecessary space from both top and bottom.

I reckon this would be nice as a fine art print using matte paper or perhaps as a gallery wrap canvas.
