Photo of the Month

Selected by the TCCC Members

 

January 2015 Photos

••∞••

Black & White

Ken McKeown - Giant Leap

During the Ice Festival in St Joseph in February 2012, I shot this finished ice carving with a Canon 5D Mark ll, 24 to 105 Canon lens with settings at 1/60 at f13, 92mm, ISO 400.  Ice carving was made crystal clear by the carver using a torch to “fire” the ice.  Ice carving was photographed as a very tight close up to eliminate all items in the surrounding area.  Also it was photographed against a dark red brick background.

Color photograph converted to Black&White using Elements 11 with topaz b&w software.  After that conversion used topaz simplify 4 plug in, using line and ink, white line only.  Weather that day was very overcast, so no shadows, plus the carving had a lot of details, which made the Black&White lines really come alive.

Color

Ken McKeown - Lightning Speed

While driving through Newberry, in the U.P., I spotted a Canadian National Railway freight train parked at a railroad siding. The train did not have many cars, only item that I photographed was the engine and a railroad flatbed car loaded with logs.

Engine was photographed with a Canon 7D with a Canon 18 to 200mm lens.  Photo taken at 1/500 at f13, ISO at 400.  Color image changed to Black&White in Topaz B&W and then used Topaz Glow using blazing neon for the finished image.


 
Special Thank You to those who did vote, still can't believe I received both Black&White and Color.

...

These photos are special, because they are chosen by the TCCC members themselves.
Starting with March 2013, we are asking the members to select what they consider the best "Photo of the Month", a Color and a Black and White photograph, chosen from the Prints and Digital Slides Judged to be Honors in that months competition.

Which one would you pick?

Go to the Honor Image Galleries and see which ones you pick as the best, would these be your selections?
