11.10.2015 Shadowplay and Vine

By coincidence, I happened to make this image while at Quabbin yesterday and later saw Steve’s post of a similar nature.

Shadowplay-and-Vine-110915-700WebIn creating this, I initially planned it to be in black and white and converted it in SilverEfex Pro.  I often am curious what that conversion looks like if kept it in color and will click the Luminosity option in the Layer Options dropdown.  I liked the effect and kept the color.

  1. It is fun how you two are often on the same wavelength. I like this a lot, and agree that it is very effective with color.

  2. Beautiful in its simplicity. A delicate chain of life that once was- attached to a tree and growing

  3. I love that you left the full range of color; The shadows and objects creates such an interesting composition.

    This works very well and I suspect colour adds depth. Very pleasing.

    I do think the color’s effective, but what most intrigues me is the way the shadows and the cracks in the stone mimic one another. It brings to mind Cohen’s “Anthem,” and the famous line about there being a crack in everything. As Cohen says, “that’s how the light gets in.”

    Your title brought up another title: Tom Wolfe’s 1970s book, Mauve Gloves and Madmen, Clutter and Vine. You certainly have a vine, and a bit of a clutter of shadows. Whether there was a madman wearing mauve gloves, only you know for sure.

  6. Do you happen to know what kind of plant that was?
