Playing with monochrome

This photograph was taken in France a few years ago and I came across it whilst looking for something that would make a monochrome conversion. I really enjoy creating monochrome pictures, though it isn’t what I do most, so probably doesn’t come as naturally as montage… but it is very refreshing to create something where it’s the tones and lines that are the most important feature and not where the story is most important…it’s also quicker 🙂

and the next shot on the same day…

I just love the cloud patterns in the next image – makes the whole thing a bit confusing so it takes a while to decipher.
