I had a fun time this evening at a nearby community named Hidden Springs which is about 5 miles north of Boise in the foothills. It was twilight and getting darker by the minute.
This tree has been a focus of mine for quite some time and I envisioned a photo with stars in the sky and the lights of the community shining from its windows. That wasn’t to be on this particular evening. The sky was somewhat cloudy, so no stars. Fulfilling my photographic vision will have to be a project for another day.
I did take about a dozen shots, ranging anywhere from 4 seconds to 30 seconds in duration. This particular one was 4 seconds in length. This is nothing like it looked to my eye in the field, as it was very dark, but the more I played with it on the computer the more it became a daytime scene.
My wife never likes it when I go black and white on a subject. She says that it sucks the life out of the image. I just laugh and she gives me “the look.” 🙂
Here is the same image as it came out of the camera.
What do you think? Do you like the black and white, or the original color image better?
