Black... & White Mood

Saint Philip's Church, French Quarter, Charleston, SC

Saint Philip's steeple rises above a gated brick wall
along Philadelphia Alley in Charleston's French Quarter.
The day was bright and sunny, but when the image is 
rendered in black & white the mood becomes mysterious.

  1. I agree Doug. The desaturation of this imate does indeed give it a very mysterious feel. Looks like a setting for a suspense/thriller. I can hear beat of a drum gradually getting louder.

  5. this is NEVER an ordinary bw photo .... it's EXTRAORDINARY - could be an infrared exposure, or a heavy use of what we used to call a red filter ...
    however you did it, doug, this is incredibly beautiful and impressive in its tonal range !!!

  10. The contrast between the three textures... the brick wall, tree bark and the smooth plaster work of the tower creates a superb interaction - along with the slight IR effect.Superb Image.
