The Weekend in Black and White.


 Sun on a brass tray.

The shadow is sharp, but the tray is blurred.
Maybe I'll do better another time.


Many more black and white photos from all over the world can be found through the links on the Home Page.

I actually like the contrast in the crisp shadow and the softer tray focus. Cool shot.

I love those details in the etching!!

To get them both sharp, you need a smaller aperture, which pretty much guarantees the need for a tripod

The contrast of the light and dark in this picture is lovely. The shadow of the tray is so nice. So much texture and detail in this shot. genie

I see nothing wrong with having the tray blurred and the shadow sharp and well defined.
