Black and White Days

I was challenged by my friend (who happens to be a runner / photographer / creative soul like me), Kyla to a five day Black and White Challenge. So we're going black and white for the next five days.

Here's a classic horse shot, from my daughter's last show of the season:

The great thing about black and white conversions - it takes away all those distracting colored items in the background (in this case, the porta potty is less obvious). Good to know, right?

I still find it hard to determine which shots look good in black and white. I think this one works because it's a simple photo to begin with. Caesar is a great horse to convert to black and white due to his variegated coloring.

More black and white to come!

Black/white works very well with this image, and I agree with you about how it lends itself well to shots that contain distractions that are only accentuated with color.
I look forward to where you take this challenge (just completed one on Facebook with my sister and high school friend).

Good action shot, too. My granddaughter (11) jumps. It makes me a nervous wreck. (I never even noticed the potty...)

I LOVE black and white very much. Nice choice.

Love this photo--the combo of the action of the horse jumping & her face in concentration.
