Downtown Edmonton – Images in Black and White
On Friday September 24 at noon I was walking around downtown Edmonton, with my Nikon. Between the colors of autumn, clear blue skies, architecture and reflections off water and highrise windows, I found lots to take pictures of. In most of the photos, color was an important part of the image that I captured but a few jumped out at me as obvious black and white images. So I removed the color, adjusted the contrast etc. with Capture NX2 and here are five of my favorites:

The sky this afternoon was a beautiful deep blue and virtually cloudless. This one little cloud stood out. It looked pretty striking against the blue but I immediately thought about converting to black and white using a “color filter” to turn the blue to near-black. This is pretty much what I envisioned – I’m happy with it!
