[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Inspired by an image posted on TL a couple of weeks ago by a member called bri, who posted a shot of a bay in the north of England in B/W, I decided to experiment with an image of my own. This was taken in colour of a very bright Sunday afternoon at Daymer Bay, north Cornwall. I was never happy with the original version and felt the colours were too saturated so decided to see how it would look in B/W with a bit more contrast. I am quite interested in how some ordinary everyday images seem to convey more mood and drama when converted to B/W.

PP work - converted to B/W, contrast and levels altered, sharpened, resized and border added.

Hi Joy,
A nice B&W shot of this vast beach with perfect lighting. Good contrast! It looks like an HDR treated picture.
I like the movement in the scene with people enjoying their day!
Well done for this neat work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Joy,

A very nice picture this and one which I suspect is better in black & white than in colour. It has a nice nostalgic look to it and reminds me of picture postcards from the 1950's - what a shame there's not some chap in the picture with a knotted handkerchief on his head!

Kind Regards,


Hello Joy,
I still am an unconverted lover of B&W - not that there is anything wrong with colour. What a fabulous image with so much atmosphere!! Well done!!

I really like this shot presented in b&w. I think there is nice lighting with wonderful tones throughout. Feels like we are in another time period. Good composition and detail. So pretty. TFS, Lori

HI Joy..nice black and white shot....great tones and focus.
