Phoneography Challenge

I came across this lovely challenge thanks to another blogger, as often happens!

This blog is called Lens and Pens by Sally. Here let me let her give you the instructions:

Here’s how the Phoneography Challenge works:

1. Each Monday a theme will be posted. You can publish your entry at any time, preferably on Monday or by Sunday of the week of the theme. Please add any information about the entry (apps, brand of phone…)… for the rest of the info and how to participate click the link!

So I thought I’d have a try at this weeks challenge: Phoneography Challenge: Black and White

Lake Garda

I usually use my Oympus to take photographs, but sometimes it’s just handier to pull our my cel phone, a Nokia 202, which is not the newest of the Nokia line, but it has the advantage of still having a proper key pad along with touch screen!

I elaborated this with Picasa 3 using the filtered black and white option after I had finished elaborating the color photo, which is this:

And here are some more examples of what you can do with a phone!

  1. Loved the photo! Although I do think it could benefit more from a little bigger bw contrast, but it is beautiful just as it is. The contrast between the tree and the mountains is just gorgeous and very telling.

    • You’re prbably right Oloriel…I was going to boost the black and white, but to tell the truth I got so frustrated with my computer this morning I just posted asap. Thanks, for your comment! 🙂

  3. Welcome to the fun–your image is engaging on many levels. I really like being drawn into the image and discovering the mountains. Works far better in monochrome. A quick note to let you know that there will not be a challenge next Monday due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. Hope to see you on 02 December for the next challenge: Nature.

    • Thanks for informing me of the break in the challenge! I’m glad you enjoyed the photo and it was a pleasure to be part of the challenge! See you in December!
