Reverie in Black & White

A couple of weeks ago I incindentally started posting black & white photos on Sundays. Now, I have decided to make it a habit and here it is – a scene from my all time favourite mountain lake Braies (in Dolomites).

Hope you will like Einaudi’s piece Reverie too.

    • Te agradezco mucho Ilargia, y te voy a creer :). Cada dia soy mas exigente con mi fotografia y hoy es un dia que me hace dudar de la calidad de mi trabajo (no precisamente por esta foto sino por unas que tome hace unos dias – las estoy viendo y me desespero :D). Esta foto de Braies es un recuerdo para mi.. Fue la primera vez que me econtre con esta belleza en los Dolomites. Es uno de los lugares que quiero visitar muchas mas veces en mi vida. En general prefiero ir siempre a otro lugar, descubriendo el mundo porque la vida es demasiado corta para volver siempre alo mismo. Lago di Braies es una excepcion πŸ™‚


  1. Incredible Paula, this is a magnificent image it’s absolutely beautiful and I love landscape images in monochrome, for me they work so well. Have a great day πŸ™‚


  2. How can one resist such a mighty picture like that…Oh, mountains. You always fuel my feet and muse.

    Black and white have this exquisite appeal that just make the subject in a photo more dramatic. They give this certain form of subtlety that is simply attractive.


  3. It’s a good idea to regularly post black & white photos. I think I’ll copy your idea.
    B&W makes you see the photos with a different mindset. Great image you’ve posted.


  4. Kyss? Do I get one too? X πŸ™‚
    I love this image, Paual, it’sbrilliant and the music is divine too.
    Big hug

      • Do you do the HDR combination before you convert to B&W or after? I use two different programs in the NIK package for this, and tend to do the HDR first, then convert the completed HDR with Silver Efex Pro. I am never totally satisfied.


        • This one is an old photo taken by canon ixus and it was only an jpg. I did hdr in post processing, but it was a good photo to start with. Now when I use my canon rebel I tend to do bracketing.


  6. I love how you put something else in your photos. This photo of the mountains and lake gives the mind a story to play with in the placement of the boat in the photo. Intuitive, Paula!


    • I wish I had been the one to drag that boat into the frame, but it was just lying there πŸ™‚ Thank you dear Annie. I agree it is an eye-catching photo and very popular among my readers πŸ™‚


  7. I would love to visit the dolomite area, it always looks so inspiring in photos. Really like the B&W here, the boat in the foreground is just perfect.
