For the last Thursday’s Special in 2017 I am offering you a challenge that IS NOT, and yet it might be the most challenging one so far 😀
I would like you to post again what you consider to be your best shot posted this year.
The end of this year has been a bit more stressful than usual for me, but I am hopeful that things will get better eventually. I would like to thank all my friends here for constant support and positive wishes.
On Sundays I normally publish a photo challenge in black and white that I call Black & White Sunday. I usually come up with a fresh theme for it, but once a month I publish a recurrent (monthly) theme: after and before where you are supposed to show the same photo, regardless of the subject, in both monochrome and colour.
This is a way of encouraging you not only to set your camera to black and white setting, but to shoot in colour and to convert it into black and white in post processing. Hopefully you will enjoy this exercise in seeing and editing. After all it is all about fun. Have a beautiful day!
This is my offering for Cardinal Guzman’s monthly challenge Changing Seasons. Hop over there and see if you can contribute with your entries.
A reminder: If you haven’t seen it already, the new Thursday’s Special is on with the theme minimalism. You may post for it by the 28 December. On the 29 we will be doing retrospective for this year. Happy holidays, everybody!
On the North of Croatian Adriatic there lays a small picturesque town of New Vinodol (Novi Vinodolski) that played an important role in Croatian history. Having to resist the attacks of Turks from the East and those of Venice from the West, the town needed several fortifications. The bellow gallery showcases a photo of the town’s only entirely preserved fort from the 13th century, as well as photos of a 15th century church of Saint Philip and Jacob, a traditional fishing boat, and a statue honouring soldiers from WWII.
Stay tuned for another post from Croatian littoral soon …
