Theme Thursday: Contrast


Stacy challenged us with "contrast" as the theme this week, so I decided to offer two examples of the same photo.  The first is a SOOC image which demonstrates the contrast of color against the kids' faces and the dark background.  I also converted to B & W and came up with different contrasting results.  In the second, the contrast of faces with the rest of the photo without the color lets the viewer focus more on the expressions rather than everything else.  Can you believe such concentration on a Star Wars action figure? May the force be with us all :)...

I love both of them! Nice Job. Yes, it is hard to believe they have such concentration on their toys, isn't it? :)

My kids would concentrate on a Star Wars figurine like that, too :-)

Great contrasts...I like the color one the best.

I love the focus on the eyes, when you enlarge it. Great contrast!

Cute picture. I'm glad there is still a love for star wars in the younger generations. :)

Great photo, I do like the B&W. I was going to post the original but, well, I forgot.

That's great seeing the difference - they are both wonderful - too funny they were loving the Star Wars! Very sweet.

My husband still gets that focused on a Star Wars or Lord of the Rings ANYTHING!

Great shots!

Great shots - you're right, the black and white really does draw your attention to what they are so focused on!

Neat photo. Wonderful expressions. The colour one for me please. I loved their eyes when I looked at the enlarged version. But little faces against dark backgrounds are a winner every time.

I love both of them, too. They each offer just a little different interpretation - but they are so cute in both!!

i love those and i enjoyed reading about your camera in the above post. you are right, i thought i would go back and forth between my point and shoot because it was smaller but i never use it now that i got my dslr.
