Route 95 or 1 (Federal Highway) to Commercial Boulevard east to the Atlantic ocean. The fishing pier is straight ahead.
The image submitted is probably not my most visually arresting photograph of 2016. However, this one failed sunrise has completely changed the way I look at my body of work. I spent an entire day converting pictures into this new medium to see what creates an effective monochrome photo. Now I'm fascinated with the qualities of light, texture, tone, and shape that create a successful black and white image.
An unproductive sunrise became so much more than expected when the sun's rays shone from behind the magnificent cloud formation. A passing sailboat added punctuation to the scene. This image was okay as a color photo, but wasn't really with saving. I recognized that the image was dynamic and tried various filters on it to no avail. Then the simple conversion to black and white made all the difference. I love color photography and rarely departed from using the full range of possibilities that color affords. Now I've reexamined my approach and have embraced the realm of black and white photography.
