Stripping Down – Picture Fall, day 11

No, not that kind of stripping! 😉

I’ll admit to being a little disappointed at first with today’s photo prompt.  We were supposed to look for light showing off the texture of the photo subject, then strip away the color in photo editing software.  I’ve never been a big fan of black and white photography, but I can appreciate it when it is done well.  Because I love vibrant color so much, finding subjects that do well in black and white is a weakness for me.  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I took many pretty, colorful, fall pictures on my visit to Pickity Place, and was disappointed I couldn’t use one for yesterday’s prompt.  Then I remembered a shot I took yesterday that pretty much screamed texture:

Picture Fall, day 11

Bonus for me, since they are sheep, I didn’t lose much by removing the color.  And I can admit, I think the texture of the wool is slightly enhanced with the lack of color.

Now, how about that Pickity slideshow I mentioned yesterday?  Here it is, bursting with color!
