This week I am presenting photos in colour and black and white. I have a general preference for black and white and I think showing the original colour version helps describe better than words can, how a colour photograph can be transformed in processing to be a black and white photograph. I have certainly learned more doing this than reading about it. I am also grateful for the helpful comments I have received on my work. In this case the two photographs are very different, but its the same bird on a different branch.

  1. This is an American redstart–a lovely warbler that breeds in the lower 48 states. Chestnut-sided warblers occasionally breed in Northern Illinois but seem to prefer going further north. They are frequent visitors during migration. The chestnut color on their sides borders a white breast, where the orange on the American redstart borders black. Your warbler is affectionately known as the “Halloween” warbler.
