5 Day Black and White Challenge – Day 4

I can’t believe it is already the fourth day of my “5 Day Black and White Challenge”. Again, the rules are: (1) publish a black and white photo every day for 5 days (2) invite someone to participate each day.

I would like to invite Roberta from Words like Honey to participate the challenge. Roberta is someone I would like to hang out with. She is warm, and talented. We can do a lot of fun things together, I am sure!

Last year when we visited Chesapeake Bay area, we saw a man cast-net fishing. It was the first time seeing this for all 5 of us. I bet the guy had never dreamed that one day he would become a superstar — four cameras aimed at him, trying to catch his every movement. 😉

      Good morning, Sally. I think I like tis one in B&W better than in color. Nowadays I always try to convert my photo to B&W just to see. If I don’ like it, I delete it. 😉

    Very nice composition, Helen! Maybe it’s just me but the horizon is a little crooked. Haha.

      Thanks, Adhika. Not sure. How do you decide where is the horizon line with all those grasses right on the line? I went back to the Photoshop Element and choose a line, which I think should be the horizon line. I did 3 times: once it lowered the left side, once higher and once it remain the same. Can you show me? Please…
