Colored B/W Pics

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge topic for this week is Opposites. And I couldn’t resist posting these photos which are colored but turned out to be black and white! Have a look 🙂

Hovering over an overcast Mumbai
Can’t make out where the sky ends and the sea begins. The dark bits are the green cover, I think
Torrential rains greet us – yellow the only color
But for the red and white it could be a pure black and white pic – dont you think?
Here it is the strips of red, blue, white and yellow to dispel the illusion of a B/W pic

So what do you think? Did it work, any you like? Do let me know!

Thanks for visiting and have a super weekend 🙂

  1. Did these scenes look more colorful to the naked eye? Or were they splashed with a single hue as the camera recorded? I’m trying to imagine what a primitive person might have thought seeing only one color remaining in the rain. Would that color be thought sacred? Would they think the rain had washed away all the rest?

    1. That’s an interesting question Sue because after I clicked it I was surprised to see a BW picture. Clearly You didn’t ‘see’ it as a BW image. And your observation how it could be viewed in is thought provoking. Thanks for your comments

  2. I Loved the last picture, the black and white thought was so beautiful, actually looks like a photoshopped one, but the red colour seems to be superimposed, lovely pics
