Well, it's all the exact same picture.

Interesting use of "selective darkroom" techniques. At least that is what it would have been a few years ago. Many have explored using multiple prints, but with differing colors and shades. Never thought of using the technique for bonsai. Seems to me could be very useful for visualizing structure, ramification, overall shape. etc. Thanks and keep us up to date on how you use this. PS what photo software are you using?

Well I prefer the last (colour) photo but that's mostly because you've photo shopped the crown of the tree into a nicer shape Wink 

The first (black & white) image is nice too but I find the contrast too high in the second shot.

Generally I like black & white photography. It can really draw attention to form and texture and in a landscape context trees can look particularly stunning. I love Ansel Adams Jeffrey Pine, (Sentinel Dome) for example.

You don't see many black & white bonsai photos which is a shame. Winter images of deciduous trees really look good.

Thanx all.  


PS what photo software are you using?

I use something called Photofiltre.  There's a Free version. Fairly powerful -- far more so than I am using it. Also a more powerful pay program. French or English on the website.
