About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

i-mag's color in black-and-white photo challenge


Samal Vinta

"One of the challenges in photography is how to render a colorful world in, uhm, black-and-white. The challenge is to make the viewer fill in the blanks, so to speak - to make him see the colors in his mind while viewing a black-and-white photography, and most of all to be able to differentiate between the colors", says i-mag photography magazine about their Color in Black-and-White photo challenge.

I took up the challenge and was elated to see two of my photos included in their current issue (vol 2 number 12 issue 25).

Some photos are great for black and white conversion but they tend to show only, uhm, black and white. So I picked photos that showed the colors in different shades/tones of gray when converted to monochrome, and at the same time should also show rich blacks and striking whites.

My monochrome converted photo of lanterns inside a temple in Yeongjong Island (Incheon) in Korea made it to the top spot. Another image that got printed is a photo of a vinta (taken in Samal island, Davao) with its colorful flag against a backdrop of mid-morning summer sky.
