Black & White Photography – 4

This is the fourth time I’ve joined Susan’s black/white photo challenge and to me it’s really a challenge, but a fun one. In last week’s b/w post I showed old vehicles but it feels more challenging to edit images of people.

Choosing between these two types of editing felt a bit difficult, they are so different. Which one do you prefer?These people dressed in traditional costumes are from the Iban tribe in Sarawak, Borneo. The Ibans are famous for their head-hunting past, their massive ironwood longhouses, their ornate body tattooing, their wonderful weaving skills, and of course their potent rice wine, tuak.Next Monday I will be traveling to Sarawak again, probably for the last time…

As before, I also show my pictures in color, for those who want to compare.
The one I am least satisfied with is the warrior, he is doing much better in black / white.

  1. Beautiful. The warrior does look good in B&W. Anita, instead of converting to B&W post production, why don’t you click the originals in B&W straight away? You might see the difference. Yes, you will miss on the color but if you feel you need one, change back the function to color and get the same picture in color. What say?

  2. Håller med alla andra här, de här bilderna gör sig verkligen i svartvitt, proffsigt snyggt fotograferade! Av bilderna på de två kvinnorna föredrar jag nog den vänstra, men valet är svårt. Fantastiska bilder!!

  3. Fina bilder i svartvitt. Beträffande din fråga om bilderna på de två kvinnorna, så föredrar jag nog den högra. Inte lätt att välja, men stannar för den högra eftersom jag upplever den mera kontrastrik.
