Phoneography Challenge: Black and White Monday

It’s black and white Monday at Lens and Pens by Sally.  I selected a photo that I took with my iPhone5 on a very overcast day from my front yard.  The original was not shot in black and white but it was certainly a black and white day!  So editing to black and white in the different apps just made subtle changes.

I pulled the following from Sally’s post (I hope she doesn’t mind). I found the explanation for how we perceive black and white very interesting:

“Science explains it this way: A surface which contains all colors will be seen as black, because the viewer perceives that no colors are being reflected. Whereas to realize white, the observer sees all colors reflected. This explanation is the path to: black is color and white is not.”
