Half Dome and Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, California 

(A leftover from my recent 5-day B&W challenge)

I wonder how old the oldest shot in the National Park Service archives is that dates back from this exact location, namely the summit of Clouds Rest?

Thanks for looking,
- Gary.

Yet another  experiment in   photography. 
The focus here was to do a high contrast  image and I chose to go with a fresh  with some water sprayed on it like . As usual the image is  and all editing has been done on the phone only, including the uploading. 
Do let me know what you think and critiques are most welcome.

This for my friend +Jerry Johnson, who asked me to tag him if I posted a mirrored version of the pumpkin.

I bought some new toys a few weeks back including a 16 x 20" mirror and some studio lights. I also bought a light tent but the pumpkin was a bit too big to shoot in the tent. Because of the size of the pumpkin (large) this shot posed more of a problem than I had anticipated.  I shoot most of my macros with a 100mm lens.  To get far enough back and to get all of the reflection in the mirror had me on a ladder, against the wall of my little "studio". 

The pump[kin is sitting on a mirror. The mirror is sitting on a piece of black velvet cloth; which is under the mirror and directly behind it.  The are two 250w studio lamps; one positioned to left and slightly above the pumpkin and the other to the right and table height. The image was processed in Photoshop, Nik Color Effects Pro 4 and Nik Silver Effects Pro 2.  In CEP4 I added a Tonal Contrast filter. In SEP2 I converted to B&W using the "Fine Art" effect. In Photoshop I added a mask with a gradient so that the mirrored image would fade out.  To the final image a added a High Pass filter layer set to soft light overlay.

Story
Tagline
A photography theme for sharing your Monochrome images.
Introduction
For the time being (18 November 2014) Monochrome Monday will be uncurated but we encourage you to continue to share images with the theme.

Here's a slick piece of text that you can copy and paste into your posts:  It will magically transform in to the proper text to tag #MonochromeMonday.

<START selecting after this>

#MonochromeMonday +100721197069868019681 

<END selecting before this>


Our philosophy:
MonochromeMonday is all about sharing your black and white vision with other community members here on G+. The idea is to share your work and to interact with others.  G+ is a social media network so we naturally believe that the goal is to interact.  To us, the interaction is more important than the image and so we invite photographers and artists of all levels to share their vision with us. 

We invite you to post anything monochromatic.  Does it use "selective color"...no problem.  Is it a long exposure...wonderful.   Is it Fine Art...excellent. Is it Sepia toned ... well, yes, any monochrome treatment works for us.  Are there other themes where these images can be shared? Yes, of course, but we hope that you'll share with us and help us build an active community.

There are no rules except to have fun. If the curators aren't mentioned, we assume that you don't want to draw our attention to your contribution; so, if we're not mentioned, please don't feel left-out if we fail to interact with you, or comment on, your contribution.  

The McM team
Currently, Monochrome Monday is uncurated. 

How to participate:
Post your monochrome work to the theme using the hashtag, #MonochromeMonday 

Hashtags are formed by typing a hashmark, "#", and the word.  There can be no spaces in a "properly formed" hashtag.  

To search for contributions:
To search for and view work contributed to a theme, you can search on the #hashtag, for example  #MonochromeMonday,  then you can click on the "save this search" button to be able to find the theme in the future.

----------------

History:
The Monochrome Monday theme was one of the original themes created while G+ was still  in Beta.  The original idea for a moderated theme list was suggested to Melanie Kuntz and Eric Leslie who mostly transformed the use of hashtags into photography themes when they created their first moderated list of photography hash tags. 

The theme was originally added to the list of themes by the request of Siddharth Prandt. For a long time he passively moderated the theme. Then in February, Charles Lupica, Hans Berendsen, and Bill Wood became the new curators of the theme.  This page was created to support the theme and is still "owned" by Charles Lupica.  Charles is currently taking a break from the theme but may return at a future time. 

When Bill Wood left the team Jerry Johnson graciously accept an offer to join the team.  Not long after that Manuel Votta came on board as well.  The popularity of the theme continued to grow, hopefully due to the efforts of dedicated curators like Hans, Jerry, and Manuel.  The theme began to top 500 submissions a week and more than 1000 participants so the very active Steve Barge and the lovely Nurcan Azaz were asked to join the team.

The McM theme continues to grow and change and we thank you for your ongoing interest and support. 


Thank you

Charles Lupica
