#SplitToneFiveDayChallenge  
Day 5 of 5

It's November and in my neck of the woods that means winter is just around the corner and we might start seeing some frosty mornings.   This felt like a perfect image to use a green-yellow split tone with.

Green highlights at 20, yellow shadows at 50, and balance at 50. 

If you want to participate in this challenge, then go for it!  I know the rules are supposed to be "tag, you're it" but I know I had fun playing with my photos in a new way, and if you're interested I hope you'll play too - 5 days, 5 images and have fun!

#SplitToneFiveDayChallenge  
Day 2 of 5


I don't think you're ready for this jelly...

Converting this to black and white made it look so murky and inky, more like a creature of the depths rather than a just-below-the surface jellyfish.  And adding the split tones of blue and orange injected a little more life - I'm liking this challenge! 

Orange highlights at 44, Blue shadows at 60.
+Lauri Novak  tagged me, and in turn I tag the power couple of +Angie Smith and +Wesly Smith; since they just wrapped up the black and white challenge I'm hoping they might like to continue with this one!

#SplitToneFiveDayChallenge  Day 1 of 5

I was tagged by the lovely and talented (and super fun and nice) +Lauri Novak to participate in the Split Tone challenge, started by +Alan Shapiro.

I love playing around with images after shooting, probably because I'm not a very technically talented photographer so I'm happier with my work after adding some extra oomph in post-processing.  I've never done much with split toning before, and never thought to use split toning with monochromatic images, so this has been a fun experiment. 

For this first image, I took a basic black and white flower and then used a blue-orange split tone.

Blue highlights at 41, Orange shadows at 54. 

Now to play tag, you're it - I'll go family first and choose +Graham Knights to give it a whirl.

Day 4
#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  

Peace out y'all.  This was a recent entry I did for the word "peace" in the #chrystaraephotographyscavengerhunt  and I was beyond thrilled to win a first place vote from the esteemed +Mark Rodriguez.

I wish you all a sense of peace and calm, and beyond that the hope and dream of a world at peace with one another.

Day 2
For my second day of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  I took this photo from a "red" themed Drink and Click event last year and it turns out  +Kate Siobhan Mulligan and +Maryanne Wirkkanen look just as gorgeous without any colour!

These bleachers need a good bleaching before I'd wanna take a seat.

Blue-orange split tone, blue highlights at 35, orange shadows at 72, balance at 33.

Not your standard witch
While it would appear that +Maryanne Wirkkanen can drive a stick, she stalled right after this shot was taken. 

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Day 3
#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  

I took another very colourful photo (a red Chinese umbrella) and did some high-key post processing to give it a more graphic look.

Day 1
#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  

I've been nominated by my hubby +Graham Knights to participate in this challenge.  I think it's his way of reminding me that G+ is here (because I haven't been!)  We have a newborn so finding time to take new photos (other than baby photos) is rare these days, so this is a great chance to go through my archives and do a little creative work during naptime!

I thought it would be fun to process this vibrant, colourful photo into black and white and see how it translated.  I quite like it!
