I saw the trellised shadows from the kitchen window so dashed out with camera to photograph them before the sun disappeared and the snow melted. Moog, usually a reluctant venturer to the great outdoors, followed me and hence these monochromes.
When the contrasts between dark and light are extreme it’s difficult not to blow the highlights or lose detail in shadow. There are several ways to help counter this (*see link below) -the easiest would have been RAW file capture (which I had switched off when on holiday to save space!). Other than that I had very little time with the moving subject to think about much more than framing.
One for Monochrome Monday and Introspectives with an aim to improve and learn more about photography. Hence the images are not always for show

Thank you for including the educational link.
I need that Brenda!!
The …moving subject is a great model and in the first shot especially worked wonders [paw prints and shadows included!]
bit of an action shot too for one who walks gingerly with snow paws!
A ha ha… yes!
Stepping delicately. (K)
on fur frosted paws 🙂
As they say, you had me at “cat”. Seems you did very well re tonal range. Not that I’m qualified to say. But yes, black and white well included does much to engage the eye. Makes me remember Ansel Adams. First image of course has so much interest – not just tonal range, but range of elements – cat, snow, lattice shadows. Of plebeian voice – yum.
thanks Neil -was able to make some tonal adjustments post camera but can never put right blown highlights hence must pay more attention to these especially give that the first shot had so much potential
