Monochrome malevolence

A slightly spooky looking Turning Torso is my photo for today’s task in photography 101. The tips for today were to:

Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.

I just couldn’t go past this picture of the Turning Torso in Malmö Sweden. I took it just a while ago (on my phone) and again I like the fact that it reminds me of my wonderful travels. I really like the building’s architecture, its stand out height and the sweeping curves climbing towards the sky.

In colour it looked like a perfectly ordinary snap of a landmark building but when I changed it to monochrome it took on a whole new persona. It now has a malevolent look and the sky behind it is much more striking than it was in colour.

I like the new look much better. I wouldn’t  have thought that it could make such a difference to a photo just by changing to monochrome. Another great prompt and tip for the day. I’m enjoying the daily posts and hope my readers are too. It is giving me a good mental workout trying to find something suitable each day and on top of that, it’s fun!

Looking a bit spooky!

    1. I know, it looks amazing doesn’t it? In colour it was just a blue sky with a few wispy clouds so I’m amazed at how it turned out in black and white. It took me ages to get the spelling of malevolent, I knew what word I wanted to use but couldn’t spell it :/ thanks for commenting, it’s much appreciated 😊
