Leanne Cole always has a specific theme for the first Monochrome Madness Challenge in any month and the theme this week is Circles. I guess I cheated a tad this week because my picture has only one circle. It’s anther photo of one or both of my granddaughters paddle boarding near our Guam beach house one evening just before sunset.

The circle, of course, is the tropical sun a few minutes before it set below the horizon. Perhaps the sun’s reflection on the water may also be considered a circle — maybe, kinda, sort of? Sunset was around 7 pm and the sky was really much lighter than this. I chose a preset in the Nik Silver Efex Pro plug-in to Lightroom that turned the sky to almost black.
Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Wednesday (Tuesday in North America and Europe) to see what Leanne and other photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days.
Didn’t think of that . . . I have a number of sunset shots through smokey haze from when I was in Colorado (because of the fires) and also here because of the Vog.
Great transformation into monochrome! Best wishes! Peter
Awesome! M 🙂
