Shedding a New Light on a “Bad” Shot

As a (very) amateur photographer “Bad” images are bound to happen, the past few rolls have had some bad images, here are two that really bummed me out at first but then I decided to turn them black and white, and now they look quite amazing (to me anyways.) The first was taken with my Spotmatic, the second with my old Canon 650 (The founding father of the EOS focusing system.)

shot was under exposed came out grainy and dark, turned it black and white changed the highlight and shadow settings, note the individual bricks on the bridge.

This shot the shutter was too slow and suffered a lot of image blur in color. Change it into black and white and what really becomes noticeable is the light coming from the house and illuminating the tree.
