Another Redhead: Cee’s Black & White Challenge

Black and white image of woodpecker with red head

I have been busy on the blog this week, so this post is short and sweet as I share my black and white version of this woodpecker.

Back in early 2017, with my new Lumix camera in tow, I strode along the American River Bike Trail hoping for some good photo ops! Although it was late January, it was a sunny day and birds were out. I was so excited to see Mr. Woodpecker here.

Cee’s challenge accepts black and white photos with these elements: I chose the third one to highlight the pop of red on his little birdy head.

  • Black and white photography
  • Sepia tones (browns)
  • Selective color with the majority of the photo being in black and white
  • Desaturated – very little color tone left in your photo

Here he is in full color with minimal post-editing. I zoomed in on him quite a bit, and was pleased with the clarity.

  1. Amazing shot of the woodpecker, Terri. Love the BW version too – it accentuates the woodpecker so much more, making it the star of the photo 🙂 He looked like he was enjoying the sunshine and warmth, and hope you are too 🙂
