Kelsey of A Ray of Sunshine announced a photo challenge earlier this week. The theme is Black and White. Oh yeah, I love black and white photos, so I jumped into the fray!
This is an overall view of the Quarai ruins, an ancient Pueblo mission that dates back to 1630. It is located in the Salinas Valley, southeast of Albuquerque, New Mexico. My camera settings were f/8.0, 1/125 second, and ISO 200. I used Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 software to give the digital image a dramatic emphasis.
