SNAPPING TURTLE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Snapping Turtle

The snapping turtle is prehistoric looking with its long spiked tail and makes for a great subject as it can stay put for long periods of time sunning itself. This is the first time I have tried doing a photograph in black and white. I used Tonality Pro for Mac to affect the changes. While the colour version gives a sense of what I saw, I think the black and white is a better representation of this impressive creature.

  1. What an amazing creature! I love all the green (moss/algae?) all over his face. Its looks like it would be incredibly heavy!!!

  2. I’ve never seen one of these in person. While I like the black and white, to me the color has more depth.

  3. Right out the dinosaur era! The B&W is definitely more impressive in terms of focusing on the creature itself.

  4. Hi Belinda. Although black and white is not my usual choice when processing a picture, I think I agree with you on this one. It brings out the details and adds to the prehistoric look.

  5. Love this shot (the colour one’s my fave, though)…it does look like something out of a good fantasy novel 🙂

  6. This reminds me that I once watched a snapping turtle slowly cross the road. It does look prehistoric.
