Monochrome Weekly: Wraith

Wraith

Maybe I should have saved this one for Halloween. The "wraith" is a moth on my patio door at night, but I don't know what the white orb is. The flash did not fire.

It actually photographed more as a golden sepia, but I like this spooky grey, grainy effect that happened when I completely desaturated the shot and boosted the contrast. ( I hope that's not cheating. I'm new here.)

For more photos in black and white, check out the meme at The Monochrome Weekly.

My brother in law used to say "If you're not cheating, you're not trying" :)

A special effect indeed, the grain fits well.

Very cool shot. Maybe the white spot is a reflection of a light inside the house. Doesn't matter--pretend it's a comet.
