THERE ARE ONLY A HANDFUL OF PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT CAN DO BLACK AND WHITE LANDSCAPES!!!!! Ansel Adams and You are top mind...this is simply because the Artist reads the subject first understands the tonal values/light and contrast and then gently squeezes the trigger..many have tried and failed, its too easy to see and think colour, the real trick as i suspect in your case is to see monotone..but it is much more than that it is see the entire picture completed in your mind that separates Brilliance from the dull ordinary.The Image itself, well i struggle to find adjectives to do it justice, for me this is the overture to Mozarts Magic Flute, it sends shivers down the spine makes the hairs stand up on my arms in anticipation..it simply leaves me breathless asking for more...There are not sufficient Star Ratings for this, there is nothing but the sheer pleasure and delight..
So where to from here well 20 or so images in this style a exhibition anywhere in the world.. and as a large print well the envy of any boardroom..
I'm actually humbled at writing a critique, who am i to actually comment on a Masterpiece.
100% TOP IMAGE THIS YEAR and a minimum 7 star Rating..
and as with all good things More please!
thank you for your comment and thank you for taking the time
