So, a friend of mine commented to me in person that they felt that the B&W photo I posted yesterday didn’t have enough contrast to hold itself up as a good B&W photo. I respect his opinion on things of art, so I came home to attempt to try it with some more contrast. I may be aiming in the wrong direction, and to be blunt, I’ve gotten very happy with my smaller crop, so it won’t be the same overall view of the photo, but here is the old photo
And here is a newer, more contrasting photo.
And maybe that’s too dark, so here’s one that is lightened up a bit that gives more details on the sides.
Which do you all like better? Any suggestions?
