Oh wow. I would never assume someone was sad or depressed b/c they use black and white. Black and white creates a whole different mood and evokes a completely different emotion than in a color photo. I think your work is awesome!
Thanks so much! And even in the color version there isn't much color in the sky. I tried to adjust the levels and add a little bit of gray and I don't know, it just didn't really "wow" me as much as this picture. But I would love your opinion, if you don't mind... This is the version with a bit more gray.
Of course I don't mind Rachel, I always like viewing your work to be honest, I prefer the grayer version, it maintains the high level of contrast while looking more natural than this one. Then again, it's just my opinion
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your opinion. I think I will update it with the grayer version. That was the only thing I was worried about was losing some of the contrast, but you're absolutely right, there is still a very good amount of contrast in the picture. Thank you again!
