I took this shot of offshore windmills but when I processed it, I couldn’t decide if it looked better darker or lighter.I think the issue is that it was a bit of a grey picture in the first place, which meant it didn’t have a lot of contrast to start off with.
I’ve darkened this one quite a lot to bring out the shiny patches of water.
It’s been a bit nautical on this blog the last few days, so back to the landscapes.
I sort of like this image, despite being able to see a lot of faults in it. It’s too dark and grey, as is often the case with my stuff. It is unfiltered but the house look like toys. The trees make the town look a lot greener than it really is at street level.
The tower blocks break the image in the middle and the pylons are like a ring of steel and electric around the town – at this distance they almost form an impenetrable fence. The sky is overcast and, in monochrome, that means grey.
All of these images play with the layering of the landscape when viewed from a height. Housing, industrial, natural. More below:
