Contrasty Take on the Buachaille

Recommended Posts

Generally, people go for contrasty photos. They're easy to read in thumbnail format on smartphones.

 

My reaction is that it's a daytime photo that looks like it was taken in moonlight due to the processing. That goes against the grain of my documentary training whereby you always respect reality.

Well there is reality and there is verisimilitude - a version of truth.  All photography is verisimilitude...  If this was taken at night under a full moon, I would ave left it in colour...a friend of mine who won  the Take a View Landscape photographer of the year took a shot further back with his Nikon DF lit from moonlight...
