145 – High Contrast Shot


This was not a high contrast shot in the least.  It was totally blasted out from the afternoon sun and the fact that these agaves (or yuccas, whatever they are) were dying and faded.  I was going to try to punch it up for the repeating patterns theme…I was playing around with it and got this version with the sketch presets, which I’d previously decided were worthless.  Now I’m loving it.

    The black and white high contrast works well with this image.
