We know that the way surfaces absorb, reflect and transmit ambient light, gives us their colour, as they soak up some of the spectrum and project the rest. I am fascinated by the subtleties of colour, as generated by the innate properties of any subject I am trying to capture and as affected by the techniques I am applying to image it. That said, although such underlying colour generates the contrasts and tones in black and white imaging, subtracting it leaves space for a wonderful, alternative focus on texture and composition.

 

I was attracted by the textures of wood and rope within a strong compositional contrast formed by straight planks and snakelike curves. Summer sun in Greece is an endless gift to photography and allowed me to use ideal settings on otherwise rather basic digital equipment. The result maximised the grainy impact of the wood and overall sharpness of the shadows. I hope you like it too.

Bravo ! Composition, texture et graphisme superbes. J'aime également beaucoup l'opposition entre les courbes de la corde et les lignes droites des planches. En fait, je n'ai rien à ajouter à ton texte. Combien de pépites as-tu encore à nous faire découvrir ?
