A few photographs, an old Main Street, but with an unusually wide street. The automobile made, and broke, small towns.
This being wide helps cars pass through, and not stop, in a town.
People went right by on their way to the mall. Main Street dried up. However, there is some revenge. Now it’s the Mall that’s dry. On-line orders come right to your door.
Anyway, I break one of the basic, and most important rules, when I create photographs for a B&W / Monochrome article. I look at each image as an individual and finish it with what I think is the best for the photo.
I’m not technically correct, images should be consistent.
B&W is all about shadows and contrast, and some just look better than others in a particular type of photograph. I do follow composition guide lines and try to finish each as close to a film version as possible.
Each image here was finished in a different style. I even cheated on the last and it has an underlying red filter to accent contrasts.
I probably still do B&W / Monochrome because I get to play more.
