Reminiscent of a Chinese ink painting. The tone for its various layers of darkness is excellent.Congratulations Teruo Araya
It's like several islands or collages of "land". And speaking of island there must be a details within them.
This is not a photo ! This is a painting ! A work of art ! How can zoo compete with this?!
Congrats Teruo !
I would like to thank the editor chosen this photo.
And I want to say to my friends who posted a nice comments."Thank you very much!"
How I wish to have such landscape in my country. it would have become a shrine and a money spinning business for others.
I seem to remember being able to download these "photos of the day" at a higher resolution. Is that no longer possible? This would make a perfect desktop wallpaper!
The contrast of black and white is intense. A very powerful medium. Two colors without distractions.
I wonder if this is done in the darkroom. Exposed the paper, and then paint developer onto the paper to create this image. It is wildly over-exposed also, which is what gives it that stark dark, and blown out white effect.
That's probably the way YOU would do it as you know so much about it. "Widely Over-Exposed"?? Not Really. It's a Beautiful Picture! PERIOD!
