Good luck with high contrast color... it ain't easy to pull off in a pleasing way.

I'd call this high contrast in color. Voters might not agree:

No, shouldn't be just b/w, although mines a bit hypocrytical in that sense.

One of mine - happens to be b/w but I do a lot of color high contrast wedding stuff too.

I would have to agree with you. To me, the contrast is created mainly by the extreme difference in color (or complementary colors for that matter, yellow and blue).

This one is probably borderline, what do you think? Personally, I think the sky contrasts pretty well with the land.

Here's a shot that screams "contrast" to me:

DEFINITELY not high-contrast; the sky just happens to be starlingly blue but everything else is flat flat flat.

I like it, great example. What's it of?

seems more high key than high contrast to me

I think that may be a little TOO contrasty for voters. In some of those shots, all I could see was black, white, and absolutely no grays in between.

I almost forgot about this image because I never really liked how it came out. This was in November last year when I went to Vancouver BC and saw this place. I think it's like a maritime museum or convention hall or something along those lines. Any Canadian neighbors out there?

I agree. I edited my post to say it looked more high key.
