I'm torn between two entries:

794527.jpg and 794528.jpg

At first, it seemed like a real black-and-white decision, but the more I think about it, the more I'm caught somewhere in the middle.

Thoughts?

The choice seems intuitive to me.

They all look the same to me on my non-calibrated monitor. :P

I pick the amber one.

Not if we all chip in to save nobody's arse by submitting one of the options ourselves. Think of it! An entire Free Study in pure black or pure white :-) Charliebaker would swoon!

I'd go with this one. If you stare at it for more than 5 seconds, you really get a sense of the utter darkness. (click on the thumbnail and see what I mean)

Art - I think your edit is superior to 21.gif nobody's - the utter blackness is so rich and dark - but I think it is against the rules to have someone use another person's edit. You may want to send him a PM with the workflow you used so he can do the work himself. I realize it is would be difficult with the significant post processing you did, but he might be able to get close to the master work you have done with his original.

Please, Nobody can edit better than Art.

What post-processing? It was all done in PRE-shooting. A little hydrochloric acid here, a little there... Go ahead, folks you can all try it yourself - I have no secrets. :D

But wasn't this already entered in the Fade To Black side challenge? No double dipping.

I prefer this one. It takes true genius to embody all existance in one pure moment of clarity and light.

Too many blown highlights in the second one... Go with your first choice.

Way over sharpened. Heck of a halo. As for the other one, it has enough artifacts to satisfy any archaeologist!

Thanks for the tip Art. Do you apply the HCl directly to the sensor or to the shutter or both?

I think I've finally seen the light. Thanks everyone.

Neither. You apply it to the subject.

It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black.
05/29/2009 09:06:28 PM · #19
There is no black or white - only shades of gray. The darkest example could not be more gray. The lightest example could not be less gray. The gray example could be more or less gray depending on your monitor calibration.

That thing on the right in the first one is very DISTRACTING!

Removes the colours from our sight.

I like this one the best--but I can't tell if it's a polar bear in a snowstorm, or is it a marshmallow in a snowstorm? (sorry, you only saved it as a 640 x 640. Since it's a free study, you can save it as 720 x 720, and I'd be able to see it a little better... the eyes are the first thing to go...)

Black or White?
