WOW Vik!!! PERFECT B&W TONES!
Thanks Nic! After going through your B&Ws – I realised I liked high-contrast B&Ws and so gave this a shot after reading up.The black sky is as I applied an action that imitates a red filter (from film days).
I LOVE this in b&w Vikram! Very, very dramatic. Perfect tones and composition….love how you work that 10-20! Awesome image :)
Thanks Shelly – for the behind the scenes input!! :-)I’ve suddenly realised that when outdoors, I tend to keep the 10-20 on the camera all the time!!
gotta love the sky. great work Vikram.
:-) – yeah amazing isn’t it!! When the clouds build like this and the weather is scorching hot – you know that the fury of the monsoon is being built up thousands of miles offshore and will hit in a few weeks (which it did – and how!!)
This is fabulous Vikram!!! Sweet B&W, the sky so ominous, so many tones for your eyes to dance over…excellent:)
Cheers Robert!! I used to love the red filter in film – Digital just makes it easier to use as an afterthought!
Fantastic WOW image!
Thank you Miron! Always good to get a “Wow” from you!!
My Favorite, this is awesome Vikram. How far away from your place is this?
Thanks Nat!!Not close – about 5.5 hour drive each way, so you won’t see me there very often. Though I’d love to be there for a dawn shoot. This was at mid-day.
AWESOME!!! I LOVE this Vikram, it is just so expansive and seems to go on forever! The tones are just perfect and those vanishing lines are just incredible, sensational work my friend!! :))
Wow – a fav from you!! Thank you Simone!!These salt pans are huge – extend for miles and miles as that link will show.
What a fascinating place. I would love to visit there. I love the B&W treatment. Really draws you into the detail.
Thank you my friend. Perhaps if you visit – would be glad to take a trip down there!
This view is stunning Vikram, by favourite, I prefer the dramatic tones in this to the colour version, even though the colour is still amazing…. FAVE! Black and white really sets off salt pans here…..
Thank you so much for your comments Vicki and the fav!When there’s a great sky, I too prefer B&W to colour for landscapes – it changes the scene from beautiful to dramatic!
