When it comes to black & white [In reply to] Can't Post

I think most people respond well, naturally, if an image has strong contrast, though most don't recognise that that is what they are responding to. Few have the words or the eye training to know that.

The Cove has very strong contrast. It was my favorite from chapter one as well. I love black & white images with strong contrast. In this image, it the contrast and the texture that appeal to me most.

Contrast is equally important in color images. Color has thre properies: Hue, Value, Intensity.

Hue - What color it is (where it sits on the color wheel)

Value - how light or dark it is. (how much black or white is added, some colors are light or dak naturally)

Intensity - how pure a color is (how much gray or a color from the other side of the Wheel is mixed in it) which caused a color to gray out)

Of the three, Value (not Hue) is the dominant properiy.

Nienna: “those who hearken to her learn pity, and endurance in hope . . . All those who wait in Mandos cry to her, for she brings strength to the spirit and turns sorrow to wisdom." — Valaquenta
