How can you tell by looking at an image how big the original scene was?
It is bad enough that Photoshop has become a verb, it is now also a term of derision.
While I love black & white, sometimes it is fun to bring just a little color.
I never quite got abstract art. I would spend so much time trying to get reality right, that abstract seemed like a cheat.
An old friend asked me, “Why do you suppose b/w photography appeals to so many?”
