When the wells run dry
Recent talk on radio and TV news programs regarding the economic woes of various countries in Europe and of course the USA suddenly made this image I took on Saturday all the more relevant. The dilapidated forecourt and pumps expressed how the US economy must feel at present. Enough of the politics, I have recently been reading Michael Freeman’s book on Black & White Digital Photography and found it by and large informative and I learned some new things. when I processed this image I tried to get good peak white a nice dense black and retain some shadow detail. I largely think I’ve achieved this and am pretty pleased with the image. Comments welcome as always.
