The Emptiness Of It All


Somewhere in New Jersey :-)

The Story

I thought that this would be a rather cool capture. But in post it simply turned out to be rather ordinary.

So I decided to try some selective B&W. And I think it works. At first I was leaving the green in for the leaves and grass. It was only a hint of green. But it was too much.

At least I think it was too much. So I opted to remove the green. And only allow the red to stay in the photo.
