Default Contrasts - Dead or Alive

Hope this isnīt sick? Taken and adjusted about 3 weeks ago. Spain has the most amazing, colourful graveyards. It may have to do with the poverty of some areas, but they are incredible...rows and rows of these "Graves". I lost the colour except for flowers in photoshop to show the "contrast" funnily enough.

This is fantastic! This reminds me of the printers' trays/drawers from the "old" Guttenburg presses. I love it.

Pretty neat and great contrast. I like you left, right and bottom edge but IMHO the top is distracting with the partial view of that row. Have you tried to cropping to achieve a clean line on top?

Do you know what? After I posted it I thought the EXACT same thing... . But I am going to use the following excuse as I am to lazy to crop and repost....

"I feel it shows the viewer that the graves go on past these boundaries"

If anyone fancies doing it for me, be my guest, I would like to see it myself

Default Life & Death

Yes, the image is a good representation of the constrast between life and death. The follower are full of life's colors and the markers are empty of color and life.

Well done,

Rod

P.S My heart goes out to Spain.

Well, shoot. I was thinking of what I wanted to say while scrolling down through the comments, but then I read Rod's. Just re-read what he said and pretend I'm saying it.
