Default Contrast- Light and Dark

This is one of two ideas I came up with suddenly tonight. This picture has not been edited aside from desaturate and sharpening.

Gandalf, I like the image alot, but I'm wondering if it's more fitting for the black & white challenge. Then again, what do I know? :lol:

Jack,
Actually the picture was so monochromatic from the way I metered it I figured why not just go B&W?
Add a little artistic style and whatnot....

Excellent image. I really love stark photos. I must be having a stupid morning because it actually took a minute of staring at the picture to realize this is both literally and figuratively illustrating the idea of light versus dark. I mean, it's pretty darned obvious, isn't it? ops:

Thanks guys. If anyone has looked at my white duck picture, I took both with the same intent and methods. I used center weighted metering to get a proper exposure off the light ( and duck) and it blacked out the surrounding! Glad you guys like it.

Well done Gandalf065.

Good hint the center weighted metering.
