Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Contrast…probably my favorite topic so far…Of course one can interpret it in a number of ways;  it’s a difference between two poles, two opposites. Rich and poor, happy and sad, day and night… At least this is the way I use this word. However, this time I decided to go for the straightforward interpretation, the one that Wikipedia provides:

Contrast is the difference in luminance and/or colour that makes an object distinguishable.

So in a picture with few contrasts, colours flow into each other, objects are not clearly defined. The picture I chose for this week is the opposite. Note, how the building forms a sharp contrast with the sky and the sun is very clearly distinguishable from the rest. Here in Amsterdam, we can rarely see the sun this way. That day I was very happy to have my camera ready.

But without further ado, here my contribution to this weeks photo challenge. Enjoy.

  1. Great entry for this week’s challenge. Somehow the clouds look like a semi-vanished dragon to me. I like it!

  2. I think that I agree with your definition of “contrast”. I love the straight edged silhouette of the building against the flowing, curved free flowing clouds. The sun draws the eyes. I love everything about this photo.
    I’m thinking that I need to do a bit more “cloud” photography. No photo will be the same. Thanks for the inspiration.
