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.
