Day 32: Contrast

Today's photo represents contrast. There is the contrast I created by desaturating the background to make the foreground stand out. But there is also the contrast of the subject matter...the proud warrior against the seedy storefront. Contrast guides the eye.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE contrast. It is what I look most for in my photography. It makes up for what I lack in skills and talent! Which, you are NOT lacking in! You really are very good, Jim. Are you tired of hearing it yet? hahaha!
