One of the pro photographers I follow is Scott Bourne. The title is a phrase he uses.
Black and white photographs, especially analog made, can express a degree of perfection that will take one’s breath away. At the same time, some of the most compelling images break all the rules.
My test for my own images is a kind of serenity I feel when viewing the result. I seem to be fond of high contrast and deep shadows.
Go see some of my favorites for an idea of what impresses me.
