This is a cropped and converted version of "underexpose" and is somewhere along the lines of where I would eventually like to be going with some of my images. I know that the extremes are never going to be to everyones taste, but I hope they will appeal to at least a few of you.

Im not sure what uploading to epz does to an image but this image is far better on my laptop and I'm looking at it on 24 inch monitor.... Sad

It's a brave posting, and I feel it's very much a marmite shot , love it or hate it.
Dark and full of atmosphere, could see this printed extremely large and hanging in spacious surroundings.

I won't say it isn't a striking image simply because this is the proof a black dominant can indeed reveal itself as full of intensity. Painting has taken the lead with, for instance, the paintings of Pierre Soulages. But painting deals with abstract form to bring out the light inherent in dark pigments. I am not certain this should apply totally to photography. A hint of reality in this case would make the confrontation much more palpable, acting perhaps as Soulage's white pigment to tease out brightness. This I see in your case with the vertical poles (intrinsically they mean nothing, yet enough to direct the eye to weigh the interplay between highlights and shadows. So, this said, I can only encourage your to experiment. Regards, Paul

I like it. Moody for sure, uncertain, bleak, minimalist, all come to mind. It has the ability to draw one in, just to see. Like a dream not fully revealed.

Is this the darker side of Mark, it is dark and moody, I like what Willie says 'a dream not fully revealed' what a great description, as soon as I read it I thought, absolutely. It is one of those images that provokes, thoughts, emotions, imagination and then makes you re-think everything.

Another great piece of work.
