Take an image that I I have previously used and selectively process twice. Once so the figure recedes into the setting and then the opposite so the figure stands out more.
I chose an image I had used in an earlier exercise. I had converted it to black and white to try and give it some depth. It had been a difficult image to process as it was nearly all the same tone. This was how I presented it back then:
Looking at the image and reprocessing it thinking about making the image blend in or stand out. Thinking of the various parts of the image. The first process I made global adjustments, making the figure blend into the setting.
Even this is better than my earlier processing.
