    Care to discuss these photos?

    Have a look at these, please:

    I find the way he chose to print them interesting. Seems they're printed so contrasty that it eliminates what may otherwise clutter the image - do you think?

    When you see an image someone else has printed, do you wonder about the various possibilities and why they've chosen to print the way they have? Sometimes I would love to be able to see into the processes, choices and thoughts of other photographers.

    Just browsing images this morning, and musing.

    I think he didn't have a light meter, took a guess, overexposed, saw a good composition after processing, and printed it. Nothing wrong with that.
