We all know the rule of thumb of presenting the best image and not the bloopers or the second runs or the alternatives, but here is a companion shot that follows the same theme as yesterday.  I think the previous shot is far better however my thoughts for the past week or two has been on how we can use higher contrast shots to give visual emphasis and increase the obvious form and design of the products or scenes that we encounter.  A friend introduced me to the wonderful world of Ray Metzker photographs and he is the master of high contrast.  We will talk more later about Metzker but you can view more of his images right here.

ride you ever experienced.  Life is too short to endure such a thing"
