Graveyard Gate - Galisteo, NM
I felt someting like a "formal portrait" in much of what I shot in New Mexico; letting things stand proud and tall in the light - to tell their own story. My job was to get out of the way and let the places and things speak.
Most of the shots in the New Mexico group received very minimal processing: default settings in Adobe RAW, B&W filter applied to the image, then burn and dodge. Why? Because it just felt right.
i've thouight about putting some of these up in color too - no question color draws more attention than B&W. But not this one. Not now.
