Nick Darin ARCH 5710 Photography and Digital Methods Local Color: Changing Perception
I selected some a range of grays in this image and tried to provide a higher rate of contrast. I also removed many of the yellow tones from the image so that the grays really come through stronger. In my opinion the idea of consonance comes through much stronger when the colors are dialed in like this.
I used the exageration of color in these images to create a more dramatic and scarier effect. I reduced some of the yellows and reds to leae the subject in a more stark contrast between dark and light, resulting in even more tension between the viewer and the photo.
In this image, I took and redistributed some of the color values to pull out a little more contrast and texture in the concrete and too provide a righer palette of color to the otherwise somewhat simple gray palette that existed before.
