When editing, I always take a look at the photo in greyscale to see where the light and shadows belong. When I pealed away the colours on this one, something strange developed that I just can’t put my finger on. The whole perspective shifter from one where I felt to be looking down into the field to one where I’m flying through it and my eyes are level with the tops of the plants.
For me, monochrome often adds a mysterious tension to the images, but this one is downright ominous! The sunlight devoid of its colour makes the landscape look like it was taken with a night vision lens, where every shadow becomes a potential monster we can never quite see until it is about to leap on us!
I hear the dialogue as follows: “What are we looking at here?” “Shhh! We’re being hunted and it’s near.”
