Sedimentary Deposits

Sedimentary Deposits - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 150mm, f/12, 3s, ISO 100.

I love contrast in my images and for most of my images I try to find  a black point that is deep in the blacks to give the photo an anchor; also not a fan of the washed out blacks look.  However, for this image, I needed to avoid the temptation to crush the shadows and instead keep the contrast low which was original to the conditions but for me also more visually pleasing.  I was also tempted to convert to black & white but I really like the very subtle reds and yellows in the image.  I made a matte print (which I like for lower contrast, subdued colors) of this image and its quite nice.
