Several months ago, Bruce Percy inverted some of his images to create, essentially, photo negatives. It worked rather well.

I thought I’d try it.

    • Yes. That’s what Bruce was doing and I thought this image might possibly suit itself to that. Turns out there was a lot more tonality in the sky than I had realized. I actually had to tone it down for this to work at all.


  1. I think it would be great to have the two hanging next to each other or mounted in a double mat one atop the other. In a totally unrelated but barely germane comparison…one of my jobs is to reupholster dining chair seats. Sometimes people prefer the backside of the fabric which often is almost as opposite the front side as your two versions are to each other. I don’t think I prefer one over the other and were I a collector I think the double mat would be my request.

  2. For me, the bright white background of the site is fighting a little with the image – I find myself wanting to see it on a different surface. But I’m all for the experimentation!
