Challenge has finished
In B&W photography dodging and burning is common place. Show us a B&W image where you utilized this technique. A brief explanation: The Dodge tool and the Burn tool lighten or darken areas of the image. These tools are based on a traditional darkroom technique for regulating exposure on specific areas of a print. Photographers hold back light to lighten an area on the print (dodging) or increase the exposure to darken areas on a print (burning).

I used significant dodging to open the shadows created by the hard midday sun. I love these guys, just doing their thing, pushed by a single old dog. Pretty amazing!
