Re: Those pictures.

The low key and high key, are a good example that Photography is painting with light.

Pure logic is the ruin of the spirit.

Exactly so!

There is no such thing as "correct exposure" because it's subjective... it should be "correct exposure for.." something or someone.

The low-key is correct for a low-key, same thing applies to the high-key.

I admit I do like the low but don't particularly like the high - I think it needs to go even higher high-key.. but as far as correct exposure - they ARE correct for what they are and what the photographer wanted to do!

When it really gets to it - the best photo to take is the one that works for you or your customer.
Nothing else, and no other opinion, matters.
