Just a B&W photo, (Elgol)
6

I suppose I could've darkened the thin cloud and called it "Storm at Elgol," put my artistic stamp on it. But I don't think many would be really fooled no matter how dark I'd made it.

I claim no artistic merit or even intent. It's just that we get so lost in digital processing and our artistic expressions that I think we've forgotten how B&W images used to look.

This is not to say that we shouldn't explore either your own expression or the limits of digital processing, some are quite good here, (Weegee, though nothing like AA ). It's just that modern digital processing seems to have stripped much of the tonal range and texture out of B&W.

I just had a hankering for a bit of nostalgia.

Shot with an old lens, older camera and natty old Cokin filter, by an old photographer.
