Often I find it very difficult to choose lighter or darker when making monochrome pictures.
How do you decide? What is your oppinion about bw?
I find my eyes focusing different parts depending on light/dark. In the lighter ones my eyes focus the shadows and in the darker they focus the chair.
Here I like the lighter better. What about you?
Most light above and dark below for bw.
Darkest for bw.
Last one I straightened up a little using the horizontal sitting line in the chair.
Standard for bw.
