I always like stark pictures. Black and white, I believe, is the best medium for stark, contrasting images, and whenever I get the chance - and can afford the twice-as-expensive black and white film - I try to take some (stark, contrasting) pics which I hope come out the way I like.
The keyword here, though, is hope. They almost never do. This one is about halfway there, but I had to bump up the contrast to get rid of the dull look that I always get when I get my darker images processed. A curse on all film labs.... anyways, I ramble. Do scrutinize this image, and let me know what you think.
