Photo Of The Day by Todd Young

Central Coast California by Todd Young
Central Coast California by Todd Young

Today's photo of The Day comes from Todd Young. He captured this scene along the Central California and he submitted the photo to the Black & White Special Issue Assignment  which is open for submissions through midnight tonight. I particularly like the fact this image doesn't show excessive contrast and it appears balanced between highlights, mid-tones and shadows. Some scenes lend themselves to extreme contrast, but this coastal vista, which Young photographed with a slow shutter speed to smooth the water, is best served by a more subtle use of contrast.

I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including AssignmentsYour Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
