I love when I am able to capture an image that is not only a great photograph, but also a great photograph with complexity to it. I think in large part this is a critical element to finding our own unique vision. Once you have a vision, the challenge is then learning the craft of photography so you can accurately capture and share that vision with your audience.
An example of this is the image above of the Fat Bikers riding back down the beach, supposedly to where they came from. The scene is complex with riders, sand, mountains, tracks that are not filled in and tracks that are. You can make this image about so much more than biking. I am still debating on color v. black and white because I feel each portrays a different 'primary' message. One is about mountains and beaches, water and sand. The other is about lines and abstraction, with a few metaphors of life thrown in to the mix. I would love to hear your thought on which one works best for you.
