Exercise in black & white

Recommended Posts

An interesting photograph, prompting a few questions!

 

1. What does the 'straight out of camera' version look like?

2. What were your editing steps in Affinity Photo?

3. What is the subject of the photograph??

Thanks for those details. However, I'm still not sure what the subject is! My best guess is that it's a photograph of seedlings in a nursery.

Unless I'm mistaken, I've seen this kind of thing before but I don't know what it's called.
I think it's a kind of farm "road" surface that allows for drainage across a wide area while still letting vehicles move across it without creating ruts in the soil. I think it also acts a bit like a cattle grid.
I haven't seen one for years but I don't get into the country much these days.
