Default June 2013 Photography Theme: Contrast

The theme for this month is Contrast. Definition is below, and feel free to interpret it however you like. You can post before and after photos to show your editing if you would like, multiple photos, etc. This isn't a contest, just a theme to get people active with photography. Edit, don't edit. Post various editing methods of one shot. Just wing it! Less rules, more freedom for interpretation. Hopefully we can all offer some good constructive criticism to help each other improve!

Definition of CONTRAST

b: comparison of similar objects to set off their dissimilar qualities : the state of being so compared <the enforced simplicity in this diary … is in contrast to the intensity of his former life — Times Literary Supplement>

3) a person or thing that exhibits differences when compared with another

Marcel, that's the same idea I had, but I think yours is better than mine will turn out.
