Why applying high contrast on flat photograph?

Most telephoto shooting in cloudy and hazy conditions tends to result in flat expression. The above photograph provides a flat expression due to inappropriate lighting condition that day, hence creating a depth less image. Usually, most photographers will just discard the photograph and move on. But what if you can revitalise the flat photograph into life by giving a high contrast style which can look like an oil painting? This is what I have done to it below.

Omaha Beach

Omaha is currently a striving town. It has an excellent beach that is catering hundreds of aucklanders each weekend. Don’t get confuse with the D-day landing zone in France, this is the southern hemisphere Omaha beach on the north island of New Zealand. It is a rural escape and a beach paradise for northern aucklanders. No wonder, everyone is invading this Omaha Beach now. Currently, it is a R-day or the Rich-day landing zone in New Zealand for the rich.

Share your favourite scenic pictures of New Zealand and be in to win

Great! There is a photography competition in New Zealand posted on NZHerald, but what is the catch for photographers? You need to either be a New Zealand resident or citizen in order to participate in it. At least that is the first criteria that I noticed before reading the rest of the terms and conditions. If anyone is more interested to read on their terms and conditions, the link is attached here (

Hold on!!! I just noticed the second bullet of the terms and conditions. As a photographer, you own the copyrights of your work but the promoter has the rights to freely use your work in its online and print publications? It means that if I submitted my work for this competition, I am giving the promoter the publishing rights to the submitted photograph. Even if I am not selected to be the winner or runners-up to get any of the prizes, I might still see my photograph used in their advertisements for free.
