Celmins Night Sky #20

Celmin's photograph, Night Sky #20, captures how the night sky has its own gray scale and value. The stars represent a high value, while the dark sky represents low value. The reflected light from the star clusters in the center of the piece create an almost middle-gray in comparison with the black sky and the white stars. This is also present on the top-left side of the photo, extending to the edge. The right side and the other three corners have a much lower value. I like this piece because it shows how the way we percieve color is present in nature.
