The halls of this building represent contrast. This hall is dark to begin with. And the windows provide the light and makes this photo unique. The other element that makes this different is that it was taken in black and white.
Great idea for yearbook teacher pages - CMYK layering - I think this looks so captivating to the eye, it is probably fairly easy to do, just taking all the other color values out of the photo but I like the layered effect.
The silhouette of the girl fading into the forest is a great use of Photoshop. The message of the picture may not be clear to everyone, but the design is very well done. The contrast between black and white is always a nice aspect to incorporate.
