B&W Thumbnails

In this video I create 3 black and white thumbnails at about 20 minutes each. The theme is an old favorite castles and mountains! This is a very typical thumbnailing process for me when I'm brainstorming concepts. Starting from background to foreground I'm searching for large masses using very restrained values that produce pleasing compositions.
