Huangshan on a white canvas

The uniqueness of the scene is that it recalls the traditional Chinese landscape painting, which is regarded as the highest form of art work. Inspired by painters employing the powerful black lines, sharp and dotted brushstrokes to represent the significant rough rocks on Huangshan, a method of black and white inversion is used to capture the picturesque landscape. Mist is used as the paint and canvas simultaneously to veil the mountain and frame the ever-changing scene. An interesting dialogue between the black and white is the aim that the photo wants to achieve.
