Experiments in tonality

I've posted this photo before, but thought I would share some experimentation I'm doing with black and white photography. Here are two versions of the same scene. The first is very similar to how the actual landscape looked, as it was a dark day and raining hard. The second version has been brightened considerably, almost to the stage of looking posterized. No matter how the background and mood are altered, the contrast remains very high and the flat gray light has compressed all details into silhouettes. I love the tricks of light!
