I recently discovered the Kagyu Macang Tibetan Monastery where a monk kindly allowed me to take a few photos of the exquisite bronze works outside of the temple entrance.

This photo was taken by a Zenza Bronica S2 medium format film camera and NIKKOR-P 1:2.8 f=7.5cm lens using Kodak T-MAX 100 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally rendered with Photoshop.

Superb in black and white.

There was just enough light to squeeze out a decent image.

Lovely details. Fine toning too.
A dark background would amplify the figure. IMHO.

The image was "in the dark" as it was. Although I agree with your assessment, the observant monk who gave me permission to shoot some photos would have set this dragon upon me if I were to have arrived with lighting equipment and a dark background prop.
Of course, I could "fiddle" the image in my "digital darkroom" to mask the background and turn it in a black void . . .
