The images I’m posting today are images that I’ve taken in the last couple of weeks that were “throw away” images in my mind. But I take on-line courses in Photoshop so as I try new techniques I practice on my own images and some of the techniques I’ve learned have helped enhance an otherwise throw away image.
I call the image above “Road to Nowhere.” I was taking some sunset images of the church and I liked the clouds and nice color in the sky with the road disappearing to nowhere. But in the RAW format it was really not much of an image. After trying a couple of different techniques on it I kind of like it now. You will have to judge for yourself.
Here is another image that the way it was captured did not appeal to me at all. In fact I was very close to deleting it from my hard drive. But after cropping the image and darkening the foreground… well again you have to be the judge. I kind of liked it. Perspective in photography (as in life) can make all the difference in an image. Uncropped it just wasn’t interesting but once I cropped it the sun became the dominate feature of the image and then it was more interesting.
Finally this image. Honestly even after I worked with it I still don’t like it. I remember framing it in the view finder thinking I really like the pattern of the hills and the combination of snow and bare ground but I was worried about the exposure because the light was so low.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but even my eye does not think these are beautiful images. I worked awhile on them however so I thought I would post them for your amusement. 🙂
Have a great Tuesday. Be careful out there since our old friend Winter has decided to stick around a little longer. Thank you for stopping by.
