Artist's Description

This one was very nearly consigned to the trash can on my desktop. I thought about canning it, but after some fiddling around, came up with a composition that was interesting.

This is a bit of a departure for me, as I’m not one to flaunt my prowess with photo editing software (this is because I have a finite amount of patience with photo-editing software). I try to make a photograph appear as natural as possible, and if/when there is need for some editing, it is kept to an absolute minimum.

Its kind of a way to keep the reality aspect of the photograph intact. This may sound odd, coming from someone who specializes in abstract, expressionist, and impressionist photography, but it is a pet peeve of mine (for my own work, that is).

So, in order to keep the record straight, I’ll dish on the details….I boosted the saturation in Green by 4%, Brown/red by 6%, and upped the “black point” setting from 3 to 7 (on a scale of -3 to 40). I also toned down the whiteness of the background by 4%, and removed a ton of dust caused by shooting this image at f/38. Finally, I cropped the image to 16:9, but this is great, cause it now fits HD screens perfectly…!

Okay, that’s the scoop. Gotta step outside of our boxes every once in a while to remind ourselves we’re living….
