Artist's Description

IN THIS PHOTO, THE PILOT OF THIS CROP DUSTER, GETS A RARE LOOK AT JOYCE ISLAND, IN THE MONTEZUMA SLOUGH AREA OF THE SACRAMENTO DELTA WATER SYSTEM, IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. I SAY RARE BECAUSE IT IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC MOST OF THE YEAR AND YOU HAVE TO APPLY FOR A FISHING PERMIT IN ORDER TO FISH HERE, ONCE A YEAR. THE HUNTERS GET TO HUNT WILD PIG HERE ALSO AND I HAVE HEARD COYOTE YELPING FROM THE ISLAND AS WELL. SO THE PILOT’S JOB TODAY IS “CROP DUSTING JOYCE ISLAND”, A JOB THAT ONLY TOOK HIM ABOUT 15 MINUTES TOTAL FLYING TIME AROUND THE AREA. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS SPRAYING, EITHER MOSQUITO KILLER OR FERTALIZER. THOSE ARE THE ONLY THINGS I CAN THINK OF THAT MIGHT GET SPRAYED ON JOYCE ISLAND. THE BUILDING IN THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER IS THE CHECK IN SHACK. IT IS ONLY USED A COUPLE OF TIMES EACH YEAR, OTHER THAN THAT, IT SITS THERE EMPTY MOST OF THE TIME. THIS SHOT WAS ONLY OK, THE COMPOSITION IS FINE, BUT THE LACK OF COLORS AND SHARPNESS, LEAD ME TO TRY A DIFFERENT APPROACH WITH THIS SHOT. AFTER THE NORMAL COLOR CORRECTION AND QUICK FIX, I SHARPENED THE ENTIRE IMAGE ONCE AND SHARPENED THE EDGES ONCE AS WELL. THEN, I POLARIZED THE IMAGE AND IT TOOK ON A MORE APPEALING LOOK. IT LOOKS MORE LIKE ART SHOULD LOOK AND NOT JUST SOME BOARING IMAGE THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULDN’T GIVE A SECOND GLANCE TO.
