I love it when a plan comes together
Continuing the experiment of the week. Back to the dreamy images. It's Mooragh Lake as the chosen subject. That ball of white light is actually the sun and this is a day image, late afternoon where the light is fading at this time of year to dusk. Always manual settings. This would not have worked on auto, but a small point and shoot on manual would do a fairly good job. You need to employ manual setting for fading light images as light travels as we know. Auto would just create possibly a blackened image all over or a harsh white on black with no nod to the subtle blue of the lake and no definition of the black silhouetted bare trees branches
Notice the small object just off centre? It's clear to see on the large file that it's a large pebble peeking through. This then is the quandary. The image is as I planned, seamless colours drifting into each other with no harsh lines, but the pebble is clearly defined. If an artist painted this scene they have the option to paint it in or paint it out. I too have that choice with digital wizardry to erase and clone the water creating the overall smooth image. It would be the only alteration. I choose not to thus keeping the image pure as it was taken, what I saw, what was there. That is the way photography is for me. It's what I enjoy best taking the mundane and making in surreal. I like the pebble today, for tomorrow the same scene it may have been displaced and a new fresh unique image can be created. It also gives me a chance to have twice of many photos to sell, pebble in, pebble out. Twice as many names to come with though.
B's today, black, branches, blues, bare, ball(of light) and for me bewitching. You may have your own.
So when I put this for sale what would you title it? Any letter you like. I have the title already.
Just curious to see how others see things and for marketing purposes and would this be best, matt or gloss.
