iPhone photograph modified in Photoshop.
Even in winter the sun is intense here in Colorado and can really heat up a room. This curtain, which puts me in mind of butterfly wings, was keeping the sunlight out of the hair salon I go to, which has a southern exposure. I cropped the photograph and increased saturation slightly.
Two different versions of the same shot; wondering which one people will prefer. When I opened the original photograph onscreen I was struck by the resemblance to aspen bark. Besides a little extra saturation to the blue, the top version is just as the camera captured it. Later it struck me that a cropped version, rotated 90 degrees, appeared (to me) like a night landscape. There is so much to see even in a parking lot.
When I’m painting (which I don’t do often enough), I use a pie tin for mixing the acrylics. After the paint is dry in the tin I can usually peel it off in large pieces, which I then photograph. This is my favorite of the palette photographs I’ve taken. It’s what I’d like to achieve in painting, but haven’t figured out how to do.
