Today I found this completely overexposed pic from last fall in Colorado and worked on it a bit. I think it looks like a Japanese-style painting.
I'm glad you decided to mess with this one, Cristóbal. I think it's a stunning image. Well done, buddy.
Many thanks Tom. I was going through my files looking for another picture and saw this completely white thumbnail, opened it, lowered the exposure a lot and saw the origins of this.
My neurotic aversion to scenes that are slightly tilted gives me problems with this one. But I like the ingredients and the general approach.
More than once I've found that overexposed shots worked well as high-key black and white images.
Thanks Don. Here's a revised version a bit less tilted perhaps.
Once again, your artistic flare is spot-on.
I believe you are on target with the thought of the similarity to Japanese screen print.
It would be interesting, IMHO, to see this image broken in thirds and displayed as a three-panel image photo.
Enlarged and copied onto fabric, this image could easily be used in making a Shoji Blind.
Well done and very creative.
Interesting idea! Thanks. I will give it a try.
