Fall impressions (cont.)

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.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    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.
