| p.1 #6 · p.1 #6 · A couple of dusky Namibian landscapes - too quiet?? |
Gregg, Ernie & Zeph - I really appreciate your comments and thoughts and it's very interesting to see how different images are received in different places...
Just to answer a few things:
Regarding the processing - I know I could bring out contrast and colours to a greater degree but I have deliberately portrayed what I saw - at least I hope I have - which was very gentle colours and light - after the sun has gone down. I love drama and contrast as well, when it is present, but these scenes were all about the reverse.
Regarding composition - they are both deliberate, though I do have both wider and tighter scenes of the 2nd - this was my favourite because of the red and blue light on the mountains. Of course nature rarely gives us everything we want - but this was the closest I could get with that landscape and for my tastes. Zeph - I quite see what you mean about that smaller tree yet, strangely, it had not struck me, nor others who've commented elsewhere. Yet now you've mentioned it, I wish it wasn't there ;-)
Ernie - I don't have a wider version of this view of the dunes but can see where you are coming from. There is a danger that the detail and feel can get lost in the endless dunes if you go too wide but I can't now remember if this could have worked as such.. As always, you have to choose a cut-off point and often it represents some kind of compromise.
Anyway, many thanks for taking the time and trouble to give feedback, Lizzie
