Reflections to Ponder


Thanks Ben,

Yes ... the flotsam is definitely present in the two areas you mentioned.

Funny thing @ that ... my \"purist\" vein (and you didn\'t think I knew what the word meant ) is popping up a bit on this one. I\'m torn at taking them out vs. leaving them in, in the vein of \"no photoshop\" / \"au natural\". I kinda wish there was a \"big leaf\" ... or that dang turtle I was hoping to get in the scene (which just wouldn\'t follow my directions ) on the surface to help reveal some \"non-reflection\" element.

I\'ll likely take a look to see if I can pull them out in a way that I don\'t \"screw up\" the rhythm of the ripples (plausible realism). I was curious how noticeable they were ... but with the discriminating eyes we\'ve got around here in the land of the \"micro-nit\" ... what else would I expect except for it to be noticed.

BTW ... this will be a competition piece for a very specific theme @ \"Interpretive Representation of Artist\'s Sculpture in its Environment\" ... or something close to that. It\'ll be 1 of 3 pieces being submitted for jury selection by the Mitchell Museum representing their Sculpture Park. With that in mind ... thoughts @ printing ... matte, canvas, metallic, etc. should it make it past the jury selection.

FYI ... the dialogues we have here ... I try to carry them with me. Travis\' recent thread really resonated with me @ \"too subtle\" for competition as we all loved his image, yet sought to understand the judges response.
