Two very different images, two very different treatments in post-processing. The Image of the Day was shot at the same place as “489 – Electric Ladyland III“, only some meters to the left and with a different lens. The landscape is completely dominated by masts and cables, dissonant as the rough, noisy finish that I have chosen. In contrast to this we have the undulating, horizontal lines of the other image, bucolic, soft, finished with a soft blur on top.
It would be about time to answer to Ted Byrne’s recent essay “What Do We Do After We Go “Wow”? The purpose of beauty in art photography“, and these two images could be an anchor, but it’s too late now. I’ll try it tomorrow 🙂
