A last glimpse of the golden season through heavy eyes
Winter tugs and pulls towards deep slumber
Remembrance of moments passed
Fall from the branches of my memory
Until fitful sleep under Winter's blanket
An experiment in focus attempting to capture essence instead of detail. The autumn display this year was pretty dazzling in this part of southern Utah. More colorful and consistent than last year. Anyway, I have this fascination to attempt to make images that look more like paintings than photographs and so here is another attempt. No photoshop here. Some adjustments were made to the raw image in ACR but the image was purposely taken out of focus. Please take an extra moment to let your eyes adjust or maybe unadjust, as it may be. I notice when I have just looked at other images previous to this that are in focus, I tend not to be able to grasp the image. However, after a few moments, my eyes start to be able to recieve it.
SInce this is an experiment, I would really welcome any comments. I'm not sure I nailed it here but I think I like the style overall and would like to "see" this way more when I'm out and about and evolve this style. So, even if you are taking just a quick glance and have read this far, a comment would be greatly appreciated. Does any of this work for you? What does and what does not? Muchas gracias.
