365_290 / Mmmm... that is SO good!
An experiment in post-processing... leaning heavily into a
photo-illustration style. I know... not everyone's cup of tea. =)
An alternate treatment of a photo I've used in a triptych earlier
(365_264 / Gettin' Dirty).
SOOC was uninspired, a complete miss of an expressive
moment. And in this case, it's NOT the photo itself that is the
hero... there are any number of issues with it. But the moment
of ice cream bliss is priceless! So... how to 'get there'?
Working this photo to this degree is one way... but by no
means the ONLY way.
My goal is to showcase the moment... rather than simply an
all-out attempt to hide the flaws in a truly photo-realistic way.
Next time I think I'll dial down the noise a bit more... even
though within the context of this style, I like it well enough.
Never... stop... learning. =)
