This photograph was taken the other night whilst I was enjoying a quiet walk along our local canal.
This second image is the same photograph modified using a few adjustments to contrast, saturation, brightness etc. Some items & colours have been exaggerated; one or two things sharpened-up; a few details pulled from the shadows. A lot of the contextual detail has also been cropped or removed.
This final image is the same photo, except that much of the fine detail has been lost, colour balance adjusted, contrast & brightness changed to present a totally different perspective, creating a different emphasis, drawing our attention to other parts of the picture. A bit of zooming & cropping helps to present a different perspective, even giving the illusion of being from another time.
I was prompted to consider how often I present a situation to others that may be cropped or edited to show what I want, rather than the full picture (or situation) that really exists.
Just a few musings this Sunday morning.
Take care until next time …
