About eighteen months ago I went for a drive down to Cape Schanck to check it out. I’d never been there before, and I loved what I saw. After looking at Peter Eastway’s work again, I thought I might try doing a couple of the photos again to see how I would approach them now.
To see the original images, then go to the post, Trying to Make Decisions. The images I decided to do were the fourth and fifth ones.
I opened the image up and wondered what I was going to do to it, but I worked it out some. I changed the sky and did something to it that I saw Peter do, well what I think he did. I tried to highlight certain parts. You will have to judge for yourself if it actually works. I am not so sure about the sky.
You can see the original there, well the original as I processed it when I first did the image. I do like the intensity of the colours in the new one, and the cropping has made it a tighter image. The lone rock also looks so much closer.
The rocks stand out so much more and there is a lot more drama in the image. It almost looks stormy, which it wasn’t.
So, have I improved, well I hope so. I think there are good and bad things with these images, but it is nice to know that there are lots of possibilities these days. I know that Peter Eastway is responsible for me thinking this way and for making me realise that an image can be so much more, we just need to imagine it.
