Earlier on in the week I sent 3 photos to the good people at Resolve photo for printing on 16 x 20 paper.
Yesterday I picked up the photos.
In RA-002, there is only one image repeated multiple times, and there is no fence alone photo. The resulting image is ok but the boldness is not conducive to holding ones attention. The mind and eye quickly leave. It is good and is a 3.
In RA-004, there not enough colour separation between the bag and the land. Whatever else the photo has going for it, is overshadowed by that problem. It is bad and is a 2.
In RA-005, not all the photos are the same. There is enough subtlety to hold the eye and mind. I am inclined to linger. It is very good and a 4. April suggested that it does not read well vertically and it should be recomposed as a horizontal. Initially I balked. Now, after a nights sleep, I think she’s right. It could become a 5.
As always, the printed photo is more revealing than the onscreen version. It was a satisfying exercise. I am not as close to having a finished dozen as I thought. On the other hand, I know what I have to change.
I am content with continuing the journey.
