You have the image of “slump” in your mind. Shoulders slumped down, and it’s not because you’re doing it because you’re supposed to, such as when you’re lifting weights. No. Instead, it’s mental, creative. Ah, shucks, alright, just mental.
I’ve been in a photographic slump going on for a couple years now, which is why these posts have been infrequent; and even when posts have appeared, they have tended to be mere snapshots.
I am far from over it. But more than one professional with whom I have communicated has suggested, inter alia, trying a different approach or style to a scene. So that’s what I’ve done, below. Just one.
Loving fall color, loving fog, I garnered enough energy to go out on a shoot the other day. The image I liked the best compositionally, was nice. It was also uninspiring. So on the advice of the pros, I transformed it into something different.
Although the underlying images had their chromatic aberration successfully corrected, and this attempt did not, I am not so concerned about the CA here. I think this image is best seen double-clicked to enlarge. The intent is to transform the scene into much more an Impressionist rendition. I hope you like it. Heck, I hope I like it!!
