it's winter here in my city. it's boring, cold and miserable, as i am one who is originally a native of a tropical land where we have summer ,sun, sea and sand all year round.
i am not a big fan of winter. i don't even dream about white christmas, as it is a nightmare to me. lol. i just don't like anything that feels as cold as my refrigerator.
well, so what does one do in winter to beat what they call SAD, or seasonal afflicted depression?
i guess one thing to do is to dream of summer...
or you can dream of everlasting love even though there is really no such thing as everlasting love, lol.
or you can simply make photographs for Dreamstime
about ... well, .....
this is a question many of us , i am sure, asked ourselves sometimes.
we made a little "boo boo" and find our work in question. do we have the objectivity
to say , "no, this won't do", to ourselves. it's not easy to destroy what you created. we are too attached to what we create.
photography is not unlike parenthood. lol..
it's about accountability. and many times, the time we avoid the accountability we actually waste even more time trying to save the tragedy of
our terrible work.
post-processing is a double edged sword. it enhances our work, but other times, it can
destroy the essence of our images when we fail to stop at the right time.
even more so, when we think we could "rescue" a shoot, and skip having to do a reshoot.
yes Electrochris , agree. i am technically minded, but i think IM adds something like PS unsharp masking. and if you zoom in 200% or more, you see it's not sharp, but really some kind of darkening to make it "seems sharper". and if you're one who can hold the camera steadily, you won't see such "ghosting" in a truly in focus image. IM "sharpness" is not clean.
