OK, my last entry for today is another “twofer,” featuring two very different examples of my attempt to digitally repair an overexposed film image. I’ve never before posted this many photos in one fell swoop so thank you all for your patience and for sticking with me. That’s it for me today. Have a lovely evening!

  1. You know, I like both of these, but I like the top one best. “Overexposed” doesn’t bug me. Maybe it should, but I look at things much differently than regular photographers. I look at things through the eyes of a painter. Forget about photography rules and whatnot. Look at it as art, as an esthetic creation. I like them both, but I like the top one best. Why? Because … it’s better. My eye moves around the photograph in a more harmonious way than the bottom one. Does that make sense? Don’t look at things like a photographer. Look at it as a piece of art ;-)

    • Not at all! I appreciate your comment very much. I like the top one best, too, and find it much more esthetically pleasing. I might not have posted both but it was a test roll and my first experience with the camera and a light meter (even if it was via an iPhone app) so I thought I’d document the process a bit more than I normally do. I really do appreciate you taking the time to provide me with such thoughtful feedback. Thank you, Merilee!

  2. Hi Caryn, to be honest I totally agree with Merilee; the top one has the real feel and light to it and the overexposed parts dont bother and the little extra detail that you got out of it in the 2nd one doesnt make up for that in my opinion! Have a great weekend and really like the photo itself!

  3. Ok, at the risk of appearing contrarian, *I* much prefer the second image. There’s a coolness to the piece that I find very much in keeping with the solitary, rather desolate feeling the image conveys. To my mind, a harmonious blend of image and emotion. :-) Keep ’em coming, girl, you have the eye!!

  4. I agree with donnanddiablo. The second image conveys much more in emotion and tells a story without the distraction of the colors and exposure of the first. I really love the edit and have been meaning to talk to you about this particular piece. Remind me. :-)
