Shadowed WPC

This week's WP challenge – shadowed- has given me reason to think whether I may be guilty of too much editing. The first shot above- taken over the New Year while in San Diego- is a case in point. I was tempted to use adjustment brushes to remove the dark shadows and give greater clarity to the installation. I am glad I left it as I think the dark shadows do bring something to the shot. The day time shots of this installation called Unconditional Surrender can be viewed here.

I think this sunset off the west coast of Guernsey is similar- the dark shadows of anonymity attract rather than detract from whole shot. Hope you agree.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I’m relieved to know I’m not alone in wanting brush away shadows 🙂 thanks for info- I realised it was based on a reunion which had been photographed and was blown away by the size and detail of it. Anne
