Taking a Mulligan

Nixon_120604_0763-Edit-Edit

Everyone deserves the opportunity to have another go, to reinterpret and reimagine their work. The more that I understand lightroom and photoshop the more possibilities there seem to be. In an interview with Michael Kenna I recently read he said that one of photography’s greatest strengths is that it is (or at least was) tied to reality. That tie is clearly broken for those that wish it to be. While I’ve yet to push reality hard, I have started to play a little. The image at the top of the page is a reworking of the image that I posted a few weeks ago based on the feedback that i received here and to fix a few things that bugged me which I didn’t know how to fix at the time. So a mulligan, a do over, let me know your thoughts.

  1. I like the second rendition better, and for the record, I believe we are allowed to attempt to make an image as near to what we perceived it to be when we captured it.

  2. Excellent do over! I’ll be interested in hearing how you cut out the transition section

    1. I’ve been playing around with content aware fill and content aware scaling in photoshop. This image was the product of some playing with content aware scaling. Quite a remarkable tool.
