The above winter scene is from north of our home and one I drive by often. The image by itself was rather dull so I made two of layers on a software program from JixiPix and then merged them to arrive at the above image.
My friend Dan Ruf (at www.danielruf.typepad.com) and I visit often about what a photographers vision is and should be. One belief we both share is that the work only begins with the camera and where your vision leads you from there is often different for everyone. For me- sometimes when I click the shutter most of my vision for that capture is finished but more often than not I may spend hours or days reaching my final vision for that image.
The image above has taken on many changes over the years and as my talents improve - my visions also change. One thing I've figured out- is if you feel an image has possibilities -let it rest for awhile and come back later (sometimes years later) you never know where it may end.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
