I shot the Spooky Old House again today for comparison sake and because the drive isn't consuming. Big difference in end product with the 70-200mm from the same distance. Actually, I can't stop shooting this place. It is so completely odd, just like me.

    i don't think this image is salvageable because nothing can be done with the tree...it just doesn't work with the weathered clapboards and door......km

    kil roy ~ It was that tree that called my name, but for all the wrong reasons. I thought it added to the barren feel of the image. Then that little natural frame around the numbers and it was all over but the cryin'. Looking at it through your eyes I am seeing what everyone else was actually seeing. I really do need to lose the ego parasite that has attached itself firmly to my right frontal lobe. Lesson learned: Too much information is nothing more and nothing less than that exactly.

    An aside: The tree can be moved/removed with puppet warp. We'll see just how successful that will be later on tonight.

    This picture is perfect. (Well, if you're picky, you could take down the highlights and amp up the shadows a tad, but don't bother). It's striking. You take us both outside and inside this place, this life. The tree is reaching across the curtains and drawers. Nature is holding out its arms to stop the nonsense. The nonsense, the sadness, is the stuff we make or buy or hang up or display or want. And here we all are, at #229, quoting our history, showing our stuff, hiding behind the curtain - and the tree grows anyway. In plain sight. i love this picture a lot.

    Aaron ~ Lesson 2: It's all just so damn subjective. Shoot what you like and call it soup, yes? Thanks for the feedback friend.
