Autumn/Fall Colours Revisited
I have been sifting through pictures I have taken over the last year and reflecting on what I have learned, particularly with composition and processing. This image was taken last year at Morris & James Pottery in Matakana, Northland.
I knew what I was trying to capture when I took the photograph, but when I first saw the image on the computer screen I was disappointed. There was too much in the photo and the vibrancy of the colours shown in the window frame, pots and tree were flat and uninteresting. I passed over the picture and went on to another.
Today I have revisited a number of images I took that day and had another close look at them. This image was cropped from a larger picture that was cluttered with extraneous intrusions from three sides which made it a “nothing” shot. Upon revisiting the photograph with the benefit of time having elapsed I was able to see what it was that I had originally wanted to capture. Here is the result.
