Glad you liked, Jag: The same world that attracts your creative eye as well.
I can see several of these being made into large prints for my living room, particularly the multi exposures. Nice work, Alan.
Thanks Ken. Operators are standing by for your order :)
Lovely. I like how you include the subtler shades of fall leaves along with the more saturated ones.
Thanks Linda. It was an enjoyable challenge trying to make something out of relatively undramatic and unnoticed fall scenes. All but the first image were made within a two-block radius of my city apartment the day after a northeaster, looking either down at the sidewalk or from within or around my car.
Tausend dank, Daniel.
What a treat! The windshield leaves and the two wet leaves compositions after that appeal to me the most. Maybe. But wait, there’s more! Just the fact that you put the more realistic version on the right instead of the left for “Fig Leaves” is surprising. I would expect the out-of-the-camera version to be on the left, in the “first” position, and the other to be seen after it. So that made me go back and forth over and over. :-) (I hope you can make sense of what I’m trying to say). The last two with their subtle colors are beautiful as well. Lots to love!
Thanks Lynn. That’s an interesting question you’ve raised about the image arrangement in “Fig Leaves.” I don’t recall putting too much thought into it: I just liked the way things looked when the two layers were first brought into a new file. I did try positioning them in a mirror configuration but rejected that alternative. I was more intrigued by the unusual palette in the original, how similar the processed version was, and the tension that resulted from trying to figure out which was which.
Based on your comment though, I just tried reversing the two images and found that I still prefer this one — maybe because I’m just accustomed to it :)
Perhaps I’ve been influenced too by traditional newspaper practice that placed the most important article in the upper right-hand corner. Is this still done today though? I do all my newspaper reading online and haven’t read a print version in many years.
