it’s all how you see it…

This picture (below) proves that my camera does not SEE the way I do. OK, yes, I wear glasses (sometimes) but when I looked through the back yards at this ‘scene’, the colors were so luscious, so nicely burnished and blurred except for the pinpricks of purple morning glories, you would have thought Claude Monet had put the scene together.
But my camera said no, it looked like this.
What’s the big deal? you ask.
I don’t know – I just wanted to catch the colors and the way they layered through the trees.
My camera is so objective; I am not.
And so I turned to my MS Digital Image software. Pure cheating. Pure fun. Pure fakery.
Nope, the above picture is too “sharp,” too grainy, tho’ I like the contrast.
Um, no, it wasn’t like the above, not a van-gogh-gone-palette-knife-crazy. No.
Still not there with the above filter, called “ink outlines” but I do like this one because the flowers “pop.” See ’em on the right?
