it’s that time of year, again



I was asked once if I arrange leaves for a photo.  When asked a question about photos I try to be forthright and honest.  My answer in this case was “sometimes”.  Generally, I don’t arrange leaves or almost any objects in the nature shots but I will try to remove some distractions that I don’t think would be of interest to the composition, if at all possible.  Sometimes it’s not possible to get the look I wanted and I have resorted to using the clone stamp tool to remove unwanted elements, but this is rarely done.  Sometimes it’s hard to improve on what you naturally see.

    Personnally I do not rearrange objects or things that nature offers me, I try to catch nature as it is but it did happen on a few occassion that I removed something small things that are blocking what I considered a perfect view

    My personal approach is that there’s nothing wrong with a little “landscaping” to clean up a background or to remove something distracting. Mother Nature isn’t necessarily a photographer!

    I don’t have any issue with rearranging things a bit, if it results in what I think is a better photograph. Like a painter painting a landscape, I’ll take things out as I see fit. It’s all about the end result!

    Sometimes you can’t improve on nature, and sometimes you can. Whichever applies here is immaterial – it’s just a great abstract design. All we need to do is look down and just tip toe through the leaves and find those potential images. Well found, Ken
