Well, sorry, but none of them moves me …The sepia and vintage are too flat in overall tone and contrast. That leaves the blue finish … but sunflower pictures should make me happy and hopeful, but none of them does that. If that was the authorial intent, then you’ve succeeded wildly.
Well, at some level I shot what was there and went with it. I wanted that blue to pop, but it was a cloudy day so there was some built-in ambivalence, I guess you’d say.
The other two were me practicing, I guess. A lot of people are very good at that kind of look and I’m not, so it seemed a chance to have a swing at a style I wouldn’t mind being more accomplished with.
