It’s no April Fool’s Joke when Cheri Lucas Rowlands lays down a landscape photo challenge. Cheri has even provided some helpful hints on getting it right.
Laying out a landscape photo is not as easy as it looks. I know. I’ve taken thousands of bad snapshots that I thought were good landscapes.
I’m adding a recent photo of a land/city scape from Crissy Field in San Francisco to the mix. I’ve also included my original snap and some of my own hints you might find useful. The shot is not print-worthy but sometimes landscapes just let you re-live a moment in time like a lovely Easter Sunday with family and friends. And that’s worth something!
Have a beautiful weekend.
Memories are inextricably linked with photos, good or bad. To be able to correct the latter is a blessing, but not always necessary.
Yes and no. It is what you saw too. Not the fact that your camera’s censors cannot capture what you saw doesn’t mean that it isn’t what you saw AND how you want to remember it. Because what your eyes saw (views in general, colors, dynamic, etc.) there in the first place was the reason why you want to take a photo of this! And because of that, the one that you processed looks more appealing and attracts more people to the landscape location – SF. Speaking of SF, I really should make a trip up there to get some gorgeous shots!!!
