Crystallized View (One-Photo-Focus March)
It’s where Stacy offers just the one photo for editing to anyone who is interested. This month we thank Nancy Merrill of Nancy Merrill Photography for the use of her intriguing photo. This my interpretation.
For this month’s editing I’ve severely cropped the photo so the just the staircase is left. Next I extended these stairs slightly to give the illusion the staircase is taking you to the top of the tree.
My next step was to “crystallize” this cropped image to create a uniformity of sorts then added a heavy vignette before the addition of a frame. Here is Nancy’s original photo for comparison.
As I say, I absolutely love this challenge as it’s so, so interesting to see how we’ve all taken the exactly same image yet edited in a different way… LOVE IT!
To me this is life… we can all hear and see the same thing yet so many times its interpreted differently.
