Three Ways To See A Tree

I went for a walk along the beach. I saw this tree and I just had to take her photograph. 

I immediately did what I think people call an emotive edit. It was pretty dark. That is posted at my Digital Bunny Instagram account. You can connect to that account by clicking on it on the right hand side of the screen. 

But then I wasn’t happy with it. So I worked on it some more. 

I now have three more versions of it. So I’m putting those up here. I would basically call these dark, medium and light. 

Initially, I thought I liked the dark one because it had the most intense colors and the most contrast. 

Now I just don’t know. Each photograph offers something unique to the viewer. All tell a story about the tree. They all have interesting textures and shapes. 

I’m relatively new to photography. What I don’t want to do is do what’s been done before. 

I’m retired. I have free time to play. So I want to play with my photos in a new way. I want to do all this on my iPhone and iPad mostly. There is a rumble out there going on in photography. It’s happening on the iPhone and iPads. I want to be part of that. It’s new, and it’s exciting!  It’s very cutting edge.

    By the way, I think I would have also liked the original—I think the composition and (apparent) textures and light would have combined to make a wonderful photograph. Nicely done.

      You’re like me, can’t make up your mind! That’s why I brought these over here. On Instagram people only put up their best one! Well, I just couldn’t narrow this one down.

    I like the yellow one, too, although I as scrolled through them, I liked each one, then I liked the next one best, then I liked the last one best. I’m like that with candy, too. So I think of them all as candy :). It’s fun to see you experimenting and sharing 🙂

    I think I like the last one the best. I’m really liking yellow lately.

    Hi Kerry. Like you, I’m a bit undecided about which version I like best. If I really had to choose, though, I’d pick the second one. I like the light-dark constrast, the colors, and especailly the prominence of the birds.
