helping me to understand...
The beauty is that you are making the effort to see! You did not dismiss this image...you went to work wondering. Just a thought though. These spaces, these places have volume and stories. They surround you, closely or large writ. You can feel the temperature on your back...the color floating there is describing the shape, the volume, the speech and language of that place. Now you may wish to see on the desk before you a pleasurable and warm assembly of colors and that is fine. That is purpose built and as such can be magnified as you chose to do. But this place drew the photographer for just what it is. (The other edit offered above I just don't feel I can comment on with any veracity because I have the sense here and elsewhere that there are calibration issues at play) In your case I see clearly your thinking and strongly sense your willingness to step well out of your close vision to another level entirely and I celebrate that juncture for you. I envy the photographers that see and feel behind themselves, around themselves and manage through careful study or luck to pass that forward to the viewer...not just a pretty group of pixels arranged for pleasure but with a story of place to tell. A studio drop cloth did not unroll behind the photographer here isolating that in front of the lense from the location...the location and its volume came to us beautifully observed and expressed. There is no right or wrong... but the gift of finding oneself in a place that makes us work harder is the beauty of it all....and how fortunate we are to have these opportunities at all!
(an aside...Rob C is doing some wonderful cell phone captures of rust, chips, peels..even they exhibit this sense of volume...it is so much more than color and/or temp...while it is easy to be drawn to the voluptuous nature of his portraits, they too have that sense of more behind/around us in that space)
Anyway...have stayed too long...stay open!
