For the benefit of those who have followed Russ's comments on this Forum, I have decided to provide some examples to illustrate my understanding of his ideas.
Herewith are some pairs of images, using a few of my own photographs to clarify Russ's Fundamental Principle (hereafter referred to as "the RFP").
EXAMPLE 1A is a straightforward B&W image of a wave splashing on a sandy beach (on Marthas Vineyard, Massachusetts). While naive viewers may find the various forms of white froth on gray sand interesting, it clearly lacks the essential element embodied in the RFP, namely, The Hand of Man.
EXAMPLE 1B shows the landscape of EXAMPLE 1A with the all-important addition of the Hand of Man, which clearly adds power and focus to the previously uninspiring image.
EXAMPLE 2A shows a tide pool on a different Massachusetts beach (Plum Island).
EXAMPLE 2B greatly enhances the image of EXAMPLE 2A by, again, inserting The Hand of Man.
It is my hope that these humble examples will result in a deeper understanding of the RSL Philosophy of Landscape Photography.
