Frosty trees from yesterday morning. It was a fruitful morning for me. :)

Yeah I knew they were there and positioned a power pole behind the frosty tree. They normally blend better but the frost really makes them pop.
I still like the shot; that is how it looked. Maybe one day they will bury those lines...

More Hurricane Michael Aftermath

It's a Winter's Day and this would not be an unusual sight, but these are Magnolias that do not lose their leaves... perhaps these will come back his spring...sighhhhhh.

Snow on a Dogwood, Rockville, Maryland, 2019 (specifically in my backyard, this evening, after a modest but very wet snowfall)

Nice, too bad about those power lines.

Now a related question:
If I were a painter painting that landscape, I would NOT paint those power lines . I'd leave them out
Inversely and as a humble photographer: what speaks against photoshopping out those power lines?

We are not charting trees, we are "creating works of art"  ::)
We're the whole time manipulating reality from the camera to the print trying to make something up to our expectations.
I see no point in leaving - as in this case - the power lines there. And this is - to me - valid for any disturbing artifact in any image.
Any opinions?

I'm not opposed to 'shopping out power lines for works of art. I just didn't have the patience for it with this shot to do it well. I actually made a version with them removed but it's not perfect and I'm not sure it's a special enough image to spend a bunch of time on. Maybe one day if I run out of other stuff to do (like that is likely to happen). :)

As for the trees, it looks easy, a lasso and a content aware magic - Presto!
For the red one there is of course no remedy. I would just blame my cat for those scratches on the left bottom corner
The power lines are less ugly

 ;)

Yeah, I did basically that and they are mostly gone but need some touching up that I haven't bothered to do.
