One does a whole painting for one peach and people think just the opposite – that particular peach is but a detail.
Earlier in the week, I blogged a beautiful place in Second Life called “2304 Rain”. While it is a visually stunning location, I am, primarily a portrait photographer. It’s rare that I take a photo that doesn’t include a human being. While I love to find beautiful locations for my backdrop, I always focus on the person, whether it is me or someone else.
For this challenge, I could have chosen to take a photo that had a person (me) as the subject and rework it so that the focus is the location. In this shot, the location is the star – the detail is drawn from the way I have cropped and processed the picture.
This is the raw shot:
And this is my take on “Lost in the Details”:
I was drawn to the floating umbrella when I picked this spot to shoot. It was a small detail in the original, but in the reworked image, it’s now the star. The umbrella has become my peach.
