The second meeting was on October 2, 2020 held in Rhenen, the Netherlands. We needed to focus on animal "parts" in which a head and eyes could not be seen, to learn to look differently at a subject. I will discuss two photos that I took that day. Here is the first image:
Title: Tortoise Rock
Process: a beautiful Brazilian giant tortoise (Chelonoidis denticulatus) was resting, allowing me to admire the large shell. Due to the heat my lens got blurred, so it was cleaned frequently!
Idea: The tortoise shell reminded me of a drone photo or video, as if you are flying high above huge rock formations, partly due to the beautiful red-brown-yellow tones.
Digital editing: the photo has been edited in PS Elements (dust removal, contrast, color). I applied the Levels (histogram) for a nice distribution of the dark and light areas.
What do I think of it? Nice distribution of shapes and warm tones.
The next image to focus on and discuss, is the following image:
