This is the kind of pixel abusion the words “digital darkroom” came to conjure during the great digital conversion of aught one. It may be damn pretty but where is it still more a manifestation of photographic prowess and where is it more graphic design? Does it even matter anymore? Did it ever? I was certainly hypnotized into believing it did for many years and, still, at times get a little hobbled by the hang ups introduced by fear and elitism. Shame really. At least this image’s 1000 words do more than this post’s wimpy 94 (109).
P.S. The original was shot in 2008 on an Olympus SP350. It remained unprocessed until February 2017.
