Entropy and Photography
To view more of my photography please visit www.rakmilphotography.com
All photographers experiment, with HDR, software, perspective, textures, and light etc. Sometimes we are so delighted by the results we cannot help but share them.
We know what we like, or do we? The fact is that our views will vary over time. Our skills improve; our judgment is altered by experience.
Nothing is static and everything is subject to entropy including our feelings and judgments about our photographs.
This may sound negative, but it is also a reflection of our maturity, as time goes on our taste and sensibilities change. A few photographs pass the test of time, but do not expect all of them to do so.
The photograph above was taken a long time ago; after the transfer from film to digital (not always a gentle process) the only post processing adjustment I made was removing a black spot on one side of the tree. Everything else is natural. Years have passed and I still like it, others have disagreed and the statistics on my website show it.
