I don't know the location in this shot, but would love the photographer to share more information as to the images creation. I really like this image and I love images that make us think.

    If it were a neg I see it as 2 colour burns with a major 3rd burn for the sky/mountains whatever it is. On an image this broad it wouldn't be that difficult. I see this as being more graphic art than 'Fine Art' whether it is photoshoped or darkroom manipulated.

    I don't use various techniques to manipulate an image, only to make the film see what I see.

    There is a difference between manipulating the scene to make a scene which isn't real, which I don't do, and controlling your equipment to produce what your eyes see.

    When I look at a scene, I see colors vary brilliantly and satuated - this is the way my eyes (and mind) perceive color. We all see colors and saturation differently - just ask someone who is color blind what they see.



    This scene should be familiar to anyone in Australia. How many times have you seen the very spot done by other photographers? The scene is real, the viewpoint is real, the only thing subjective is its color and saturation. That is a personal perspective.

    excellent image Robert

    but i've never seen that place, that view, that way.

    how do i know it's 'real' and not just your interpretation or creation?
