A Survey - Door #1

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 18 August 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

For the next three days I will post this picture but in 3 different tones. At the risk of driving everyone crazy after three days of the same darn shot (just different treatments), I would love to hear your evaluation of each one. This is the "original" image to give you a "baseline" for evaluation. Like the old television game show here in the US, I'll call this "Door Number 1."

Denny's note at 0925 AM East Coast US Time(sorry cant remember where we are GMT-wise): DO feel fre to reserve opinions until you have seen all three, if you wish - Nigel has a great point below!

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
