The first photograph is unaltered. It communicates several architectural details that I love: ironwork, stairs, light-filled window. There are strong diagonals and other features that may create interest in the piece. One in particular is the way the foreground is in focus, while the background is somewhat blurred. The shot is as is: Vienna 2009.
The second shot has been converted to black and white; sharpened; brightened; denoised; values heightened, among other alterations.
Interestingly enough, I kind of like both images. Each for different reasons. These photographs are sign posts for me. I learn from my experiments so that I can incorporate new skills into my commissioned or exhibition photography. The possibilities are limitless! www.ellenfisch.com
