day 147: tree monsters
Sometimes choosing a picture for the day is rather easy. Maybe I was trying around a lot until I got a specific picture right or maybe the composition was off for most of the pictures but one, or maybe I just wasn’t inspired and didn’t quite look properly. In the latter cases the picture of the day will be almost random, a picture that came about through pure coincidence. Or maybe I end up tinkering with a mediocre image until I liked it.
Other days there might several pictures with potential, a certain atmosphere to a few of them or some lucky street shots came about where I was paying attention at the decisive moment more than once. The last few days I was lucky more than once, but yesterday’s picture was actually quite planned. I took a similar picture the day before, but couldn’t get the composition right for the specific tree I was taking pictures of. One of the avenues in San Sebastian has many of them and yesterday I just picked another one. This time I’m really happy with the composition. In the edit I was going for “almost black and white” again, which I find actually quite interesting.
Still, although I planned this one, choosing yesterday’s picture was actually difficult again, because I had a few shots with a great atmosphere to them. It would be nice to post more than one picture, but I think this way I learn more about what makes the difference between a good picture and a very good picture.
