I’ve been compiling my sky photos and I have a few sunsets that I would like to share because I’m in a sunset kind of mood.
I don’t really know what that is exactly, but I’m going with it.
Neat-o stormy sunset. The lower clouds look like kind of like mountains.
I don’t have the photo editing software that I hope to become super handy with just yet, so I am just using the standard Microsoft Office photo editor. It’s amazing to me to see how much even this basic software program can do to enhance a photo.
This was a dreamy sunset last week, unedited.
And here it is with a basic autocorrect in my photo editing program.
I love the softness of the original.
But the editing sure does add some drama.
I haven’t decided how I feel about photo editing just yet. They’re great for portraits, but with photos of nature where you are trying to portray a scene as it was in reality, I almost feel like a fraud if I edit the photo.
Editing can make a good photo great, but it does it compromise its integrity?
I don’t know.
But I do know that I like sunsets, edited and unedited.
I guess it comes down to deciding if I am a photographer or a photojournalist.
This makes me sleepy.
Way too much deep thinking for a Friday night.
Y’all sleep tight,
