Is the trash your best friend?
I know several photographers who have no mercy with photos that aren’t perfect at the first side (or after a small color adjustment). I can’t say the same about me.
My husband suggested me to isolate it and to use it for a photomontage. My husband says: “You must make isolation of object in the right day, for example, during days that you don’t feel creative.”
I didn’t feel the right mood for isolating the cross that day (well, it is hard that I have the right mood for isolating, but sometimes I do have it). I have started to play with selective color (blue), with channels mixer and saturation of blue colors. But the image was still too “flat”. So I continue to play – now with flares and lightning effects. Here is the result.
In the end, it was the right choice to keep this photo. I do consider the trash being my friend, but I admit I am not easily dedicating photos to my “friend”. What about you, are you generous with your "friend" the trash? :-)
