Walt Disney World Swan, and Photo Moods

Where are the Swans?

The walkway between the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels offers this interesting view of the Swan here, seen from near the Dolphin. I like those straight lines and palm trees, even if the palm trees do block some of the view of the Swan, including the actual swans on the roof. I wouldn’t get rid of the palm trees just for that.

Photo Moods

A friend described my current photo processing style as moody, compared to my bright and colorful photos of a year or two ago. That is probably pretty accurate. I still like colorful photos, but they may not be quite as bright as they used to be.

To me, that is the neat thing about photos in the digital age. You can make them look however you want them to look. In the old days, you could only do that if you knew how to operate the lab’s developing equipment, which I couldn’t do. But now you can give your photos all sorts of interesting looks. And if I decide I don’t like it later on, I can always go back and process the same photo again in a completely different way. I have only done that once or twice, but that option is still there.

Also, if I decide I want to process my photos in a different way, I can completely change how I do things just by changing the settings in whatever program I am using. I really don’t think I have one specific style that I have always used over the years. Rather, my style is constantly changing from one day to the next, going along with whatever whim I may have at the time. Brighter? Sure. Okay, now more subdued? Fine.

Sometimes, someone will come along and say, “I don’t really like how you did that one.” And that is fine. Everyone has opinions, after all. But I am really processing these for me. So although I don’t mind hearing comments, it may or may not change the way I do things.

But I still love to hear your comments. Keep them coming.
