ICM impression of a fog bank coming in on the beach.

I was thinking, after the past few days a little more color might be nice. Just a little.

  1. It’s good that your photo of a fog bank can still rouse such high interest in viewers, given the very low interest banks now offer. Would that banks, rapidly, went back to giving savers a little more interest. Just a little.

  2. The blue/brown contrast is interesting. The white horizontal lines stir the imagine. Thank you for sharing your work. Be safe. Be well.

  3. A little color is nice. I appreciate black and white images, and I understand why so many photographers prefer working in b&w at least part of the time, but my response to them is seems intellectual rather than emotional, if that makes any sense. On the other end of the spectrum, I’m not at all fond of overly saturated color, or color for color’s sake, but there’s a large sweet spot, roughly between this image and your abstractions of the California poppies, where I’m really happy.

    • I understand. The images of the last few days actually are color images but the color is toned way down. This particular one is desaturated quite a bit as well. Watch for the image that I put up tonight which might hit your sweet spot. The poppies really are intended to be explosions of color, because that’s what they are in nature.

  4. That’s a nice amount of color and all the bands and layers are pleasing. I especially like the warm tones spreading softly toward us and the even more subtle hint in the sky.
