About the Image(s)

After a recent backpacking trip to Yosemite I wanted to capture the beauty created in the wake of last years fires. I really like the exposed orange wood created by the burning of the trees bark. I wanted to accentuate that color and this ultimately led me to adding fire back to the tree. By itself the image was interesting but I felt like something else needed to be added. Adding an observer seemed to work best. I included two versions of this to see what the group reaction is. I like the contrast of the second version but the first version has the monkey looking more directly at the fire. What do you think?

Yes Brad, original no. 3 with the monkey looking directly at the fire seems to engage him more, although the final presentation does show less of him cut off, so aesthetically I suppose one must opt for the final one. Good work!   Posted: 12/05/2019 14:02:00
