About the Image(s)

I shot this image using the double exposure feature in my camera. It was processed in Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex. It was fun.

Barbara, well this is weird! But in a great way. One of the questions a photo judge always asks, so I am told is - why do you think the photographer took this shot? So I have to ask, politely I hope, 'how many had you had before this was taken or thought about?!' Were you trying to reflect an unsure state of being or were you seeing double for another reason? Whatever, it was I like the result especially the sepia finish and the retro border. Certainly a fun image but technically also very good.   Posted: 05/02/2023 11:03:56

Thank you, Peter.
I belong to an online photography club "52 Frames". Each week we have a challenge. One week the challenge was a "chair". I wanted to present the chair in an unusual way. Normally I don't use the double exposure feature. I submitted this image. The texture, shapes, and shadows were more pronounced in monochrome, and sepia complemented the wood.   Posted: 05/02/2023 12:22:17

Good Morning Barbara, I like this image. It makes you think and look at the image a long time. The only thing that I would like to see is more room around the chairs.   Posted: 05/08/2023 07:34:35

Wow, Barbara! I looked at this for a few moments before I read your description and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I like your choice of subject for this double exposure because the straight lines and right angles of the chair get sort of tangled together. Very interesting image (I like the sepia).   Posted: 05/13/2023 14:21:33

Barbara, I love the invention and I think the image came out crisp and sharp. The interplay on the top strut (?) of the back is particularly effective with the uprights of each image hitting the center of the curved wood: I think this interplay is the dominant feature in the composition. For me the framing was well chosen.   Posted: 05/14/2023 13:27:49
