A few weeks ago I posted about the reasons why I didn’t have favorite pictures of the Hudson. The favorites come and go depending on the whims of the time and the tides.
This image is a perfect example. When I first showed it to my various critical circles it received a very positive response: I had really drawn out the meaning and focus of the image. That mirrored my own feelings but there was a significant minority that felt it was desperately overworked and crying for attention.
About a year later that view became mine.
Now…I’m torn. I think I will go back to the basic raw image and see what develops. In the meantime, any thoughts are welcome!
