Jazz Potato by Meowgli Jazz Potato by Meowgli
Couldn't think of a title and was listening to some Mr Scruff while finishing the edit... when I thought of a shot called Jazz Potato it made me giggle too much not to use it as a title...here's the track (bit of a slow starter): [link] :lol:

Anyway the shot... a simple one from a couple sunsets ago. This field is on a hill by the way, so in fact the image IS straight. I tried further "straightening" it but it robbed the comp and sky of some drama so I left it as I shot it. Really keen to try shots like this again when I finally get some ND filters... can't wait to turn fields into big blurry seas of green... have I mentioned lately that I miss living by the sea?

Oh, the "straight" problem.. I know it well, people just told me I should fix the horizon, but it would have destroyed the composition.

I see what you mean, the tilt works nicely with the curves :)

In some way, some people, are quite TOO fixed on technical terms and forgetting the mood and the feelings the image is transporting.

(I suppose it is a real German problem here, because we got many technical Freaks here, just excited because of technical fascination, not interested in a photographic philosophy...)

I agree, it's a tough one. There's no doubting the importance of technique, but most important of all I always say is the "feel" of a shot. I guess it's all about striking that balance between left and right brain; between logic and gut instinct ;)

Yes, never heard Mr Scruff before, I like it. Do you like Gorillaz?
