This picture was taken about twenty minutes before the post entitled “Rolling Hills – Harris”.
At the time I took a series of eleven shots of these four lads with a 400mm lens as they walked in to the distance.
It has similar design principles to Rolling Hills – Harris, with the white line of the road marking at the bottom of the picture and strong dynamic diagonal composition from left to right. I do not recall have any set ideas about the types of pictures I wanted to take on Harris.
I would certainly love to go back to Harris to do a series on the “Golden Road” a single lane track with passing places that joins desolate communities on the eastern side of Harris. Its called the Golden Road because of the expense of its construction through bog, rock and water.
This picture has been sitting on one of my external hard drives for six years not being noticed. This picture is different from all the others sat there because I have worked out that I flipped it horizontally and cropped it in CS2. Isn’t Metadata great I would have never remembered that I was using CS2 in 2006.
I did a copy of this file and tried to process it with Lr4.1 but could not get anywhere near the feeling of the original. So that is what I have shown you here. The (Irish) Whiskey must have been working well that night in 2006 when I did the original processing.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog, why not drop by and leave a comment?
