As I said it’s an enchanted forest… just appeared like this on my iPhone, with the Hipstamatic stuff. And to add to my crimes, there was no sun! I added the sunrays with Luminar. So it’s a 100% artificial contraption, never really happened. But yes, I think it’s not too bad. Might be true that the essence of photography is in the end product…. Thanks anyways! LikeLike Reply Who knows, who knows. Yesterday I read one classic czech blog – guy is writing for 20 yeras or so. Anyway, he had same thoughts as in your comment. In his blog post he copared iphone shots – no filters vs with aplied filters. His conclusion was: “I feel embarrassed from all this. The photos with filters looks somewhat more appealing (catchy), but I am in disagreement a bit – Photo should be a photo and not a children coloring book.” I feel same as this sir. If you want to see his post – just to se those pictures. It is ni Czech: http://digineff.cz/clanek/fotografujeme/na-vylete-s-mobilem LikeLike Reply I liked his comparisons! Sure the photos with applied filters look more ‘catchy’ but in a way that Fuji Velvia looks more vibrant than Kodak Portra film. All a question of (bad?) taste in the end. But I admit that I went over the top with this photo. I was quite amazed at the way Luminar added those sun rays though. LikeLike Frank, your photo is a long way from horribly overprocessed digital images that are rife online these days. Whilst I don’t like doing lots of post processing, and prefer to set up a camera so as far as possible I can use photos straight out of camera, any digital image is fair game for a bit of further digital tweaking. It’s when people spend a lot of time and effort digitally altering film photos I start to wonder what the point is… 🙂 LikeLike Reply Well this one was fast. Hipstamatic does it by itself and adding sun and rays in Luminar took 10 seconds… LikeLike Reply in real life adding sun can take houres 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Do you think so… I said ‘Let there be Light’ and there was Light!
