Vote for Your Favorite Rendition of “Ice Lake” Photo
Good photography does more than capture a moment. It evokes an emotion; it speaks to your soul.
One of the cool things about photography is that there are literally an infinite number of ways that a single photo can be rendered to not only maximize the emotional response, but to also evoke different emotional responses.
Before I begin working with a photo I often start by thinking about the emotion I want to convey. Then, I settle into that emotion until I can clearly feel it in my gut. As I work with the photo I periodically check to see if what I am seeing matches the feeling in my gut. When they match I know I am done.
I call the photo below Ice Lake. It was taken on a sunny November day at Jackson Lake in the Grand Teton National Park. I experimented with creating several interpretations of this photo, each with a different feeling in mind.
I’m curious to know which rendition is your favorite and I’d love to hear your reasons for choosing the one that you did. Click on an image to enlarge it.
