Susan called this photo “A Complete Color Palette in One”. This time, in our photo/stories series, we agree. Of course, there are slight variations. Below, read the details on how we see this photo. Then tell us if you have another way of looking at it.
Susan says: “Take a close look at Lucia’s photo. She said that her initial intention was to photograph the horse. Which she did. But look closely and you see that this photo is an almost miraculous dissection of color.The photograph divides into three horizontal planes. Within each is a different color scheme. The top third, the sky and the wind farm, is black and white. The middle third, the horse and the dry land behind him, is in a monotoned sepia. And the bottom third introduces color in pastel hues. Looking at the planes in reverse order from bottom to top, you see that within each plane more color is removed: full color, a yellowish-brown tone, and finally black and white.”
Lucia says: “I shot this as a minimalist landscape. My main intention was to capture the horse as the focal point in the large frame. On closer look, I noticed the three distinctive section of color. The top is a black and white photo with shades of gray in the sky, accented with the dark wind turbines. The middle section is a monochrome of sepia. But if you look closely, you’ll see faint tinges of pink, yellow, and purple. In the bottom section those pastels pop out in strong splashes across the foreground. I’m often amazed at what I see after getting the shot I wanted. Do you see another way of looking at this photo.
