Have you ever found surprises while looking through your pictures? Maybe there was something in the background you didn’t notice while taking the shot. Then, when reviewing and processing the image, you’ll notice something for the first time ever. “What the heck is that?”
Of course, unlike me, you may possess actual “awareness” and it’s like I’m talking alien right now.
Sometimes I’ll be cropping and trying to invent something known as “composition.” The little blinking square of dashed lines (aka marching ants) that I’ve used to highlight some part of my image may be just about right except for that “thing” that’s included. What is that thing, anyway? Don’t ask me. I’m just the photographer. How the heck would I know?
And don’t ask me to remember the “colors” either. When I adjust my photographs for color I eschew subtle changes intended to make the image look more like reality. Instead I ask, “What would LSD do?” Then I generally pump up the hue and saturation. Yeah, now we’re talking!
Usually I just crop the anomalies out while cursing, “If only I had noticed that thing I could have changed the angle a bit to exclude it. But then that would have been a better shot. And someone else would have been the photographer.”
Anyway, long story short, I was reviewing my shots and in one of them I think I see Elvis. You tell me. I have cropped, adjusted and blown up the suspect portion of the image and included a portion that’s approx. actual size for comparison.
