Track: art in the artifacts of change.

Of course this is not really a picture of a footprint. The footprint only provides a point of focus for what is essentially a study in texture and shape…and the way the low sun of early evening interacts. Rock, sand, snail shells, and broken crab. A feast of color, light, and texture.

For this kind of shot, you have to wake up your eye…your inner eye…the part of you that sees image possibilities in the chance arrangements (if you believe in chance) of the world around you. The Art in the artifacts of change. (Maybe I should copyright that phrase before someone steals it 🙂

Sony DSC H50 at about 285mm equivalent to frame the shot. F4.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

In Lightroom, simple added Clarity and Vibrance, a touch of Recovery for the crab shell, a touch of blackpoint for overall depth, and the Landscape sharpen preset.
