One of the most challenging aspects of the Pressed Landscape project is deciding how ‘pressed’ the landscape needs to be in order to qualify for the final eBook. By ‘pressed’ I’m not thinking of just simple telephoto focal length compression. No! My motto tends to be: why do something simple when you can make it challenging? I’m aiming for images with a unique combination of focal length compression and compositional suggestion…I want the resulting final image to look like you reached out with a giant book and WHAM! grabbed that landscape out of thin air like you would a beautiful butterfly. (Except no landscapes will be hurt in the making of this book.)
So, will this image make the eBook? Is it pressed enough? What do you think? Even if it doesn’t, I like the little surprise in the photo…Happy Halloween!
