Julia Anna Gospodarou Hey Rohan! So glad to see you here! I'm a bit slow these days with responding, but I can't wait to see your next shots of the Dublin bridge. And do NOT delete shots! You never know ...I have deleted on impulse and I was sorry afterwards.
Thanks a lot for the visit! :)

The fourth image in my “Harp” bridge series presenting the Katehaki Pedestrian Bridge in Athens,by Santiago Calatrava. It will most probably be followed by another one that will wrap up the series (for now, at least).
It was yet another interesting image to process. I guess I'm enjoying at least as much the things I discover about myself while processing an image, as I'm enjoying the processing itself.
Like all the other photographs in this series, this image was not exactly easy to process. And not because of the technical difficulties of the processing itself. But because of the way I was dealing with my idea, with my vision about it. From the beginning I had a great sky. Long streaks of clouds converging to the pylon, good contrast in the sky, what more could I have wished for? I was sure that the processing would go like a breeze. Well, I had a big surprise, it turned out to be not that easy. When I actually approached the image and started processing it, I realized that there was constantly something not working in the sky, something that I couldn't put my finger on and tell what it was. I was struggling with it for a few days, while I couldn't get what I had in mind and had to do and redo and undo and redo again umpteen times (I think I've done at least 10 versions of the sky, all different, till I found what I was looking for) ...and while I realized that the problem wasn't the photo but me, the problem was that I was not fully letting my idea take control. I was letting too much the image that came out of the camera lead me. With the result that I was turning around in circles, and getting away from my vision instead of getting closer to it. Then, when I realized that I wasn't owing anything to that image the camera gave me, I was able to at last set my mind free and let my idea come out and there I was, finally managing to create what I was feeling inside me that I have to create.
But this process was quite energy c
