For what it is worth, HDR, let alone "overdone" one, would not be the first thing coming to my mind seeing the first photograph.
Yup. Looks just like a straightforward shot from my iPhone (with the HDR turned off).

BTW, the HDR Feature in iOS 7 is vey impressive. Looks like it works on the raw image data.

It seems to me that the project is quite specifically about the ways in which man makes pathways across the landscape, and how these pathways offer openings (or closings) to the journeying photographer. Haystacks would be off topic.
 


What about bridleways? Would horses have rights to being on topic, or only if mounted at the time?

I just lurve the concept of the opening and closing of metaphorical doors: makes me feel all artistic and terribly creative again. Positively rejuvenating!

Time to go for a stroll with camera then Rob. Maybe throw a dice at each juncture to see where to go.

Dice? I do the Euromilliones every week - no need to be rash! Shucks, I even bought an expensive part-ticket to the National Christmas Lottery!

In fact, I won the price of the EuroMil ticket on Tuesday, with about 17 cents on top! So, I either buy two coffees or a new ticket next week - guess I may as well reinvest in the business.

Dice? I don't gamble.

Er, the lottery is gambling. With even less chance of winning than usual. Particularly the Euromillions. Which is why it often goes for weeks without anyone winning. Despite two draws a week.

For haystacks, look at the work of James Smith:

With work like particular set of James Smith's or that in the original post, it looks completely indistinguishable from so many other photographer's work. There seems to be nothing of the photographer involved in the shot whatsoever. It's like a template of blankness.
And I should add, it's not that I dislike the style or anything.

Do deities in the pantheon have to answer to anything?

Sure, both photographers are shooting in a similar style (levelled large format cameras, flat lighting, subdued colour palette). But I don't think their work is interchangeable. They are pursuing their own themes, across series of pictures. This is how their personalities, or at least their thought processes, are revealed.

Ummm - I think I knew that when I wrote...

Re. EuroM: but eventually, somebody always does win, and the money rolls over until they do, and it's as easy or difficult to pěck seven numbers on one gamble as on any other. It's pure chance. The prize is bigger due to more contributed cash, and the win size, actual money won in any grouping, will depend on the number of others lucky within that same grouping too; if only one guy gets the lucky set of digits he wins the lot, if more than one get the same set of numbers they share the prize.

And it runs right down to two numbers, which I've had a few times; even made three now and then, but it's just peanuts at that level - cups of java.

Walter, beware the sounds of gathering thunder!

March and its Ides would be nothing compared to what a Photo-god could wreak! Just think Lord Digital.

Hmm, this talk of deities, pantheons and euromillions is going over my head.

Isaac, why did you post the link to Paul Gaffney's work in the first place?

(Perhaps your commentary, 'landscape photography!', needs to be unpacked?)

I thought others might be interested in them. I wondered about the obvious vehicle tracks and roadways, not paths. I was interested by the absence of ancient pathways and grand scenery.

As a contrast to "Landscape & Nature Photography".


(Perhaps your commentary, 'landscape photography!', needs to be unpacked?)

Probably a reference to whatever else "The Art of Photography" was preoccupied by at the time.

Sometimes the path is not so clear, as in attached image.  Wink

i found this series quite interessting and dynamic. not always those too colorful sunset pictures or blue sky dreams.
the picture is not interessting itself but in the context of the series, its great.
