Grand Canyon Perch

One of the coolest things about being a photographer is seeing the look on people's faces when they see your images and it creates a reaction in them. It doesn't always have to be a positive reaction, almost any reaction will do. Sometimes they will look at an image and criticize it for its technical details, or flaws. Take this one for example, the horizon is crooked. Yes I could have fixed it in Photoshop or Lightroom, but I opted not to. The horizon on this particular image is crooked because of where I was standing, or rather I should say perched. To make it simple I was probably someplace most people would not have ventured to take a photo. Not saying that makes me a better photographer, or that this is even a good image. Part of why photographers shoot, is to bring moments to life. To help the viewer see and feel what the photographer saw, or perhaps the image the photographer is trying to convey. For this one, well its just a selfish image really. I didn't fix the horizon because I wanted to remember that little place I was perched to take this image. Until next time,
