Continuing my walk , the contrast I was looking at yesterday (previous blog post), also revealed lines. Lines can be curved, straight, diagonal, or oblique, and each evokes a different emotional response. Light also plays a role in our response; direct light creates a different feeling than diffuse light. You can check this out by being aware of your response to the following two images.
direct light & high contrast
Diffuse light & less contrast creates a different mood
If I had added contrast to the second image during the editing process, I would have ruined the mood of the image. This is something to be aware of when editing.
Being aware of my responses to light and line is one of the reasons why I get so excited when photographing in the field.
