…an image from two weeks ago–one which seemed to be yanking at my sleeve for a more muscular treatment. I obliged, by leaning into both the toning and the detail structure, and also by applying a bit of a vignette as well. Shaping photographs in this fashion can feel a bit like throwing a pot.
The photograph is from a remote settlement in the Steptoe Valley of eastern Nevada. When I initially published this image earlier today, I’d confused it with a similar scene I’d photographed in Widtsoe, UT…such is the abundance of former mining communities in these two states.
High Noon was photographed with a 14mm Panasonic lens attached to the wide converter on a G 3.
