Thinking out-loud/on-line, and sharing one of my edits.
Generally speaking, I dislike making digital look like film. If that was my goal, I’d just shoot film.
However, in light of the comment(s) that followed the first version of this image, I’m curious to know how this version is received. In addition to not-so-subtly adding grain, I subtly played with the contrast (both local and global). The end result is less perfect, but possibly more aesthetically pleasing.
You tell me.
With apologies to Shakespeare.
“You will, Judas, my brother. God will give you the strength, as much as you lack, because it is necessary—it is necessary for me to be killed and for you to betray me. We two must save the world. Help me.”
Judas bowed his head. After a moment he asked, “If you had to betray your master, would you do it?”
Jesus reflected for a long time. Finally he said, “No, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to. That is why God pitied me and gave me the easier task: to be crucified.”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, The Last Temptation of Christ.
Every end is a beginning.
“I’m writing you, to catch you up on places I’ve been
And you held this letter
Probably got excited
But there’s nothing else inside it
Didn’t have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it
When I’m in the mood to lose my way with words.”
