KAPOW 2020 Week 18PhotographyOctober 24, 2020
KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

This week the KAPOW is a photo of a remarkable sunset looking down the Straits of Juan de Fuca from Whidbey Island. I was struck by the pixelation in the clouds that give the photo a watercolor painting feel. The crisp(er) elements retained in the brighter areas give the photo a dichotomy that adds some complexity.

I pushed a few levers and dials to enhance the contrast, but this is fairly close to what came out of the camera (iPhone 8).

I really liked the raw, rough feel of the photo….I did capture a few other scenes of the sunset that did not have that gritty, slightly non-photographic feel. Those are here:

Remember, there is no definition of art…..
