ADHD makes details difficult, luckily meds make a huge difference ! Never the less, the devil is in the details 🙂 Several things have been reminding me of this lately; some post processing work I have been doing, and planning the Columbia gorge trip with others.
The featured image of the Canadian Rockies was originally to dark and the clouds were blown out. I had it on my home page after fixing the too dark, but the clouds still bothered me because they were blown out -one of those details I had not taken care of….. This in turn had me looking at other photos from that trip (honeymoon) and finding more. One of the other details that I found was halo’ing on the sky-mountain edges. This in turn required me to revisit several other photos to deal with the halos. In the photo below, notice the halo in the sky along the mountain top.
At least for me, it takes time and practice to notice the details, (and usually a goof or two as well). The fall colors to the Columbia gorge looks like it is a go, and I was talking with some of the others about it. In the course of the conversation, lots of details started popping up that need to be thought about.
- rain cover for the camera
- wool socks because our feet are likely to get wet, and wet cotton is awful
- towel for rain, mist (from sky or water fall)
- alarm clock to make it to sunrise on time
- battery charger
- which rental car agency so that we can have 2 drivers per car
- AAA maps
- which flights
- where to stay for Silver Falls State park
And the lists go on. But if there is a list, I am more likely to get taken care of than thinking of it, and then forgetting.
The grizzly below does not have a catch light in its eyes. Compare the difference in feel between the image without the catch light and the one with the catch light. The catch light is a small detail, but has a big impact.
