Private

I decided to include this image today because this has been one of those pictures which required considerable PP work to get it as I wanted it. The minute I saw this on a farm in Iceland I knew what I wanted to do. For me the windows looked like eyes and the sign indicated how much of our thoughts and feelings we often keep as private and out of bounds to others. A bit heavy maybe but a good starting point to create an image with impact, my success or otherwise will be judged by others.
There was a considerable amount of dodging and burning to create the right amount of contrast whilst keeping detail in the shadows and then poster edges were added to emphasise the texture of the wood grain.
