I’ve had some second thoughts about the photographs in the Gone to Pieces series. Specifically, I’ve been wondering whether the glass shards are too blue in the original Gone to Pieces 1 and 2. I can’t go back and check because the dumpster in which I photographed them has had many other pieces of construction/deconstruction debris added to it, and I can’t see the broken window anymore. For the first photograph in today’s post, Gone to Pieces 3, I toned down the blue with the neutral grey eye-dropper thingie in Lightroom. Then I went back and did the same thing to the photographs in Gone to Pieces 1 and 2. I added them below. It’s interesting to see that as the blue goes away, the orange becomes more intense. I’d be interested in knowing your thoughts about what I did, and whether you have a preference for one version over the other.
