The Problem With Pictures

Filed under: Day to Day Life, Research — aliceaudrey @ 8:39 pm

I’m not a photographer to begin with.  Add to that a handicap from the time delay involved in using a digital camera and a tendency for my snorkel to fill with salt water and you can pretty well bet the best pictures got away from me.  Worse, I felt compelled to refrain from taking pictures of people I didn’t know, which means I can’t show you the streets of Belize City as they really ought to be seen – full of people.  I took a bunch without people, but I’m not sure what happened to them, as I can’t seem to find them now.

Anyway I thought I’d give you an example of what I’m up against here.  This is the beautiful moonlit night as seen in my camera display.

Night 1
And here is what I get when I use Photoshop to lighten and heighten contrast.

night 2
  Even with the help of Photoshop all I can say is you should have seen how beautiful it was at that moment.
