19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Guiding the Way

The sun seems to cast a guiding light on a buoy floating in calm waters just off the coast of Hyannis MA. First taking the image in color, the photo presented a calming mix of blue water and sky with bright sunshine. Converting the image to black and white changed the entire feeling of the photograph. It now presented a more sinister feel with it's light and dark imagery. The image void of color created a totally different reality.
