Cody,

I think I can defend the red color!

The idea of using filters here, I believe is to create a different way of viewing the world. To my mind, at least, an artist has to satisfy their own need to export personal ideas to the real world. At a minimium the resulting object must satisfy its creator.

Such personal art then has to compete with attention to the rest of us and that doesn't happen a lot of the time. Still, this very individual process is important. It takes a long time for such work to jump the gap and become magnetic. There are a lot of ideas to process and the works have to feed back to the photographer and guide rethinking and reformulating concepts and modes of execution.

This individual process is like the early attempts to fly with attached wings. The potential cannot be denied and admired. At least that is my own view.

These pictures are very different than simply clicking thrvshutter of an automatic camera with all the settings pre decided by technicians in Japan!

Asher

I looked and certainly the exaggerated (often pleasantly) color details is the hook. I think there are many on the site that would be of more interest than the one posted above.
