Okay, I’ll admit that compared to the last few Photos of the Week, this one has a few issues that should have been addressed in the post-processing of this shot. However, what I like about this HDR shot taken with a Canon 60D are the colors and tones of the shot.
Sure there are issues with the crooked lean and framing that make it far from perfect, but for some reason I’m drawn to this image. Perhaps its because I want to sit in one of those chairs and enjoy one of those bottles on that cool table, or perhaps it’s the cheesy but fun red walls. Whatever it is, I like it – despite its imperfections.
The photo of the week isn’t about perfection, its about having an interesting shot that makes me sort through the pile and stop and say “cool, I really like that.” In reality, that’s a lot of what commercial photography is about too – it’s not about sharpness, or technical perfection, but rather grabbing the eye of a consumer who is inundated with thousands of photos so I commend Aleem for accomplishing that with this photo – well done!
