General Touristy Images
Sometimes, we all shoot general touristy images. These are images that we really have no clue about, and have no seeming purpose, except to make us feel happy at the time. Why not? There was a time in my life when I sneered at these images. But, it’s possible that I was just a pompous, egotistical jackass, and maybe I still am one.
Therefore, in an act of mock humility, I decided to post some general touristy images for this post. Honestly, I have no real idea of where, in Rome, I shot these images. What I can say, is that I like the images, so decided to share them with you.
Before I continue, I should confess that I edited these images with Luminar AI and, I have added my affiliate link in here.
What Did I Aim For?
I have been aiming for a certain look, and I was not sure what look I was aiming for. Apart from this, I also had chosen far too many images to edit, so I wanted a tool that I could use to get what I was looking for as quickly as possible. This is why I chose Luminar AI.
At this point, I will also confess that I replaced the sky, and this is not something I do very often. In fact, something inside me cringes whenever I replace the skies but, I figured that it’s okay to do this once in a while.
When shooting, and presenting general touristy images, I think I may be forgiven!
The Last Image
Do you like these jazzy zoom effects? I like to experiment with them! Incidentally, in this image, I have replaced the sky, and added an airplane, just for good effect.
Replacing the sky, adding objects always presents me with an ethical dilemma. Is this photography, or is this digital art? Sure, I can always say that when you are shooting cityscapes or general touristy images, it is okay to bend the line just a bit. The question remains: where does the line lie?
