Ww&F on 207 1/2/18
« on: January 03, 2018, 12:46:36 AM »
Just heard from many friends that the picture in Downeast Magazine was featured on tonights 207. Did any of our locals see it? I unfortunately missed it.

Listening to this guy describe the museum and Matthew's exquisite image...is painful. If they can't take a few minutes to read
about the evening's subject matter they should just stay home. Sad.

Yes, though I feel as though there may be a window of opportunity here though- to reach out and attempt to better educate/inform with the possibility of leading to a better relationship between the Museum and the magazine.

I am wondering what the gentleman meant when he said that Matthew's photo had a "little bit of touching up."  He says it in a way that almost implies that the rules of photography have been somewhow stretched.   I have news for him.  All photos taken under those conditions would require some editing to render the scene the way the human eye would see it.  In fact, even an I-Phone would do considerable, automated processing of the raw image that perhaps many users are not aware of.   I have a ton of photos from that day, and they all have the same sort of look that Matthew's image has.   In my view, one of the reasons why Matthew's image probably did stand out in the crowd of submissions they received is because he did edit the image as any pro would, and many of the others likely did not not.
