One of the things I enjoy the most about post-production is that it allows you to create interpretative photographs rather than literal ones; i.e. it provides an opportunity to explore different ways of looking at or representing the same 'facts'. For example, I've already posted two shots of this boat: the first one was an attempt to capture the drama of the scene, while yesterday's was more literal. Today's and tomorrow's however, take a slightly different approach; i.e. they are both attempts to offer a slightly more surreal view of the same scene. This one does so using colour, while tomorrow's (my favourite of this short series) is more to do with contrast.
For me though, the important thing is that I see all of them as real images, that all express some fragment of the 'truth' about the 'reality' of this stranded ferry.
