A collection of tones and shapes

Debbies Quotation-inspired image

“Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships!”      Ansel Adams

“Tonal relationships are important for us to understand because they give us the power and choice to influence the viewer’s eye, highlighting what we as the photographer want to showcase in an image. At a basic level, a photograph is nothing more than a collection of tones and shapes. If we can look at an image and understand what the relationships between the elements are, then we can sculpt the image with more artistic intent. Understanding these relationships, I think, makes us more focused on what we are doing at the time of capture, what we may want to do later on with the image, and knowing what we want to say as artists.” Robert Salisbury

Do you think I have it right?

A quarrel

Debbie from Travel With Intents quotation inspired image

At first I was unsure of what I could find to satisfy Debbies quote of  of William Ralph Inge
“It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.”  William Ralph Inge, “Patriotism”, in Outspoken Essays (1919)

I am sure I had a image of Sheep somewhere but alas I have no idea where they are. They would have not been as good as Debbies Sheep anyway!! Also a Wolf image would be good, but no Wolves in the wild to be found in Australia.

So I decided to dig a bit further as the quote inspired me to look at more from William Ralph Inge This is what I found which made it much easier for me to supply an image to match more of the quote. I know Debbie this is a bit of a cheat. Also I have added more than one image.

“It takes in reality only one to make a quarrel. It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.” William Ralph Inge — 1919  Outspoken Essays (first series),’Patriotism’.
