Then I started to enhance the overall feeling of the images. I began to play with color and contrast. I began to break some rules. It was fun and I was in the "zone". I felt tuned in to the mood of each photograph. I enhanced that mood in my digital darkroom.

"I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I shall live to see it. I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop."
I feel very happy with the photographs I have created today. That creation began outdoors with my camera on a tripod in one of the most beautiful places on earth. I finished the creative process today with my computer much as Ansel Adams did in his darkroom.

Photography is an art form. It is not only the faithful rendering of what we see in the world - we can leave that to the photo-journalists. It is the creative expression of what we have recorded with our cameras. As such it is unique to each photographer.
