iPhoneography App Stacking in Italy Part 4: Evaluate & Select

Selecting an image from among the about 15 options I shared with you in Experiment and Play and in More Experiments is difficult but I do have a few favorites.  I’ll also include reader favorites in this post.

I’m still rather fond of the original composition because the keystoning accentuates the drama and provides the context of the space.  This version is more 3 dimensional and the others appear more flat, like a painting:

Sebastian Salgado is best known for his up-close and personal documentation of mine workers.  He covered the plight of the disadvantaged and the semiotics of his signature style seem well suited.

The AE TTV Saturated version below from Lo-Mob does a great job of concentrating focus on the central figure and making this feel like it is part of a movie, spread over time, like a story. I really like this one.

This last one does the best job of faithfully yet dramatically rendering the fresco as a whole with a parade of activity up and down and all around.
