Pictures can only show what is happening. Being void of sound and smell it leaves the viewer to their own imagination to fill in the rest.
How about you? When you look at a photo do you stop there or do you imagine more?
When you look at the above photo do you imagine the sound of thunder in the distance? Can you feel the breeze from the storm and smell the coming rain in the air? Can you hear the wind in the trees?
I am one who try’s to add another element to the photo that the photographer can’t. It adds a new dimension and can even add to the excitement of the photo.
It would be interesting to hear what others think.
