An Especially Colorful Morning at The Los Padres Inn

An Especially Colorful Morning at The Los Padres Inn

San Luis Obispo, California

Is this photograph representative of the Los Padres Motel? Yes and no. This is a photograph of the motel - and its reflection - when I was there one morning. The colors, though, are super-saturated. Does this matter?

For me, the answer is obviously no. I was not so much interested in using a photograph to show what the motel looked like, as I was in using the motel to show what a photograph can look like.

In other words, I'm more interested in the final product the photograph than I am in the original ingredients of the photograph. I set my camera on a vivid setting, and I added even more color saturation to the photo with an app I have on my iPad, where the photo is stored.

Good job Dave. Gets the creative juices flowing.

The result is certainly saturated which I like, and I also think that the wideangle adds to the scene. Well done.
