    What is Truth in a Photograph?

     

    How true is an image? When is our view of a scene 'real?'

     

    This photographer's preference is to take images with few distracting artifacts such as utility poles and commercial signage. Most older towns have aerial utilities and a large numbers of signs. Newer communities and neighborhoods in the United States have underground utilities and they enforce strong sign ordinances.

     

    These photos of a recently added, but seasoned looking bridge, was built for bicycles and pedestrians to traverse the famous Orange Blossom Trail State Road 441 in the center of the City of Apopka. The project is called Rails to Trails since the paths were laid over abandoned railroad tracks.

    The photographer took a serious of pictures during mid-Saturday traffic. The first photo presented is a raw photograph taken on an iPhone 4 with only a signature added.


    The remainder of the pictures are various croppings of a few of the images. The first alteration done was to align the "gas lamp" street light to be in front of the cement phone pole and cropping to remove commercial buildings. Foreground vehicles below the level of the bridge are cropped out of some of the images.


    Also, one of the 'Fern City' post finials on the bridge was lined up in front of a fire and police department communciations tower topped by an osprey nest.


    The last photograph the photographer calls the "lie," in that clones of trees were made to cover some "urban clutter."


    Of the first nine images, which do you consider the most appealing version of the "truth?"
