Later the pictures show everything that was around me with blinding clarity. Yet, somehow they did not quite reflect the emotional surge that went through me at the time. What could I do about that --- Maybe this called for some kind of experimentation with the images. A tweak that would give them a hint of "something else". What I came up with was a sandwich-technique in Photoshop, starting with two identical layers of the same image. The upper layer then was converted to black and white plus a graphic effect. This manipulated layer then received a certain degree of transparency so the unchanged color layer shines through. Both layers then are merged into one (quite a basic method that many have tried). At least in this technical way a "literal" rendition and a subjective expression coexist in the final image.
