Usually I don’t post more than one image of the same subject captured on the same date from the same location. The reason is that when I take multiple captures on a given shoot, it’s because I have one final product in mind, and the multiple captures simply are incremental tweaking in order to get the best possible capture for the image I want to make. While any of the several captures might make a good final image, doing more than one usually results in the multiple images being cumulative of one another and not really adding anything to the portrayal of the subject. The better choice almost always is simply to pick one capture – the best capture – and go with it.
The image in this post is an exception. If you look back on November 15, 2015, you’ll see that I’ve already posted an image of Mount Sneffels from the same day and location as this one. However, I think this one really does pose its own different and distinct interpretation, so I’ve gone ahead and posted it here today. Rules, after all, are made to be broken, something I’ve been doing a lot of lately.
