Book Block :
The 23 photographs had to be scanned and cleaned up (dust,
scratches, stains), which took most of the time, and altered.
Here are a few examples, from the upper left: Although the
person in the background is Polly, Daniel's wife, we felt
that the image needed to be simplified, so, with apologies
to Polly, she was removed as painlessly as possible. Next,
the photograph was double exposed on the left and the sky
was faded. Second row: Ernie was sailing into a big storm,
but the photograph made it look like a sunny day—we
added a much more ominous looking storm. Resolution was resting
in a scenic and colorful anchorage, but the photograph made
it look gray and drab. As most of us know, trying to capture
a rainbow is often tricky, so we brought Photoshop to bear.
The next two shots are dark and yellow. Finally, we added
some water and type to the line drawing, and created the maps
and sextant for Ernie to navigate by.
