    Feather

    This feather just fell from the sky into my garden - just had to try a shot or two.

    Regards

    I am being greedy but here is another shot of the same feather - different angle and probably a bit more abstract.

    regards

    Bald Eagle - Thanks for the kind words. I agree that this thread is inspiring the generation of some great shots. I am not by nature an "abstract" type of person and find it a real mental challange. I have been trying to follow the maxim that "there is a great photo in every object - so look harder". This thread certainly proves the point.

    regards

    Thanks for the encouragement BE. I have a question for everyone. Say you start with a picture that comes out of the camera like this:

    It is reasonably abstract, but not particularly inspiring.

    To what extremes can one legitimately go to create an abstract?

    For example, the above can easily be changed into:

    This is done with Curves, which is a tool that is used all the time in post processing. Of course it is a bit extreme curves. BTW I apologize for the size, but this didn't really work with less than 1000 pixels.

    And how about this:

    Again my apologies for the file size, but I had to avoid jpeg artifacts here, so the jpeg compression is zero. This is of course done with a tricky filter, obviously called "stained glass" in this case, starting with the picture above it.

    So, what do you think, do these count as "abstracts"?

    As far as our imaginations can take us...




    I am really amazed. I go away for a day and come back and this thread has exploded with creativity! Kudos to all! We could call ourselves the Artistic Photo Enthusiasts (ha, ha, ha)!

    The original...a shot that others would have deleted! To me, it's merely paint..."The camera as paintbrush, the world as paint." JTL, 2005

    Here is out of focus picture. Does somebody know what I was trying to photograph? I just like to make sure that my oblect is still recognizable.
    Thanks.
