Abstractions isn’t a place I hang out. As more of a landscape photographer, I tend to see in broader realms, vistas. Sharpness corner to corner is the language I speak. Wide angle lenses are my compadres.
Occasionally, however, I get tempted.
This shot taken with a Fujifilm X10 compact camera — see the original below. You’ll note that I selectively added blur across a diagonal, trying to draw a contrast between the striking vertical lines. I also boosted the color and contrast. (If you’re thinking car wash… ding, ding, ding…)
The question for you? Did I make something out of nothing? Or did I merely reassemble pixels to no real advantage? It’s ok… I can take it.
Are you kidding? Obviously you have made something out of nothing indeed. Popping the colors out and cropping to focus on the best part of a non descript photo. Very interesting.
Something out of nothing? No more than making a painting out of tubes of paint. It’s art.
You should hang around abstractions more often!!! Fantastic!!
Works for me.
Hey, thanks for the comments everyone!
Looks like a smiley face inside another smiley face. It is great because we all see through different eyes.
It’;s a star-spangled splatter! Love it!
If I could do it all over again, I’d use ‘star-spangled splatter’ as the title!
Thanks! A smiley face inside another smiley face? I’m not seeing it… but you’re definitely right: we all see through different eyes…
