clarity where there wasn’t

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.

    Looks like a smiley face inside another smiley face. It is great because we all see through different eyes.

    Thanks! A smiley face inside another smiley face? I’m not seeing it… but you’re definitely right: we all see through different eyes…
