LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

A modified photograph
This is a piece cut from a  more comprehensive photo I took recently. It has been modified with photographic software to give the appearance of something else. The picture has also been turned (poorly) into a painting using the software. I suppose I could entitle it "A Structure in a Natural Setting." (Click on the picture to enlarge.)

That's an interesting photo Dave. I like it. I think it's good to experiment and I often modify photos to see what different results I can get. Sometimes it doesn't work but sometimes the results can be quite amazing. Keep experimenting :)

Cheers

I agree Pete. Sometimes a small part of a greater picture can be more interesting than the whole picture - Dave

I like this composition and the way the leaves look like a falling mist of stars... I'd be interested to see the picture without the painting effect. I recently had some great success modifying a picture of my children walking though the botanic gardens rainforest gully using an antique effect. It looked so good I had it made into a canvas print!

Keep up the nice pics!
