    Abstracts

    I debated whether to place this image in the landscape topic, but realized it would possibly clash with the prevailing images there. And since doing a search and not finding a topic where abstracts were covered, I thought starting a new topic would be the best way to go.

    And I am also prompted by receiving a mailing yesterday from Howard Bond announcing his latest portfolio, Enigma, which consists of ten of his abstract photographs. Surely, there are others here who at least dabble occassionally in doing abstracts, either with 'straight' shots, or in heavy manipulation of an original?

    I'll start it off with this landscape where I heavily 'abused' the saturation, contrast and brightness features in my scanning software to give it an abstract look.

    The original is from a 4X5 Ektachrome 100 plus transparecy, moderatly cropped. And I am open to critique on this.

    But I don't see any problem with another abstract thread.

    Re: Abstracts

    I used this in the diptych thread, but as it is the most abstract I have done, I'd thought I would show it off here, too. Link below:

    It is about 80 feet from the top to the bottom, to give you some scale.

    Thanks for bringing that up, mrladewig. How in the heck did I miss that great thread in my search?

    Moderators,

    Please feel free to bring the abstract thread that is shown in mrladewig's link to this part of the forum, so that it may become the main thread here. And if it can be worked out, combining the one I started into that one would be fine by me.

    Here is a couple of pictures taken with a 4.5" Wolly f3 petzval which I recently sold to a fellow forum member. I used TXP320 in my Pacemaker and its focal plane shutter.

    Hitching Post
    These latter day hitching posts (aka bike racks) seem to be popping up everywhere.
    I was thinking "architectural detail" when I shot this. After looking at the negative I started thinking "abstract".

    Made in a restaurant in Pyrgos, May 2009. Howard Bond happened to be with us on this trip.
