Picture this. (abstract)

15 Apr

Two of the photos that didn’t make the final cut for my last post were these rather dull shots of the sun reflecting on the surface of a lake.

What I’d been after was a nice clean reflection of the sun, along with some clouds, but the water was not still enough so I rejected it.

However, today I was mucking about with my various filters and effects and I had an idea.
Why not make some “art” out of my junk photos?

So here are the results of a considerable time spent on my trusty phone, digitally manipulating and generally “fiddling with” those two pictures, hopefully transformed into something a little more artistic.
A couple of the more starkly coloured ones have a whiff of Giger about them.

While the rest are of a rather more psychedelic nature, almost resembling cosmic deep space photography.

There, that’s my recycling done for the day.

Moral of the story: There’s beauty in everything if you look hard enough. (or something)

    Dale, I LOVED what you did with these photographs! I especially enjoyed the cosmic deep space ones. What faaaaabulous colors!

    Well done, buddy!

    *two thumbs up*

    Dale, what a great idea making “art” from your junk photos, well done! (On the second one after you fiddled around with digital manipulation, I swear I see ET at the bottom…his head, neck, eyes, and he’s looking up at a purple sun!) Love those psychedelic-looking ones too. The next to the last one reminds me of deep sea underwater photography (deep sea creatures like squid). The others really do resemble cosmic deep space photography, very cool!

      Thank you Lil, I know what you mean about the underwater feel. I think the bright green one in particular has a submarine atmosphere.
