No PhotoShop in my pictures, Ken – I make photographs with a camera and the digital equivalent of the basic stuff we did in the darkroom in the days of film; I don’t create ‘images‘ at the computer with graphics software. “Split grading plus dodge and burn”, me! 😉January 15, 2013 at 10:13 am #2761
Admirable Ian. Lot to learn from that. Its my opinion also that correct settings in the camera are paramount reducing the need for adjustment afterwards.January 15, 2013 at 9:11 pm #2762

Ken, I think your creation lives up to it’s title, total abstract! It an intriguing photo, if it is a photo. I struggle to work out the scale on all of Ian’s pictures, or is that the idea? The strategically placed red spot is truly dominate as a red circle must be the post powerful visual object. Is the red spot to strong? What do other members think?
I like the mood of the second image with it’s cool muted colours and texture. I think I would have like to have seen a bit more of the purple at the top left. The last shot as more depth than the others. I like the neutal background with it’s gentle vignetting. I just wonder if it needs something else to add a bit more interest. I think you could use it in a ‘what is it competition’!January 18, 2013 at 8:57 pm #2809
Its a true photo Peter,taken same day in my kitchen. Pair of scissors on a pill box then a bit of didgory do. kenJanuary 18, 2013 at 10:05 pm #2810
With reference to Peter”s comment” if my submission—-is a photo” in the interest of my integrity– here is the start of the original.January 18, 2013 at 10:25 pm #2812
How clever Ken. I would never have thought of that. Love the intensity of the colours. Great to see the original. As I said I am struggling this month.
I assume Ians last one is knife handles. Amazing how different ordinary objects look in close up. I do agree that the red spot in Ians first seems a little too intense. I would like it to have a little more definition in it or at least its edge. Love the pottery glaze close up. I assume that is what it is.January 19, 2013 at 4:14 pm #2813
Thought I had better attempt something.

Dee / Pete >>> thanks for suggestions re ‘Red Spot’; have another look – you’ll see I’ve altered it a bit as you indicated.
Dee >>> Lovely glass abstract. I particularly like the rich blue-blacks.January 20, 2013 at 2:21 pm #2819
Well done D for your entry, its good to see what people see and take on the abstract theme. Must do some more myself this month.January 20, 2013 at 10:11 pm #2820
I’ve read somewhere that curves are always more interesting than straight lines and I think this is evident in Miss D’s colourful image. I like the rich contrasting colours and the reversed S composition.
