Color-copia Triptych

“Color-copia”, a play on the word “cornucopia” - or Horn of plenty - or in this case, an abundance of color.

Let’s just say I had lots of fun with the ICM on this trip to Point Reyes. While I have more… at some point they become a little redundant, hence the triptych idea. All of these images were captured standing in the same spot, all within about 3 minutes. And since there are no rules really, I’ve taken some liberties with the colors. Well, except for the standard landscape image, I tried to keep it real for reference.

These next 2 images are for reference. The landscape ICM is rather ho-hum, but you get a feel for the landscape. Sort of.

Specific Feedback Requested

All feedback, comments suggestsions always welcome. I tried to keep the color, sat, luminosity similar for all 3 square images in the triptych and hope I arranged them in a pleasing order.

Thank You!

Technical Details

Very creative work here Lon! Great job on the triptych. Each has their own rhythm but the color unifies them nicely.

These work very well as a triptych. I agree that by themselves they get a bit repetitive, but combining the different motions is interesting. The colors are bright, but not unbelievable.

I like the triptych - they certainly work together well. I like the “straight” landscape shot too.

I love the triptych but I have to say the straight shot stands head and shoulders above the others. That straight shot is one to be really proud of. It’s a thing of beauty.

Amazing and lovely, all!! I do believe I was there and I never ever saw a composition as clean as the last “real” image! The abstract ICMs are lovely paintings but I LOVE what you found in this last one!

The colours are beautifully luminous and the different directions an paces of the motions work very well together. I see something watery in the first two from the left, whilst the last one has something of a furry, animal quality (my imagination!). Great job on keeping the color, saturation and luminosity uniform. This is really gorgeous and a great way to present such fine abstracts!
