Freshly minted out of the camera from just this past week. I’m usually tempted to include the real, reference image, but I think I’ll pass for now and just let the imagination work.
Probably obvious what the base subject is; beyond that hard to figure. And of course one of the beauties of the ICM is the freedom to use any color values that seem fit. Well, actually all the colors are relative to the original scene, but luminosity, tone, hue, saturation… all that, there are no rules. Just a hope that the viewer finds it pleasing.
Lon, wonderful abstract image. The motion is quite interesting and I remember reading about your technique. But the image is more than just technique. My mind is trying to associate this to a macro image. Perhaps a close-up of woven fabric. Then there is also this feeling of wind. Sort of like the wind is stripping away the outer shell of the trees. Fantastic work all around!
It feels cool, wispy and free. . . at least to me, Lon. This is the type of image where, for me, it really doesn’t matter what it really is. The movement and energy are refreshing and the cool color is something I could stare into forever. Or at least until the temperatures cool down here! Very nicely seen, captured and processed.
Lon, there is something very soothing in your abstract. Blues have that effect, as we know. The motion you created reminds me of a fabric macro or rising smoke. Whatever it is, there is very pleasing symmetry and repetition.
Thank you all for your comments, much appreciated.
Vanessa, exactly! Brought to you by the letter “r”. This is one of my favorite letters… ie. ICM movements. Very quick and easy and of course timing is everything. Basically a vertical movement, but then about 1/2 way thru or near the end of the exposure, move the camera horizontally - either to the right or left depending on the results.
