abstract - creative interpretation

I've heard that one blurry picture is a mistake and three are a 'style' . These where shot before I realized that I still had my ND filter on.

Re: abstract - creative interpretation

Why did the ND filter cause the blurring???

I used to use one on a lens that would not stop down for the film I was using. Needed F 22 but the lens was F 16.

Interesting effect though.

I've done the same thing with pictures and after the period of grief (where I realized I'd lost the shots), then turned those same shots into art. It think it is great that someone finally posted these types of pictures for painting. They make terrific subjects. Way to go!

Steve - it slowed the shutter speed down to where a handheld shot would be blurred
Lyle - cool!
Janet - I had deleted them from Lightroom but then started thinking about them and so revived them and started playing

Re: abstract - creative interpretation

wasn't getting anywhere with PWS on this one so I loaded into FF and used an old setting called 'filter glass'

Re: abstract - creative interpretation

Great images to work on. I enjoy the versions that have been posted so far. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Just a bit of posterizing and pixelating.

Re: abstract - creative interpretation

Veronica-I really like the textures and text you used - that was very clever
Fran-that's a beautifully done 'graphic' interpretation
