Image Description:
"Above and before and beyond the others."

That comment I think, along with the title, covers the concept enough without needing too much elaboration. You will find my message woven into the fabric of the image I hope, or you will find your own message, or see none at all.

I find this image interesting on a number of levels, not that I feel it's needed to explain them at length. To hint at the main three though; the technical aspects of it’s creation, the close integration of the concept to that technicality, and incidentally the new use of the over used material subject.

In the color version I find temperature is made more important while the toned and black versions are naturally focused on light most importantly, black with a somber crispness, and the tri-tone with a hint of morning's warmth and morning's chill.

Your critiques are always welcome, thanks for looking. :peace:

This is my favorite from your gallery. I guess I don't have to tell you what you already know: the symmetry, contrast, focus, the tones, the image as a whole, and the idea is great and in perfect harmony.

<>Yup it's red shadows, and green highlights. Just gotta max it's saturation to find out; easy.

Hmmm... It's actually a tri-tone coloration of a grayscale version of the color photo, with some slight mixing in rgb mode for the final effect. There are zones of overlap as the color curves share space, it's not as simple as shadows = this hue or that, coloration is a mix of the three 'inks' on the given tone value. The exact colors are r30g12b4, r236g126b175, & r101g150b121, fyi, all the colors in the image are a result of these three...

I always find I like shots that illustrate detailed depth of field better in black and white. It allows me to focus on the... well, focus, a lot more than when it's in color. The texture of things stands out a lot more for me in b&w. I like DoF shots where the central piece is out of focus rather than in a lot. I read your related scraps, and I think that you captured the idea very well. What I like about your art is that it always makes me think.

:hug: Thanks for the feedback Marion, I’m pleased you liked it.

Is it just my imagination or have you been submitting less art photography over these last several months? I miss the constant inspiring stream of shots you used to publish. What’s with all these cool traditional art and digital composites you been obsessed with making :), have you forgot your also a kickass photographer?

I actually have taken quite a lot of photographs recently, but nothing i would like to share. They are more like family and commemorative photographs and most of them dark and sad. I hope that I can come up with something that I feel like sharing soon :nod:

I hope so too. :heart: I know how you feel, some moments on film are not for meant sharing. It’s good to know you did not give up on the camera though, after all seeing your shots helped steer me into getting serious with photography, back in the day.

What an intriguing photo. The way the focus weaves in and out as well as the almost negative feel of the left side of the image are all great. Also seems as tho it is split down the middle with the main focus of the subject being the out of focus dividing plant in the middle - hope that makes sense ;)

Intriguing, well I am very happy then, sparking interest is an achievement in and of itself. I’m happy you enjoyed it [I assume you enjoy being intrigued, ha].

I actually gave some longwinded notes on the photographic issues when I first showed this in scrap 172 and 173, if your interested in specifics and color version. But yes you are on track in respect to the visual layering and that the focal element is not the focused element. The question in conceptual work is not what, but why, though.
