Abstract birches - but is it a photo?

Recommended Posts

Taken with M + 35 lux FLE. I dont know if others think this a bit outside what a photo "should be"?

A photograph, but as you say slightly abstract in presentation. The current LFI has an article showing the pictures of trees by Lord Charles March of Goodwood which are even more abstract. I think the technical process makes it a photograph, after that it is in the eye of the beholder.

I like this abstract look, makes for an interesting image. Am wondering how the image was created? is it 2-3 images merged together?

Thanks! It was created by simply moving the camera vertical @ 1/4s

This is a really beautiful image - I love it.

(I don't think there are any limitations as to what a photo should be…this is just an exploration of the medium…there's no reason why we should necessarily expect a camera to see what our eyes see…sorry, I'm rambling!)

cheers:

Man, I am really curious what the hell abstract bitches are... Oh, I got that wrong.

Nice image though! ^^

Nice, works very well with the snow on the ground and trees. I'm doing the same and now trying to find out if it may make a nice set if you have the same shot in different seasons. Waiting for spring now.

This is a creative image however I think it would benefit from being given good black and white conversion, the heavy greyish snow looks clunky......well, on my screen anyway.

Thanks a lot for your feedback, and to others as well

I always prefer color

. The snow should be slight bluish with tones of yellow. And the trees are slightly orange. But I cannot guarantee that my screen is properly calibrated, its been a while. These winter snow tones can be hellishly difficult to master, and only slight variations will differ.

Alf,

 

this is a wonderful image. By such good work in abstraction its impact on the view is often stronger than a "plain" photograph. The soft color range here is also adding to the abstraction.

Thanks....I thought later that perhaps I was a bit blunt, of course it is your image and I was putting my preconceptions onto you, as I always (to a great degree) prefer b&w...mea culpa and apologies.

      A winter walk in the lost village - former military training area - now centre of a national park. From this perspective it looks not too bad,  hidden by trees there is the old school building and the church from the original village, which was given up after WW2.  (SL 2 & VE 24-90mm)

      I have been in a rut lately so have posted very little. However I did shoot this a few days ago because I liked the combination of colours. I hope you think the effort was worthwhile!
