Discussion in 'Nature' started by svenkarma, Apr 20, 2016.
I couldn't find a thread that was for photos that were of nature but not so naturalistic.
Thanks, hopefully peoples can find contributions! A home for things that e.g. don't quite fall into the Minimalist, Decay or Blurry Photos threads
I think this fits.
I like the idea of this thread, so here goes. Not sure if this is abstract enough. Here are two versions. Which works better?
I have a number of shots that would fit the category. Here are a few in the "grasses" category, a good subject for abstracts
Late October Miscanthus
Muhly Grass macro
A few more - this is the same plant seen in three different ways
Golden Hour Sparkles
Abstract - switchgrass in the morning light
Autumn shadows and light on switchgrass
Tree at the Creek
Burst of Spring Color
trumpet lily in bud
Abstract with stipa
Dogwood, late October

I have a slight preference for the colour version. My (colourblind!) rules of thumb are (1) Does the colour add some spatialization that the B&W lacks? (2) Is there some intrusive piece of colour, e.g. a bit of yellow plastic flotsam on a pebbly beach, that distracts from the whole, ahem, composition?
Thanks. I go back and forth, but today I think I share your preference.
Don't know if this is appropriate, or not....because of the processing. I'll be happy to delete it, if not.
