Way back in the early days of photography [19th century] there was the whole debate about the new vs the existing art forms, especially painting, and questions were asked about whether photography was an art, should look like the existing art, or should be confined to documenting rather than expressing. In this thread I would like to see examples of what you regard as your best painterly photos, ones that are more expressionist or impressionist — rather than highly accurate. Anything goes in terms of subject matter — landscape, still life, portraits... whatever. I would be interested in having all relevant tech info attached to captions — camera, lens, settings, time of day; just so we can appreciate how you deal with your subject. And add the name of the artist/painter/photographer, who you feel your image is alluding to. Thanks in anticipation. My starter image was taken about a week ago from a speeding car on my way back from a visit to the Tasman Peninsula and Dunalley to see how friends there were affected by the recent devastating bush fires. The mist is very impressionist; the whole image is somewhere between Constable and Fred McCubbin [he of the Heidelberg School here in Oz]. Constable meets Fred McCubbin... in the mists of Tasmania [close to Copping, where the bushfires began in the South]. Photo © Giles Hugo 2013. OM-D, Olympus 75mm f1.8; @ f4, 1/400s, ISO 200.
