Behind the bars

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 28 January 2014 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Not often I do abstracts but I saw these bars in front of some steel sheets and I thought I'd play with the processing a little

Canon EOS 60D 1/640 second F/7.1 ISO 100 61 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Fun and a nice view. Photographer had in mind to do a puzzle, and it is very successful.

Brilliant treatment, Doug. I like this because the bars give the image a reality to offset the abstract.

Interesting dynamics and colors. My brain tries to make sense of it. I see figures from another planet and an exotic kind of rain coming down.

Abena from Illinois, United States

woah! Marvelous abstract! I think you should do more of these. I love the color and the shininess of it. Paired with the composition it makes for an excellent shot!

29 Jan 2014 4:15am

@Abena: Thanks Abena, your comment is encouraging. I always find find abstracts difficult possibly because I'm my own worse critic, I love some of those I see here on Aminus but because I'm not an artist I feel unsure of what I do so rarely put ones I work on up

Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

Lovely...I agree with Abbie :-)
