Ice and Bubbles and Crystals
Recently I have been to a showing at a friend’s of 12 photos each by 12 people who went on the trip to Abraham lake last month. It was great to see the variety of photos that we took . I had taken mine and taken some of the colour out of them so went back to my computer and , as I say,” jazzed them up”. The thinking behind this is to enhance the contrast between reflected light and darker areas to show off these features because this is why I was attracted to the subject to begin with. Some of it is just playing around. I will show the “before” and “after”, tell me what you think. i changed the exposure and sometimes the temperature.
I like that natural ones a bit more than the those of the color shift. The second set is really intriguing, it looks like an aerial of a lake with trees.

Thank you, I appreciate your feedback as I once would only have made things “real” as possible. It is good to hear what others like ,too.

I don’t miss living in a cold region, but I envy people who do for the opportunity they have to play photographically with snow and ice. Happy abstractions to you.

I love this, I really love this – and I looked at your Snow Drifts.
Just excellent sharing to the world, because truly, I never see anything like this.

Thank you for visiting. I like to share how I see and to practice “seeing.” Then I share the experience with others.It is an awakening.

I love the first two pairs. I think I like the afters best. They seem crisper, more sure of themselves. The middle one is especially intriguing because it looks a bit like an abstract of a landscape.
