Abstracts

A couple of colourful, abstract images created from a vase of tulips…. I wanted to have another shot at motion blur, and played with horizontal, vertical and sort of wavy movements of the camera, on a 1/4 second exposure, whilst sitting in the comfort of my armchair!  I did play about in post processing slightly, but most of the result is from camera. The non-linear results were best:

    These are lovely! I like that the results were mostly from the camera. Extremely inspiring!

  10. I would have had to look a while to see that they were flowers. The colours in the first photo are very good indeed. Well done Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.
