But is it Art??

An Impressionist View

This image was the result of a total accident. I had succeeded in inadvertently knocking one of the buttons or dials on the camera- no idea what I did, but I had moved from autofocus to manual focus without being aware…until I looked through the viewfinder and got a very out of focus view. I took the image anyway, and then set about righting the wrong….something that happens a little too often for my liking these days.

Anyway, most accidents produce total garbage, but I quite like this one!


  1. It makes my eyes feel strange to look at it, but definitely has an ‘Impressionist’ look, I agree.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Pleases me this image, though arose in the unintentional way.

  3. I love it! Enough to recognise the artist and his easel, and it takes away the rain and grey of the day

  4. But I can’t give you a like as my laptop won’t do likes today! I upgraded software yesterday and have a few hiccups today 😦

  5. That is so much better than some so called art they had on BBC Breakfast this morning 🙂

  6. I really like this; leaves just enough to the imagination.

  7. Hi. love the image. Sometimes, what one cannot see tells more than one can. It increases the suspense and tension within a narrative. The viewer is made to question. Many artists and photographers have used this blurring technique to great effect. How about trying it again on different subjects. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the camera. Sometimes you win some. Sometimes you lose some. However it is all a learning curve. Let me know how you get on. Happy Photography. have a great day. Goff

  8. I love it, Sue. Some people pay lots of money for filters to capture images just like that, and you did it naturally. 🙂 The painterly effect is perfect. I think you might not like the “real” photo if you saw it next to this version.

  9. Great image – it looks very impressionistic

    It’s clear in what it is, Sue, even without the crisp details. I like it. It’s good to experiment! 🙂

  11. Tom

    Many an experiment starts that way! 😁

  12. I definitely like this – just enough is there to give it structure, but ethereal…

  13. I love it Sue! Just enough to be recognisable.

  14. In the fuzzy eye of the beholder 😎
