>>>Weekly "IS IT ART?" thread. Post your Artistic Photos. 9/28/13<<<

Let's try it again!

I'm looking forward to seeing your "Artistic" photos - no need for realism!

Please post your "Artistic" shots - any camera, any time, even old film shots.

Please reply to this first post and change the subject line when posting so we know it's a 'new' post, and change the subject line at the top to reflect YOUR picture, so replies will indicate what picture is being commented on.

Please let people post photos for a day or so before posting comments.

I'll start it off with this:

Cool shot Eric! It reminded me of this shot I took years ago.

Erik,

Superb classic juxtaposition of architectural detail on solid colored stucco walls.  Thanks for posting and thanks again for starting your thread.

My try in New Orleans in 2009 with Olympus 8080.

I visited an interesting vineyard recently.  The cellars were lighted only by candles and I took several available light shots (good test for the LX7 lens).  This was the best composition.

Most effective at "original size", evocative of times past.

Wonderful PP.

By altering the natural color, the eye is drawn into the composition.

Interesting "spectrum" - color wise and subject wise: group effort to solitary meditation

"This was the best composition."

Even not having seen the others, I'd agree.

Reminds me of the 'caves' at Beaune.
