>>>>Weekly "Is it ART?"<<<< Thread, March 1, 2014

Looks like we're still on a roll with "Artistic" photos - no need for realism! Things that have caught your eye, or things you have created.

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

Please reply to this first 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 so the photos get a good display for all to see.

OK, a sequal from me: last week I posted a pic of the back of a Kodachrome slide and someone mentioned that the reflected bas relief had pictorial possibilities, so I worked it into a "Fake Calotype", with apologies to Henry Fox Talbot, one of photograpy's pioneers.

A Florida paintbrush

Florida Tasselflower - Emilia fosbergii - Florida paintbrush.

Not a real paintbrush but resembles one in a way. A wildflower here in southern Florida.

A recent candidate (today!)

Taken at Cromford canal Derbyshire - I had to study the image closely to be sure it was a reflection.

Be careful how you interpret the world: It is like that.

Thanks John. Those were taken long ago. I swapped that Olympus for my first Panny, A FZ5. The last shot was taken later when I had a Panny camera.

Nice shot Estero. Great detail on that one as well as nice bokeh.

Re: I'm not sure....

Looks like you did those with a paintbrush Dave. They look just like watercolors. Nice.....
