Challenge #2 in the Landscapes series. Hosted by pcassel, casperskitty.
Challenge has finished
A photographic movement called pictorial started in the late 19th Century. The purpose was for photography to imitate etching or oil painting and thus achieve legitimacy through that path rather than being thought of as 'snap shots'. Here is a good article with illustrations from the WikiPedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pictorialism Alfred Stieglitz was probably the most famous of its practitioners although he was an American and the movement started in Europe. The movement ended or was greatly reduced in influence with the pure photography of Ansel Adams and his allies who insisted that photography was a fine art in and of itself. It didn't need to imitate anything. Here's your chance to enter a photograph in the pictorial style.

This was just some common flowers that I captured with the Nikkor 24-70 f2.8 fully open. No PP was done on this picture, it's just the way it came out of the camera. It always reminded me of an oil painting...
