abstract pixels

Another fun play session for Photo Art Friday.  I was inspired by Carola Bartz’s piece last week where she inverted the image so I opened up several photos and inverted them all.  One photo of flax leaves – now in shades of blue – attracted me because of the lines.  I found that the change in colours freed my eye to see the image as abstract rather than an object. Then I flipped it horizontally and then the 2 images vertically to create this kaleidoscope effect.

Thanks to Bonnie for encouraging us to experiment and play with photo art.  Check out what everyone else has been up to here.

I love abstracts, yet rarely attempt them myself. I need to change that! :). Beautiful job.

These are my favorite colors - blues and greens! The symmetry is so pleasing to the eye.

Helena - this is supercool. I love the effect that you achieved here, it is a stunning picture. I guess I need to try this flipping technique (so far I've only flipped textures to have them the way I wanted).
