Abstraction in landscape photography

Quote from: hankbenson
"Personally I think all truly abstract photographers are really secretly painters, LOL. "

I move freely between abstract and representational photography, but I often look at the latter in terms of form, line and color as an abstract artist does. That tendency often surprises viewers and I think it opens up creative possibilities.

I agree.  Some of my work is very accurate, crisp, following all of the rules.  And some of it is more non-representational, whether from movement, focus or post-processing.  I try not to follow one style but go with what the scene and the image present.

You have some interesting images there, Mike. I particlarly like the lilies in the pond, as whatever you did accentuated the colours, and made the whole scene come alive. But the point I want to stess, inkeeping with your comments, is that the technique has to suit the subject and work in the sense that it conveys what you want. Well done.

Thanks, John.  For that waterlily shot I did basic lighting adjustments, then pushed contrast all the way up and clarity all the way down in Lightroom.  I don't know that it would work for any other image, but it seemed to work for that one.
