Dancing Pond Grass
« on: July 17, 2017, 07:07:37 PM »

Eric has his ballet roots so in the same vein - here is some dancing pond grass that has been rather tightly choreographed.

Fascinating combination: ripples and grass! And specular highlights.

B&W perhaps?

I love them!
Slightly different choreographer from the one who designed my roots.  ;)

Nice, the strong colour contrast does tricks on my depth perception and makes the grass appear to be floating above the water... so I wouldn't go B&W. Think of it as an extreme duo-tone :)

There is a strong feeling of Japanese woodcut, especially in the 1st and 3rd.

Thanks everyone for having a look.  These shots just happened to present themselves when we were out walking so sometimes you just get lucky.
I tried B&W but didn't feel that it added much, perhaps because of he limited range of tonalities. I'll revisit that again in a while.

Chuck, that's not called luck. It's called looking. And yes, you're lucky if you see something like that while you're looking, but it doesn't mean a thing if you're not looking. It was a good catch. Keep looking.

No, no, not B&W, this special color is needed, I mean at least when it shouldn't be a "pure abstract". This green is mesmerizing.

Ben Hogan, I think.

Impressive work. I think #1 and #3 are stronger than #2.  Really neat pictures...
