There is a distinct difference between random and chaotic, and it never ceases to amaze me how nature always seems to favour the former. Or is she simply hiding her chaotic character behind her dazzling beauty? You know, pretty much like all women do...

Too bad you mentioned the leopard skin. It took me a while to scratch that off of my retina, but now I really start to like this image. It has a certain tension between the rectangular and the natural, in a good way, mind you.

In my locale the buttercups are currently blooming. I wonder if a similar approach would make for a fantastic shot. As usual it comes down to skillzzzz. Lacking those, I might as well start looking for a new camera, you know, as the obvious answer to becoming better at photography.

I think that's an excellent observation Oscar. But all systems and organisms need some structure to function. Our eyes and brains see patterns and hopefully with some practice the eye and hand can capture some of it. Thanks for the comments on my images, such as seeing the tension between the natural and what the movement created in the 'leopard' image.' Helps me to see and understand better also.

No repairs necessary. You just have to remember to take the Monet filter off.

Once Monet is in your soul, he never leaves. Just rests.

Straight, but evocatively blurry?

Yes, I gave into temptation again today. But all is not lost. Here is a second image with bokeh.

Ouch!
This thread belongs to John!
Sorry, my mistake. Didn't mean to intrude.
I'm putting my leaves somewhere else...

It was very sunny, so I looked up for inspiration.

I missed today, so here are a few from the last two days. So verdant and spring-like.

From St Johns. The new growth of delicate budding ferns. Oh the greens of new growth are so vivid, almost surreal.

What an amazing collection!

I have so enjoyed looking through your very creative, whimsical and observant photographs. While purposeful camera movement photography is out there, I find the variety of your images more imaginative than many. Having some ‘still’ images mixed in really sets off both styles well. Definitely worthy of a book as well as printed and framed for viewing.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Terry. Very much appreciated. Some day I will make a book with some of my ICM images. They don't always work out, but when they do, they can be quite striking.
