Beautiful!  Well seen.  Especially #3.
I love the idea that cameras make us see better.

Very nice, Armand. I know several spots where i have similar multiplicity, but haven't found an interesting subject yet. The tree as a natural object in an unnatural setting (especially with the addition of the lights) works well.

Thank you, that entire building is designed like this and there is a central area where it gets interesting if there is a gathering of people.

Overexposed an experiment but before I send it to the trash I came up with this.

Thanks Peter and Eric. I never thought I would like the images from my phone, but I do. In fact I am going to buy a decent holder because that is one area where cell phones are lacking. Tapping your phone and still getting reasonably sharp images is dicey at best. Peter, I think your observation is well stated. Seeing the world through such a large and clear "finder" can not be overstated. For me it is a kind of awakening, like the first time I looked through the viewfinder of medium format camera.

From my brother's new apartment. Taken with my cell phone. All he had to say, was, 'Oh, I see'. He is very interested because he has now taken up photography as well. One of the things I really like about this image, is the secondary subtle lighting on the radiator.

I like this, Armand.

Thank you! It was supposed to look like this: https://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=127319.msg1076747#msg1076747

It's a long exposure at 30s during which I used a flashlight to lit it from the sides, at the ground level.

It's as if the wind blows on a moody autumn day.

I really took to these Temples. The bw shapes created by the sun and shadows made for endless possibilities.

I quite enjoy the idea of catching three different dimensions at once, and thus making a fourth. Oh well, it keeps the computer warmed up and the belief that one is getting one's money's worth in a kinda roundabout way.

From the temple that keeps on giving. I decided to consolidate these and post in one post so people can see how interesting this temple is.

John, I think that temple exists only in your fertile imagination!
Fascinating.

Thank you Eric. I think I will show one last colour version of the Temple. Harsh sunlight sometimes makes for interesting bold and dense shapes and colors.

Nice find - but if it was mine I'd process it hard and make it brutal to focus on the shapes, the hell with the colours :)

I see your flaky paint and raise with my weird bark.



Which isn't processed quite right.

Thanks Mike. Are you referring to the red paint chips? If so, sometimes I will exaggerate to bring the effect or look. I should have used LR for PP as it has black and white point settings, whereas Elements is very basic.
