Different time of day, but still interesting.

Interesting how the lampshade changes color at different times of day.
I wonder what kind of tricks it engages in when you aren't looking!  ;)

Thank you Eric. After I read your comments, I reexamined the first image and realized the light is not on. It is on in this second image, hence the warm cast from what must be an old tungsten bulb.

The lampshade/sunlight shining through the blinds is an intriguing concept. It presents a lot of opportunities for continuing with the theme.

Thanks Eric! Here is one from a walk with a group in downtown Toronto. When you get hard light, it's like getting a lemon, so you try to make lemonade, of course.

Tasty lemonade. Not too sweet, with a hint of tartness.

Is it abstract? I don't know.

Mike: Yes it is, by my fuzzy definition.

Rob: We have news reports of drivers of that sort every day around Boston.

Re: Show us some Abstracts! "The Shard"
« Reply #1614 on: November 16, 2016, 11:56:35 am »

The Shard is the tallest building in the UK (London) and in the European Union.

Note the window cleaners about 4/5ths the way up the building.

Well done there, Brian! I like the treatment, it suits the subject and the colours.

Mike: It may not be abstract, but is well seen. The shadows remind me of sun trying to get through trees and sit well together with the blue and orange wall.

Rob: As for you Rob, are you a ghost trying to transform into human form? Sure looks eerie.

JR, it's not a selfie! ;-)

I love the uncertain; I see myself therein, even if I'm not. Therein, I mean; uncertain is natural. Were I certain, there would no longer be a point in shooting. As some wag said: I like to photograph things in order to see how they'll look as photographs. I think said wag was Winogrand...

I get another good belly laugh every time I see another of your new concoctions, Rob.

Eric, this is an example of the problems of af.

The damned lens (2.8/180 Nikkor) wouldn't focus on the statue at all - insisted on locking on the tiles on the building behind me. Unlike my other af lens, the 1.8/50 G, which allows manual override at any time, this ones doesn't. If only digi cameras hadn't abandoned split-image finders, there would be no problem; a pet peeve of mine. Yes, I could have slipped the entire focussing department into Manual, but I hadn't the patience at the time. If I get problems I just want to move on. At my age, no bother is worth the bother, if you see what I mean. It's a most liberating attitude. I can't honestly claim it's new to me, but at least now it doesn't cost me clients or anything like that. I suspect, from deep and measured research, that it's a family trait. The ancestors knew a thing or two.

Rob

P.S.

The window with statue is one floor up, and I'm shooting from the street. It's the D200 with the lens wide open at 2.8 and a 1/640 sec, FWIW. David's head is much softer in the original file... poor guy.
