Ragtag Daily Prompt: Shadowy Explorations

Debbie’s Trying Something New – ICM
I went to my archives for this photo challenge and found some interesting shots and some that are, well, best described as what were you thinking!
Of course the folder is called Arty Ones.
This was a lot of fun that I started doing a while ago and I keep doing ICM. I find the night time shots can be interesting as there isn’t any references to say this is a shot of….. I have told of the subject on each image for those who need details.
Here is a selection of my Intentional Camera Movement images.

Bren’s Photo for the Week: Abstract
Bren had instructions for Photoshop to alter your image. I use Corel PaintShop Pro 2020.
My image is a Hoya flower (Hoya carnosa)
1. I cropped to just the flower
2. Opened Reflection Effects
3. Chose Kaleidoscope
4. Chose number of petals – 20
5. Radial suction – 10
6. Edge mode – reflect
Hope you liked my abstract Hoya
I did ponder what I could post for abstract. I often take a photo and it isn’t quite right for the original subject but gets kept as it has a certain “quality” that I like. Some are deliberate like the water shots in this gallery others are well, I’ll let you be the judge.
These couple of water photos are just as I took them. No editing or enhancements at all. Just the reflection of the boat or wharf or whatever was beside me when I took the images.
This one has been manipulated. I like the colours and shapes with a bit of added pixelation.
The garden behind a fence. I thought of straightening the photo but the slight angle adds a bit don’t you think?
