Abstract

Playing around with photo software.

Too much? Over processing? What do you think?

Not being a photographer, I am out of my league, but looking at it, I think I want to see one sharp edge. For me, personally, it would be on the dark side of the image..left as viewed...maybe the curve of the disc there, and a couple of the radiating blades...the rest a blur...but I haven't a clue how one does that, or if it would be an improvement. But sometimes, I stare at my ceiling fan in a blur, and if I try to follow it with my eyes, one blade comes into focus.

I am a little dizzy if I am being honest...it is cool but my eyes were going all over trying to focus.

Mytho: Yeah that makes sense. It certainly is overkill. I was playing around with lensbaby and picasso. Thanks for your honest opinion:)

MM: Ha ha. Well said. It is a tad too much. Thanks for being honest:)

Blogitse:Makes sense. Thanks for the honest opinion:)

I would have focused on one part of the face in the center of the object...
but as Blogitse says..it is what you want it to be :)

I too think, that maybe one part, it can be a thin part in focus would help. And maybe not straight on, the sunflower more tilted? And the colours popping a bit more.
Just my idea when I see it :)

It hurts my eyes too when I can't get something in focus, but as others have said, what's important is if you like it. I like the colours in the background mingling with the sun image.

BG: Actually this was just a bad photo and I tried to play with it and made it worse. Thanks for your honest feedback. Sometimes I look at my photos and realize that it doesn't quiet work, but can't really pin point what is wrong. So this is very helpful!

Nicole: Thanks for your suggestions. I will try it out. This was a bad lensbaby photo and I butchered it even more:)

Janice: You were my inspiration for this! Sorry! I was playing around with picassa like you did on your blog. Did not work for me. LOL. Oh well. Lesson learned:)

Heavens! Thank you. (Blush). Re the bad photos, I have SO many bad photos you wouldn't believe, but that's the good thing about digital photography - take as many as you like of the same thing and then choose the ones you like best when you're at your computer and take them as they are or work with them. Obviously didn't see the original photo, but would it work if you kept it in its original focus and then cropped to add interest?

Janice: I took this photo using lensbaby. I am still learning it so there was no focus:) LOL. I should have picked something better. You know if you take dirt and add water to it, it becomes mud:) I'll keep trying. Thanks for all the advice. It really helps pin point what's wrong.

Didn't I add more to that comment? Or did I just dream I did :/
