Abstract Shot

Post by Mike B in OKlahoma »


I took this shot without regard to "sea level", but shot down on the subject and oriented the camera to get the good stuff in and leave the bad stuff out as much as possible. So orientation is arbitrary. I chose this head-down arrangement to minimize the recognition of the subject and encourage the viewer to focus on the textures and patterns.

(I'm putting the actual subject quite aways down to minimize people recognizing it, though those who viewed my "diamond shot" of the same snake yesterday probably will know what he is anyway!

very confusing pattern Mike. I could see where you would not know where the deadly strike was going to come from. Very abstract, almost fractural.

Quite confusing at first there Mike, finding where the head was, took me a second or two. Very contrasty and I like all the patterens, quite a sharp image. Well done! :smt023
