Post by Danny »

Its where my heads at..........whats left of it. :D So now days I take images thinking of what can be done after. :D

First take on it


Second take


All the best macroholics.

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.

I go for the abstract most of the time. I like all three. Each one has a place in art :wink:

I think I'm going to keep coming back to this "first take" for a while.

It's an incredibly creative piece of work.

Starting from a flat image, Danny manages to recreate more 3D structure than the original rose probably had, then wraps the whole thing in this photo-realistic but still surreal combination of reflections and ripples and balls. He even threw in a bit of Escher-like illusion, with a drop from what looks like a foreground leaf causing ripples in what looks like the background surface. I don't know where anything is anymore!

But it's nice, no doubt about that.

Thanks, Danny!
