Neodigital Art | Update Eleven
I take most of the photographs that I use on my blogs and I used a photo very similar to this one on Monday. I call it Neodigital Art and my artist friends recognise it as art. This photograph has been altered as usual and it is taking the photograph and manipulating it; that is the art.
I have taken photographs of this lake or pool many times before but I managed a different shot this time. I usually take the shot from the other end of the lake and every time the weather and light is different. I had good light this time and you can see the sky reflected on the water. It’s a sort of bluish-grey but often the water will look green with the reflection of the trees or worse, white.
The sun goes behind a cloud and I tried for a little more depth by using the tree in the foreground and we have a darker picture.
In this picture you can see the water looks green as the trees are reflected. I tried for depth by making the trees darker but the shot is across the lake rather than the length of the lake and so it has less depth.
I I have more depth in this picture because it’s at an angle across the lake and the trees are in a silhouette against the sky, for an unusual effect. The water looks green again but we can see the reflections of the trees on the water more clearly.
This is a different place and later in the afternoon. I still have a blue sky but I had to alter the picture to bring out the blue on the water and with few trees there is no green reflection on the water. This was a heath and on the left of the picture it’s been levelled by earth moving machinery. I have only just discovered this heath although it’s not too far away and already one lake has been filled in. I think there was another one beyond those trees that was bigger. Someone asked what the towers were in the background and they are of course power cables on pylons. You can see pylons on the picture I use as a header at the top of the page and we even photographed the distribution point for all the electricity for the area. I found a piece of volcanic rock while I walking around there which shows it pays to look up and down for shots. I even took a picture of the rock and someone thinks it shale.
I hope you enjoyed today’s artistic effort and you might like to read yesterday’s blog – New Domains which was about the new domains that will be on the internet soon with company specific extensions. Instead of www.bmw.com; we may see http://www.cars.bmw – who knows? I also wrote Average or Typical on Monday about the difference between the statistical average and the typical. You can also find many other blogs by simply visiting the home page or click a tag or even search. Please comment – someone has to be first!
