There's no clue in the title for me, I like the right hand side of the pic more.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Nig. The title was a bit obtuse on my part: the blob on the left is a TV, which is something that promises so much yet delivers nothing. I'm not a TV fan & the more I see of it, the less I like it...hence the title!
me too with the title Dave but its a fabulous image fella.
Dave Carrington: See the above, Tim. Just me going off on one, I guess! smile
This is an excellent image Dave.
Dave Carrington: Ta, Bernie!
I'm going to say..its the colours that do it for me. Excellent.
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it, Ron!
Not keen on the blob on the left but the rest of it is great
Dave Carrington: Well, Bill, the blob on the left is the reason for the title: see my reply to Nig for the explanation...
I am tempted to say this is a Photoshop too far but there is something quite haunting about it.
Dave Carrington: Wotcha, Matey! This is again my desire for a painterly feel: it's PP'd out of all reason, it barely resembles a photo, but it does, I hope, demonstrate my intention?
Well, I was stumped by the title too, but it's a beautiful image. Whether it's still a photo is a moot point, but I love it as an abstract.
Dave Carrington: If you like it, Ian, that's all that matters: I like it, I made it...smilesmile
Nice result here - pleasantly decorative. Really nice colors.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Gavin!
