photoblog image Magic Carpet

Magic Carpet

This is not all it seems: it's not a carpet & no, they aren't poppies. I'll tell all unless someone can guess what it is...

Update & explanation: this is a shot of some blistered paint following a fire. I cropped it down to around 20% of the original & boosted the colours & added a few blur layers which has created a false sense of DOF, which considering it was a flat shot, is bizarre!?

Another fine abstract. You're on a role with these. I like this one, but perhaps it would be stronger if either it was more out of focus or had some part of it -- maybe just a small part -- in focus.

Looks like metal to me. Corrugated metal. But I really don't know. Will be interested to find out.
Dave Carrington: You're right, Dustin: a focal point would definetly give this shot an edge.
Measles or tulips

Dave Carrington: I took this in low light hence speed, I have PP'd this to some degree: see my update.

It looks like a "Monet"! Superb!
Dave Carrington: Merci, Fabrice! smile
I thought you have been visiting the inner part of volcano using photoshop smile
Dave Carrington: The 'Magma' layer? smile
Beautiful image - very impressionistic. Thanks for the explanation - you are right about it appearing to have some depth of field going on. I would love to see a series of images like this.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Roy. I may post some similar shots in the future, but I'm not keen on series as a rule: I like to keep things a little diverse!
