Sometimes processed images sit on my desktop for some time while I think about them and wait for my conflicting feelings about them to reach a consensus. Today’s image is a case in point. It was taken a year ago with a longish lens. I can’t remember exactly how I processed it, but the aim was to maximize the impact of the almost abstract array of colourful leaf-like shapes that comprise the image.
Almost every leaf is misshapen, or at an odd angle and many of them seem suspended in space. I still find it a difficult image to describe. The distorted shapes remind me a little of how some painters were very ‘loose’ in their painting of detail. What I do know is that I simply like it. Do you?
