    Anyone else like to make abstract art from your photos?

    I like to play with some of my photos for fun and create abstract art from them. Flowers work pretty well because they are bright in color. Any comments welcome! Enjoy

    1=blue pansys

    2=calanthe orchid

    3=blue&purple hydangas

    4=pink camilia

    5=pinkish/lavender peony

    Hi Suzanne,

    Well that's new, I don't think we've had anyone do this before, quite a neat idea.

    I could even see some of the larger patterned ones (say #4 or #5) as table mats or coasters (drinks mats), if you know what I mean (maybe called something different stateside).

    Nice one, (well 5)

    Thanks,

    Very nice Suzanne.

    I did this one from a sunset photo!
    Well, I didn't do it, PP did. ;o)

    Hi Donald, I have a section which performs reflection effects in my Paintshop Pro, It produces some amazing results and makes me look clever, which I can assure you, I most definately am not.

    Wirefox, That is really good, I would just simply not have the imagination to produce something like that.

    I would've never thought of doing that with images. I'll have to try it.
