Thanks for the response to yesterday's abstract.

I have worked one more from the same place, but not the same shot. I have uploaded the original too.

This one has been stretched to the side, but the reversed images have been stitched in to create the heavy central line.

It reminds me of a photo that I took of a peacock that I took in the grounds of Warwick Castle last summer, so I've uploaded that too.

I'm half expecting everyone to say they prefer the actual bird! ................well so do I. I can't improve on that, but it just reminds me of the peacock.

I've also added a moderation click, as Dawn made a manipulation on yesterdays image, and I had not added the button for her to upload it. So today she will be adding that. I'm really looking forward to seeing that Dawn.

Please feel free to work on today's picture anyone.

Thanks for looking
Have a good weekend
Helen

well spotted !
was wondering what was the relationship between the abstract & a peacock... though the blue tones and repeated pattern in #1 suggest it...

A brilliant idea, and well carried out too. There's definitely something 'peacocky' about this.

Heavens Helen! I thought it was that green plastic coated chicken wire stuff..this is amazing, OOOPS! just checked again..they are NOT all of the peacock! I was going to delete this but thought I would let you know what I thought initially..it must be because I am an infant teacher! I love the peacock shot.
