Spherical Layers

By capto
The original image was of half an apple. It was converted to the final image with PS 3D tools. It may not be photography, but is it anything else? Should I hang it on the wall or put it in the bin? It would be great to have opinions for and against.

The issue here is: Does it please you Ivor ! People's opinions should not influence our observation of an image. Personally I like the creativity in this image !! Excellent and imaginitive Smile

I love it Grin - lovely piece of abstract art. I for one would be proud to print that on canvas and hang it on my wall!

I like this. It could be changed in many ways. For me it's not brill but might be with at some stage in your process. I feel it has too much bright area at the bottom.
Keep on going.

I would only say that the bottom segment looks a little artificial...but as Herman's all about whether you like it. Would you hang it on your wall? Smile

I like it, Ivor. V1 reminds me of the opening of a crystal geode, and WOW its beauty bursts forth! I always find manipulations such as this to be fascinating, and "see" all sorts of things within them.
You can be as creative as you like, which I see from your portfolio that you have done before, and I particularly like "Life's A Ball". There, I think you chose a perfect subject for that type of manipulation.
Your coloured version is lovely, but I favour the mono because it has depth, good strong contrasts and defined shape.

Of course its something thats abstract, produced photographically, that can be displayed successfully.

The trick is to remove the empty spaces where there evidence of the use of polarization filters, and use ONLY the interesting parts. Its already been mention that they look artificial by cats, so even a person not recognising the polarising filter views it as odd.

To show one of the many possibilities with this, I have loaded a mod as if its framed i a square print.

I hope this makes sense, and you have fun with it. Its a real artistic medium.

V1, mono, is very strong and impressive. Not so keen on the colour version. Is it, or was it ever, a photograph. Not now, but a strong piece of art.

I agee, I prefer the mono. The image was an half apple to start.
