A Little Bit Different

I would welcome any thoughts on this.

The photo is of the beach after the tide has gone out. I added an extreme filter as the sand was not an appealing colour.

I like the structure - I can see a flame in there - like from a candle.
I am not too fond of the colour - might have either bleached it a lot or maybe even converted to B&W to focus only on the shapes and lines. Just my idea Smile

Hi Isabel. I can see the flame too. I think the colour is a bit like marmite. B&W dIdn't look that great. I will try bleaching. Thankyou

The interpretation is down to the viewer.....I see the outer husk of some sort of seed-head ??....fascinating !!.Smile

As an abstract image, I think it works great. I can understand why you've done it as a portrait format, but have you tried landscape instead? It's one of those images that work well either way round Smile

I think the warm tone is okay, but as Isabel says it could look fantastic in black and white, depending on how you do it and how work with the tones ... ??

TanyaH- i will need to get to grips with Lightroom and re-visit B&W.
Thank you.
