Photography As Abstract – Lord of the Rings
Okay, this isn’t The Lord of the Rings, but the resulting image reminded me of the story somehow, to my eye there’s a mythic feel to it.
This is one of the abstract images I took last week (see the earlier post here). The subject is part of a wood gate where the sun and greenery could be seen behind it. I loved the carved wood in this and wanted to see what effect the sun behind it would have on the photo. I moved the camera in a downward slant from right to left as I pressed the shutter release, so that there would be movement in more than one way (the horizontal of the wood would add the counteracting element). This was the image I got.
I really like the other worldly feel of this. Do you get a similar feel? As always, let me know what you think of this one. Love hearing comments. (:
This was shot with my 35-70 lens at f/22 and a shutter speed of 1/6. I desaturated the photo a bit when processing the raw image, and that was it.
