Portrait of a Tree – XIV – abstract art

This is really more like portrait of leaves.   But as I paused along the trail, the bright green of these new leaves against the blue sky really caught my eye.   I felt like the image had a nice abstract feel to it.



Deciding to “play” with that abstract image, I manipulated the photo above in my post processing software and came up with this effect.



I rather like the effect, what do you think?

    very nice

  2. Nice. Either photo would make a nice FB “cover” photo if you ever decide to switch over to the timeline format. I know, Carol. You’re holding out as a protest but eventually you’ll succumb. 🙂

  3. The second would make a great color and pattern combo for a fabric. I could see it in a dress or a quilt of course!

    Aren’t those new leaves intensely green when backlit. Almost hurts your eyes they’re so bright.

    • Even yesterday in the fog, as I was driving from work to the recycling center, the green of the trees against the white of the fog was pretty spectacular. Did I have my camera with me? Of course not.

        Isn’t that always the case! Just when you need it most you don’t have it with you. Oh well… there’s always next time.
