Abstracts and more

Some of my first shots with the K10D taken in September and October of 2007. I love abstracts, patterns and whimsy. Always a challenge to capture something different.

Nice shots. I too enjoy abstract patterns (especially when produced by mother nature). I will often use them as backdrops for portrait work (Photoshop them in later, etc). I do have one question for you. Have you considered using a soft watermark to identify your photos rather than such bold text. It is just very distracting and detracts from your pictures.

Very lovely images. They all came out beautifully.

When I apply my name to my photos I like to blend the text layer in using something like "Grain Extract" mode and play with the percentage until I get it down to the point that it protects the image without being overly noticeable/distracting.

Thanks for the comments. I am working on a more subtle watermark, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I really like the texture of the first shot. It looks like a close up of an oil paintings bristle marks. Keep em coming.
