The whole impressionism thing is new to me in photography -- I had never thought about it or tried it until a month or so ago. Here is an image of fall color on a stream...


Impressions of Trees by beanp, on Flickr

Like much of art, the appeal of impressionism comes down to personal taste, and I sort of like the color palette in this one. I'd be grateful for any comments positive or negative.

And thanks as always,
Keith

PS Some of these make interesting computer wallpaper (screen backgrounds) too.

Perhaps up the game beyond what actual impressionist painters could do? Make small half second gif clips to add motion to a abstraction?

Actually, I like the pic.

It would be great as an extra large canvas in the foyer.

Alternatively, this could be used as a texture map.

Or go crazy in different color directions:
















Or Crop

Keith, how about adding a slight amount of blur to give it a nice Monet look?

+1 ... it looks a bit oversharpened (possilbly due to downsizing)

Great ideas....

Aunti -- I don't know how to make gif clips so that will take some research and some work.

Almass -- I like the last crop -- hadn't thought of doing it that way.

beavens & Rusty - I thought of blur too but didn't (too lazy?!) try it. I will do that and see what happens.

Thanks much for the ideas and comments,
Keith

Just got spooked out.

I can see in the pic, a woman kneeling with her arms raised and with a Wolf face.
It is more apparent in the crop.

Does anybody see that or should I cut down on my coffee

I can see a creepy looking mask in the crop. Almost Michael Myers'esque.

Blurring or doing an oil paint technique would both be nice.

Looks like you can crop that guy out and still leave the image intact.

Your wish is my command: here's a slightly different view and I added just a touch of blur.

You can try also experiment with turning the camera (or image, in post) upside down.

wux -- that's a cool pic of the building -- neatly framed by the trees, steeple and all.
