It’s Abstract Fridays – P

Now, first and foremost, remember, I don’t post process. Secondly, I wanted the spot of green tree in the picture. I thought it gave some place for the eye to rest before coming back to the P on the left. If I didn’t want it in the shot, I would have framed it differently. So, having said that, you have my abstract post for the day.

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Fuji HQ ISO 200
Shutter Speed - 1/90
Aperture Setting - f-8 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 70-300mm lens
Polarizing Filter
Scanning Method - York Photo Labs’ scan

I am liking it.

Even without reading that u wanted the spot of green in the shot, I already knew that. Hey give us some credit. Just that sometime you always have annoying people like me go "I would have prefferred....." :)

I like it a lot too. Simple and elegant. I love the crispness of the stop sign against the blurriness of the tree. Good shot!

Good. I'm glad you put the green in. I like that it's out of focus. You still look at the p but the green is soothing.

Nice bold primaries here, super impact and, yes, love the green peeping in.

I like the composition of this. We know what this is, we just have to view it differently.

That bit of soft green is essential in balancing out the composition - well chosen!

Definitely more Abstract Fridays! I really should check out your Photo Lab; you think they would ship prints and stuff overseas?

Those colours really 'pop', Micki. And yes, it's one of those 'dead on' shots where you just say: "Yes!"
