I have to supply photos of "patterns" either man made or nature for my local photo club next month as part of our monthly competition. do these two look as if they would come into that catagory?

I'd say, ABSOLUTELY! Nice that you focused on the surface water, rather than the creek beds. Nice shots.

I do like the first shot very much but, maybe, in my understandings, it's not a complete pattern shot.

A pattern shot, as far as I know, should be showing something repetitive, a pattern ! ( almost something that could be tiled side by side ( almost not perfectly !).

In searching for that maybe it's better to shoot in a perpendicular way to the pattern you have found.

It's also good to break "pattern" with a contrasting element.

Check these wonderful Bryan Peterson pattern shots :

A long series of pattern photos ( even if some aren't really patterns and even if they are not as stunning as Bryan Peterson ones) can be found here, just to get some ideas :

I understand what Sergio is saying but in regards to the above photos I respectfully disagree. They may not be completed patterns but they definately are patterns. The last site noted has quite a few non continuous patterns and not completed patterns. Any way my favorite is the lavender water ripples, personal preference only. Would I go with one of these? You bet, with no reservations and quite a bit of pride if they were mine.

They're wonderful Julie. I really like the purple one.

As for what a pettern is. I've always thought a pattern was just an image made of shapes. Here's dictionary.com's take on it.
  • pat·tern
    n.

    1. A model or original used as an archetype.
    A person or thing considered worthy of imitation.

    2. A plan, diagram, or model to be followed in making things: a dress pattern. See Synonyms at ideal.

    3. A representative sample; a specimen.

    4. An artistic or decorative design: a paisley pattern. See Synonyms at figure.
    A design of natural or accidental origin: patterns of bird formations.

    5. A consistent, characteristic form, style, or method, as:
    A composite of traits or features characteristic of an individual or a group: one's pattern of behavior.
    Form and style in an artistic work or body of artistic works.

    6. The configuration of gunshots upon a target that is used as an indication of skill in shooting.
    The distribution and spread, around a targeted region, of spent shrapnel, bomb fragments, or shot from a shotgun.

    7. Enough material to make a complete garment.

    8. A test pattern.

    9. The flight path of an aircraft about to land: a flight pattern.

    10. Football. A pass pattern.

That should give you lots of ideas from outside the box.
And they couldn't reject them either. :lol:
