Tried to get abstract art from a fast flowing river.

Did it work? Tell me.

Or how about this with a crop.

I'm looking for something for the guest room wall in say 11x14....or so!

I like 1 & 3. I think #2 is too narrow for me.

How about cropping so it looks like 1 & 3 were a panorama that was divided into 2 pictures. Frame each 1/2 and hang side by side.

Just a thought.

Nice shot anyway.

Interesting idea Robin, I'll try that. In the meanwhile I split #2 Just to try it...(It was quicker..:-))

OK, I was being lazy wasn't I?

I put this together just for a quick Demo. In real size I could make up 3 mounted print for the wall.

Thanks for the input Robin. I may give that a try tomorrow or a variation on a theme.:-)

.....hi Ken,

The individual photos just aren't my liking..... I've never enjoyed seeing water smoothed.

Butttt!! cropping, pairing or splitting with narrow separation as in your 3-piece example I like very much.

Cropping just the water is perfect too in that the result depicts a certain artistry (IMO) and for me it does not project the 'smooth water affect'.

I would surely do a two or three side by side no smaller than 10x8, then depending on wall space set the framing size to satisfy.......... that would be quite nice photo art. Print to matte or canvas and do separate open framing or board mount could work well too. I see lots of possibilities................

Happy to see you here,
__________

Thanks Herc. appreciate your comments.

Hey Bob, good of you to join in. I agree with you on the individual shots, they're nothing but I'm liking the 3 together. I feel a sort of abstract that tells tale (short one :-)) I don't mind water being 'smoothed' as you say in the right circumstancesand I like that it shows motion.Besides with the speed of the water and the light I didn't have a lot of choice!!

I was thinking 'board mount also, I have some MDF that would work nicely with black edges and I have some canvas to print on as well. I'll let you know how it goes.

I do come and post here now and then and I like to browse. There are some excellent photos posted in here and I'm always learning and getting ideas.

Thanks, Ken
