I was in a glass store and decided to try some abstract shots. This is looking down into a vase
This is out of the camera but I did bump up the color.
I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.
Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases (and sometimes I will sharpen them) but I try not to use too much “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.
My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.
