About the Image(s)

Lumix, f/6.4, 1/400 sec, ISO 80

This was from the silhouetted pattern of bare tree branches against the sky.

I had seen something similar and was impressed by the abstract colors. This was done with Topaz AI ReMix. I did a little tweaking such as increasing the contrast and increasing the blacks in PS.

Colorful to say the least! It looks like a colorful rendition of a lung x-ray! It might also be a patterned glass mosaic. The yellows and the orange colors appear to be a bit "washed". I'd never recognize it as a tree.

A modern stained glass is what my initial thought was.Even given the quite remarkable creation of all that color, my eye seems to be running all looking for a place to settle. Is it all just a bit too confusing?   Posted: 03/13/2019 16:13:24

I like the image and you made good use of the editing tools you had available. Out of my league.   Posted: 03/17/2019 14:11:09

I, too, thought it was a stained glass window. It must be lots of fun to manipulate images with creative apps!
