About the Image(s)

A color photo and used Canon Raw to adjust the exposure, contrast , shadows, highlight, black, white, clarity, vibrance then to Photoshop CC for layers of level, curves and the to merge visible, then to sharpen, and on this one it had a blue cast so went to color balance to try and get rid of it. Then to Topaz labs detail to bring out the shadow details and then crop to what I wanted it for you to see.

At first glance John, until I read your explanation, I thought this was a part of a zebra. For some reason I think this should be a horizontal, but taken as an abstract perhaps it doesn't matter. To my view,the white spot about 1/4 of the way down on the L needs to match the greys as does the area about 1/4 way up on the R side, and there is a green spot that seems not to belong. I can understand your seeing this and well done for your eye, but to me it doesn't quite make it.   Posted: 07/01/2018 05:40:32

John, I love pictures of repeating shadows since the patterns are often lovely and interesting. In this image, I find that there are too many shadow lines to make my eyes see them as a pattern. Your idea is great and your cropping is perfect, however I can't quite "get into" this one.

At first glance it looks like the back end of a zebra. However, one can look at it as an abstract drawing. I can't say much more about the image; but I might put it into a frame.   Posted: 07/05/2018 21:58:24
