About the Image(s)

This is the result of fooling around with a fire works photo. I applied many twirl layers and reduced the opacity of them so that the original fireworks showed through.

The white burst in the upper right power point is good composition. I am glad that you added a frame around the image to separate it from the black website page. This is not my thing, but it has a lot of impact.   Posted: 01/11/2020 18:50:46

When I had a 1st glance, I was thinking, how the fire work can be such shape, then I thought you must did a creative post process work.
It has some abstract art idea. This is a beautiful creative work.   Posted: 01/12/2020 16:09:23

Very creative. I like the what appears to be the progression from partially exploded to fully explodes. the image really captures ones attention.   Posted: 01/13/2020 13:41:32

Hi Barbara
I have taken many firework images but never thought of doing anything like this it looks amazing I think fooling around is not giving yourself the credit you deserve for this image not only enjoyed it as an abstract but it made me smile.
This is the beauty of the PSA groups you learn so much from others ingenuiety,   Posted: 01/15/2020 14:48:01

From my perspective, Barbara, this colorful image is an impactful creative abstract image which draws my eyes into the initial burst, then has me follow the swirl around to your addition. I favor the digital framing.   Posted: 01/19/2020 15:50:12
