About the Image(s)

For years I have enjoyed creating obstracts with Black Light. Much fun can be had with simple fluorescent objects (a red ball and two florescent slinkies}. “Bolada” received several acceptances, but for a different slant, I share with you: “Bolad Twirl” with the help of Photoshop Twirl Filter. Other abstracts can also be created with the Wave Filter.

Since this month's assignment was lighting, I don't think you could go wrong by submitting either the original or the modified versions. I do admire how you took the original and "twirled" it into an entirely fresh approach. The colors are beautifully bold. Both images are ones that brought a smile to my face.   Posted: 11/05/2019 19:53:08

I prefer the original - maybe it's because I sort of get dizzy with the other one. :) The colors are really nice.   Posted: 11/06/2019 14:54:07

Very colorful and entertaining. Your use of the Photoshop filters was excellent. The twisting of the colors really made an interesting view compared to the original.   Posted: 11/08/2019 18:01:42

I actually like both images. Is there such a thing as a fluorescent slinky? Or did you coat them with a fluorescent paint? Quite original concept, and of course the colors are vivid. Have you tried printing either picture? I've had so-so results with my images, the reds seem to be a particular problem.   Posted: 11/11/2019 07:53:26

Yes Jerry, you can find fluorescent slinky in toy stores. Yes, I did have one of these pictures printed with passible results, but the colors are kind of washed out. Here is another version, using the Wave Filter. Thank you.   Posted: 11/22/2019 19:23:35

I'm curious also about how well this would print. Such bold color sometimes doesn't translate to paper very well - at least not for me.
I do like both images. The wave is a bit more creative, but I like the simplicity and composition of the original too.
Very nice Joe.   Posted: 11/14/2019 12:02:28

Too dang fun! I love abstract art, especially brilliant colors. I like all 3 images and don't have anything to add other than well done!   Posted: 11/25/2019 08:41:11
