About the Image(s)

The original image of the watch (see thumbnail image) was taken a few years ago with my Lumix, and it was shared/critiqued with this group. I used it when learning the Mirror Lab app. The abstract (final) result is just one example of many things you can do with the app.
In Mirror Lab, I used the Ice Cubes setting. I adjusted the photo and then the settings to create the melting look. The adjustments are easy and done on the touchscreen with finger movements and/or sliders. I adjusted the white balance in Snapseed for a cooler, glassy look.
It might not be your thing, but the apps are exciting to me. I use them often on phone and regular camera images. I love the creativity.

This is a very creative image, and I think the object suits this creative scene very well. I like how somehow the image seems to comply to the rule of thirds/golden ratio too. Well done!   Posted: 02/08/2021 22:02:49

As you said, this is not for everyone, and I don't think that I would go in this direction. Having said that, I must admit that the final result is very intriguing and makes the viewer look carefully and explore the image. At first, I thought of an object distorted by glass bricks. What's interesting is that anyone of the 15 squares renders a different image, but that they all contribute to a harmonious picture. The tones are the right ones.   Posted: 02/10/2021 21:31:36

Your soft ware Mirror Lab works fantastic. The image reminds me of the melting clock of Dali. A very creative image. Lovely!   Posted: 02/12/2021 09:54:05

I agree with the other comments that you have created something quite interesting. However, it is not something that I would ever try, as I don't consider myself creative enough.   Posted: 02/12/2021 12:44:49

The final composition works very well. The triangular parts of the watch in the end corners add to the flow. (Without them, the flow would be abrupt}. From the original, have you also tried warping the watch?   Posted: 02/17/2021 11:14:33

An unedited, fast warped version. You can go in all directions with the warp feature, as with the others, for some wild images. You can repeat, add different, multiple features... I never have a plan, I just try things.   Posted: 02/18/2021 10:04:35
