This to me is a piece of crumpled aluminium foil. Very abstract & would make a great texture.
I created an abstract image from it using patterns and blending modes in Photoshop   Posted: 11/08/2020 10:40:12

Nice job. The mix of colors adds some vibrance and dimensionality to the image. I'd love to know more detail of your process.   Posted: 11/08/2020 10:59:48

You're getting close - I used a digital microscope connected to my smartphone.   Posted: 11/09/2020 15:44:01

Looks like a leaf. Or maybe skin cells. A fingerprint?   Posted: 11/09/2020 21:23:08

You're right that it's a macro shot, but hair is not involved.   Posted: 11/13/2020 00:04:45

I thought that a microscope was involved, but would have guessed hair or skin cells, which were already shot down. So I have no idea.   Posted: 11/19/2020 16:00:23

I'm thinking a pile of mowed grass that isn't freshly mowed, thus the brown hues shot using a microscope.   Posted: 11/20/2020 02:07:12

I can see where you might think that, but no.   Posted: 11/20/2020 09:27:52
