Deadly Whirlpool       ©2013 Mepo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       17th place, 51 points
1/1000s, f5.6, ISO 80, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped from RAW. Cartoon filter. Adj levels.       Extra Info: "There was a swirling mass of water,
that lived in a quiet pond." Whirlpool - Song by the Meat Muppets.
This is the water at the base of a waterfall in the spring. The water is very dirty from the spring runoff so the abstract challenge gave me a chance to make it look more attractive - I hope.

    mrsawyer - thanks for the comment - I will try and post the original.
Old Finn - I appreciate the comment - especially with your expertise in eyes.
RolandB - Glad to get support for the muted effect. I did try a more garish version but found I missed the nuance in the darker shades - a little worrying actually - I make be going over to the dark side :-)

    Cool. Never would have know what this is. Like the muted colors. Nicely done.

    An interesting picture, pleasing to my eyes. Abstract enough. High in my TT.

    The churning water created an abstract there for the taking! Good choice! Not sure if the cartoon filter was needed though. Would like to see it with the level adjustment but without the cartoon filter if possible.

    A good result. I would like this printed onto a silk fabric.

    LaRee - Exactly what I was aiming for. Not sure it will work for everyone but I wanted something different and more inviting.
neat - Welcome to the site - I appreciate your comment. Unfortunately all I have around here in the spring is muddy water so I decided to work with it - blue waves would have been great though. This pp was fun and very new to me.
fc - Too true. Thanks for commenting.
tvsome - Hey - I found a kindred spirit. That's exactly what I liked - getting lost in the softer tones. Wow - I'm amazed you felt it.
Jade - One chair fabric coming up - it will help hide all the beer spills from when we finally meet LOL Thanks for commenting.

    Might make an interesting chair fabric but not so sure I'd want it on my wall. I give this high marks for abstract and low marks for dynamic quality. It looks incredibly flat and static to me.

    Good choices. The processing successfully emphasizes the abstract qualities. The range of tones work to make it nearly three dimensional to my eyes.

    muddy waters are difficult however well done. maybe a slower speed to get the movenment and thankyou for no milky water shots

    I did not particularly like this image initially. My first impression was that is was kind of boring because the colors were so muddy and of such a similar, unexciting hue. But the more I looked at it, the more I grew to like how the subtle variations of the white/cream/brown/gray colors created interesting shadows and light patterns. It is actually quite engrossing, but it is an image that has to be enlarged or viewed close enough to appreciate those interesting patterns. Definitely in my top 10.

    Has an abstract quality to it, but I feel the quality of the water doesn't really appeal to me, maybe the foamy blue waves of the sea would of been more of a knockout. Still I like the PP to this quite cool!

    I like the painting quality that you've developed into this image. It is an effective abstract for sure.
