    We haven't had an abstract challenge in a while! For this week's challenge, think in the abstract and get your creativity flowing.

    Please include the info on how you created your abstract. For example: in camera double exposure, lens zoom, intentional camera movement, subject isolation etc. If you create your abstract using post process, provide some details on program used (PS, Affinity, Prisma...) and the technique/filter used. For example Affinity Photo/liquify and mirror.

    As always, new photos only for the weekly challenge please! Get out there and shoot.

    This afternoon photographed a number of plants and flowers from my neighbor downstairs as my basic material for some abstract tinkering.

    # 1 green color of plant changed to blue coloration via gradient mapping

    # 3 made a layer with a plugin named "twist" emphasis on the color yellow, obtained a gray glow as an extra. made a black/white layer and combined both layers with the yellow elements 'pushed' in saturation to create a special accent.

    # 4 same plugin as #3, combined with plugin named "drop ripple" positive and negative image combined and edited with plugin "gradient mapping" plus added quite a bit of saturation and extra yellow tint.

    Fill the frame. Illuminate subject with speedlight to add clarity and saturation inside the frame. No edit, soc. Used snapseed to resize.
