Uh oh..someone has been manipulating photos again. ;-) That's actually quite nice. What is it?

Tim Rice said...

What does your imagination tell you? Let your thoughts fly. Perhaps, it's just that.

Fred said...

Good answer, Tim. I immediately thought of a brand new snowfall in a field with a crisp blue sky. Very refreshing.

Edulabbe said...

Great picture!!!
Did you use some kind of kaleidoscopic lens???
Greetings from Chile

Ocean said...

Nice kaleidoscope picture. Guessing it is Trees and.....um not sure.

I think originally it was a cloud but now it's someone parachuting.

fjl said...

That's a stunner!

Anvilcloud said...

Phun with photos.

jamintake.blogspot.com - I still have to post as anonymous because you're still not on blogger beta. Hop to it! :P

Thanks, fred. That sounds so inviting and restorative. I think I could enjoy some winter before too long though I want time to enjoy autumn.

Thanks, edulabbe. I used a kaleidoscopic tool in Corel Paint Shop Pro X to produce this picture from a photograph originally consisting of mainly trees and a blue sky with some puffy, white clouds.

Thanks, ocean. You're pretty close. See my comment above. :)

Hi, murf. Now that's what I like to see - using your imagination to interpret the picture. We probably could come up with multiple interpretations. It looks like a cog wheel in the center of the picture. Or is that an alien space ship whose forces are tearing up the vegetation from below? ;)

Thanks, fjl. Glad it spoke to you. Thanks for visiting.

Hi, anvilcloud. Every now and then, I like to play with photos. Perhaps, sometime, I will create a separate blog just for playing with and creatively manipulating photos.

Thanks, mikaela. I would like to switch to the new beta blogger but Blogger hasn't made it available to me just yet without starting a completely new blog. By the way, I know I have at least one beta blogger who does sign in under his display name and it does work for him.

Ava said...

Wow, that is very cool. I like it!

Minka said...

Give toys to kids and they´ll play.
Fine tuned photo shop devices seem to do the same thing for soem grown ups :)
Glad your playing, ´cause the outcome is lovely!

Cergie said...

AHAHA !
Tim is not so busy with his job at the backerei of ... (I don't remember how to say in English,in French: ... de copeaux).
He still have time to play with photoshop !!

Ash said...

Interesting shot Tim!

Charley said...

Cool photo! I've been trying to figure what's in the middle. I think when you used the one image multiple times the refraction of light in the original photo made a snowflake-like image in the new photo, or something like that.

OK...I finally posted some photos from our day of hiking back in August if you'd like to see them :-)

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, paige. Glad you liked the transformed photo.

Hi, asma. Good to hear from you and I am glad that things are well with you. And, yes, your computer class comes first. I am doing well, too.

Hi, minka. It's theraputic to play even for adults! ;)

Hi, cergie. I find that I need to play most when I am the most busy. Does that make sense to you? ;)

Thanks, ash. I had fun playing with that photo.

Hi, charlie. Glad you liked it. I think your explanation fits at least partially. And I enjoyed your photos; makes me want to check it out myself some day.

Charley said...

Hmmmmm....could it be the moon?

Lynn said...

Christmas is what I see...

Anonymous said...

I think it must be the ceiling frescoe in Tim's dining room.

Tim Rice said...

charley, lynn, and kevin stilley, I appreciate all your creative thoughts. Maybe, it is all of them. :)

Reflex said...

Very nice kaleidoscopic image ! :)

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, reflex. Glad you enjoyed it. Kaleidoscopic images frequently fascinate me.
