Challenge #3 - Butterfly vision

    Newer Older

    Challenge #3 for the 26 by 26 group: Pretend you are an animal (earthworm, cat, bat, sparrow, etc.), imagine what you would perceive and take a photo from this perspective
    — Michael Reisch

    My interpretation of how a butterfly would see a yellow daylily
    (butterflies see ultraviolet colours, have large compound eyes with many lenses, probably giving a kind of mosaic view and their visual range is limited and narrow)

      That's a great take on the subject. I particularly like the detail of the mosaic (texture?)

      Love the colours and yes that mosaic texture too. Nicely done Inge :)

      Finally, a good use for that PS filter! Excellent idea and execution.

      Thanks very much for your comments and for the favourites ! Wasn't sure at all if I did the right thing by submitting this, as it's so different from my regular flower pictures. But this was in my head from the moment I read the challenge. And yes, the mosaic was made with the help of the PS mosaic filter :-)

      That's one of the wonderful things about this group. It pushes you to try new ideas, techniques and step outside your boundaries. Really well done :)
