Swinging back from the ornate complexity of the "Brocade" series and into simpler statements in both colour and composition. Another effort in finding new ways to give further expression to the Pano-Sabotage medium.

 

This series of 5 images was inspired by a comment made by Skagitrenee who said something like "I'd like to see you work in a more monochromatic way, with reduced colours". I had already been thinking that my next step would be simpler but Renee's comment clinched it for me.

 

This image, and the series is dedicated to her.

 

As I worked I also incorporated the use of "Gaussian Blur" for it's "atmospheric" potential, taking the crisp edges of the "Brocades" and softening them up in veils of evanescent, "cloud-like" light. In order to keep these from becoming some form of visual vichysoisse though I made sure to contrast part of the image with sharper forms in definition.

The complexity of life, even that of a 'simple' magnolia flower, never ceases to amaze me. And the closer one looks, the more amazing it gets.

 

Indeed, if we looked even closer than a macro photographer's lens can see, we would observe a level of complexity far beyond our imagination. As in every other living thing, each cell in this magnolia flower contains the DNA for the entire organism. In his book (the Selfish Gene), Richard Dawkins says of human DNA:

 

This DNA can be regarded as a set of instructions for how to make a body, written in the A, T, C, G, alphabet of the nucleotides. It is as though, in every room of a gigantic building, there was a book-case containing the architect's plans for the entire building.

 

Dawkins denies that there is a God, yet admits that all living cells contain information (instructions) and even likens it to architect's plans. No matter the medium in which it is stored (paper and ink, compact disk, DNA, etc) information has to have an author or, in Dawkin's analogy, an architect.

 

Sadly, Dawkins appears to recognise the unavoidable truth, yet still says there is no God. But the Bible says:

 

For the invisible things of Him [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

(Romans 1:20-22)

Dedicated to Catness Grace and Paul Ewing for sparking the idea.

The Sphere Within Sphere, also known as Sfera con Sfera, is a series of sculptures created by Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro depicting an enormous metal sphere with a cracked surface revealing an intricate interior with another cracked sphere inside.

 

Arnaldo Pomodoro says that the inner ball represents the Earth and outer ball represents Christianity. The design of the internal layers which look like the gears or cogwheels of a complex machine symbolizes the fragility and complexity of the world.

 

This sphere is at Trinity College in Dublin Ireland but it can be found at other prime location around the world. Originally created for the Vatican Church in the 1960s, also at the Headquarters of the UN in New York, The Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, USA, The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, the Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus and the Tel Aviv University in Israel, to name a few.

Happy Sliders Sunday

Processed in Luminar FX Photo Studio using a solarizing filter and color filters.

The almost fiber optic effect at the back of this Kingfishers head made us smile!

 

The wind was just enough to part the feathers. and it was interesting to see how the colour varied along each individual strand of hair. The same Kingfisher can look to have different coloring dependent on the light,, and this exquisite complexity is probably a major factor why

 

A little detail that adds to one of the most beautiful little birds you can find

  

The complexity of market stands is amazing. It's no wonder the market is always open, everything is stuffed with good and packaging what gives this woderful chaotic view.

I have made my first step into the Macro World and I have to say, I find it fascinating. I know that Dandelions are very popular subjects but I am not sure you have seen this interpretation before.

 

At the first look of this closeup, I have directly seen the allegory with the human brain. Even with less complexity and features, I believe Nature is much nicer graphically.

I am in Kuala Lumpur again this week, and guess what, I went to shoot the Petronas Towers again. It's a permanent quest to find new angles...For this one, I wanted a very geometric composition. The camera was on the non extended tripod, parallel to the ground. Took several shots (impossible to look in the viewfinder!), by slightly rotating the camera, checked the results on the LCD until I got the correct framing. Then I fired the seven auto bracketed shots.

 

Technique used: Smart Objects mixed with Digital Blending/Layer Masking. 7 exposures used. This is not a tone mapped HDR. I am pretty sure that tone mapping won't give me those color tones.
