Four identical images, with each one being flipped either vertically, and horizontally, or both, to form an abstract image using the merging process in photoshop. This is now a strong abstract patterned image called Aquatic Waves.

I like these abstract pictures that you have done. I find them strangely compelling. I love the colours and tones in this one!

I just love the rythem and flow this has. the colors you chose I think compliment the image very nicely. The eye just flows around this image never getting bored but not overwhelmed. I would call this true ART! Very nicely done....Bravo!!

Ok Robert, I will try your suggestion, as I think it has metit.....

I do hope I am not doing to many images with agave plants, but it is a personal favorite subject matter to me as I just love them.

I still have so many ideas, in my head to experiement with, so keep checking out my portfolio.....

Now this one is quite beautiful. Here you are getting into interesting territory. Have you tried cropping the original a tad around the area that is currently the center of this image, so that you don't get that faint sense of "horizon"? It might be worth experimenting with. I like this very much.

Beautiful. It looks like the bottom is a perfect reflection on water of the top half. I'd like to play around with this concept when I find the time. Just added it to my favorites.

That's really neat, in my head it's the Emerald City, about to meet the Wizard. ;-) I love how the "floor" looks like polished glass.

That is freakin cool. Amazing to take something we see daily and turn it into an incredible image of pattern and color variation.

You may inspire me to try some similarly creative stuff. Good work!

If you read this, you will now see the result I was trying to achieve with my image, by the method above, re my photographer's comments.

I achieved what I set out to do, and I am very pleased with the result.

1 - A photo taken by me.
2 - Processed and colortoned to the image I wanted.
3 - Four Identical images arranged to form an abstract pattern.
