Challenge: Chairs (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2010 Challenges
Camera: Canon Power Shot SX10 IS
Location: Queenscliff, Vic. Australia
Date: Feb 6, 2010
Aperture: 5.0
ISO: 80
Shutter: 1/400
Galleries: Abstract
Date Uploaded: Feb 7, 2010

A table and chairs at an al fresco dining area at the harbour in Queenscliff, shot as I was climbing a stairway up a viewing tower. The light was harsh (early afternoon, Australian summer) and I thought that the table top looked a bit peculiar, so I have gone with wild processing.

I don't know if this is getting hurt by the processing or not but I think it's pretty cool looking. Love the psychadelic colors.

Not sure what I'm looking at -- almost like an optical illusion. Can't wait to read about it.

Personally I'm not too keen on the pp. The game of lines however is great.

I guess that title describes the processing as well as the perspective. I'm not sure if it will have high scoring mass appeal, but I think it does work for this scene.

Bet you are getting slammmmmed with this processing! I think it might have worked if you had cropped the right side where it's all faded.
