I'm not so much a fan of this sort of image, but this one catches my eye, Bambi.

Perhaps it's the 'landscape' feel of it and by that I mean what appears to be the reflections at the bottom. Whatever it is, I find the image surprisingly appealing.

May I ask what I am looking at and how you did it?

This one is very cool I could see this as part of a desktop theme. I have seen some that use patterns behind the tool bar and as wall paper that are not nearly a cool a this.

thanks guys I am glad that you like it. It started as a photo of some gem stones I took at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I just seemed to be asking me to play with it so I did. I loved the flame feel that came when I added a warp effect and stretched it out. I then copied the image, pasted it as a new layer, flipped it upside down, reduced the opacity and the combined it into one. I played with changing the colour but didn't like it as much as the white.

Thanks for taking the time to 'splain what you did, Bambi. Interesting. I bow to your creativity here.

You lost me at "warp effect"! I'm afraid my "creative" side doesn't think that many steps ahead. This inspires me to try to think beyond the box next time I'm dabbling in PS, Bambi. Though I'm not quite sure how this will work on my sock-monkey photo.

thanks everyone! I think of it like fingerpainting. just try something on a new layer. if you like it - keep it, if not delete it. you end up with a stack of layers but it preserves your steps.

I was just as mystified by this image as everyone else. It didn't matter that I hadn't seen the "explanation" before I posted my original response to this image.

I must admit that from a purely scientific and optics perspective, I remain mystified, and quite frankly I want to remain that way.

In my last analysis, this image will be a constant reminder to me of how EVERY image is a construction of mind; we make them; they don't exist on their side; there is no other side. There isn't even this side.

thanks Lucille.

John- I couldn't agree more. sometimes the mystery is best. most of the time I can't recreate what I've done- which I view as a good thing!
