    love this one ReD. WIthout a title, it might have nearly been an abstract with possibly only the swimmer's hair giving away the secret.

    Thanks Luke

    This is pretty realistic other versions are pure abstract

    I like it when I have no idea how to recreate an image, like this. Like not knowing how to play a song, I stop focusing on the mechanics of it and just enjoy it.

    This is a fairly simple collage where I apply my own textures from the library I'm building - making your own means you are not falling into the trap of using standardised off the peg stuff available on Snapseed etc

    I know what you mean though - I've been busy finding stuff on flickr which is a lot more involved & I have no idea how they got to their end result - one day I'll crack that, and while I don't want to replicate it would be nice to know the processes & tools.

    Exactly. I'm not interested in duplication, but unraveling the process is educational.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I think it still IS an abstract and a damned interesting one at that...

    Like it. The 'real' abstract is cool.
