Palm leaves, Sheri, shot in IR. Then you double the canvas size and put an inverted copy in the second part of the canvas. Carefully align, flatten and hey presto!

Cheers

It is the most dramatic, I think, of the set, Pamela - It shows the power of symmetry on an odd shape to generate all sorts of things in the mind - Rorschach tests are based on this.

Glad it's fave of faves!!!

This one is the most astonishing! The shadows work so very well for the depth of this creation! At first instance it looked like paper shredded...but I see what it is: one of your infrared creations of palmtrees (Tunesia;)?!
Did you notice: When you look at the thumbnail, you see 2 swans looking to eachother...on the big image not so much!

Bye now DaviD :)

BTW: It was a nice surprise to get acquainted with you in person on you page...and it felt very familiar....you look almost the same as I imagined ....:)

You're absolutely correct re the swans, Erica - I hadn't noticed! In fact, if you squint your eyes to blur the full size image, the swans pop out! Wow! As I've said to Pamela and Alexander, above and below, this is an example of the type of image beloved by some psychologists - and used in what is known as the Rorschach test. We see in it what we can. You are correct that is one of the Tunisian shots. You are not confined to photographs for this technique - any image can be transformed - another technique for you!

Cheers

As always you are familiar with all kind of disciplines, at this point psychology and the famous "folded black inkmarks" of Rorschach!!! ;)

Very nice - I've messed around with duplicating and making composit stuff myself and have another account on here just for that - not that I'm on it much these days!! [link] They can work out quite creative though

Pam - These are all thanks to Michael who produces some brilliant work. At the moment it's a bit of fun. I must look out for scenes that would lend themselves to this treatment.

Thanks

Glad you like it, Alexander. It is one of my IR images treated in the polar co-ordinate manner. Looks like a butterfly I suppose - Rorschach might have wanted it for his tests.

Yes, lots of things are fun, when you know how.
I got the spectrometer today :-)
The blue plastic casing transmits IR, so will have to be painted. Them I need to make a mount for it, to the camera.
So all going well I will be able to shoot some sunshine on Friday & see all the pretty colours.
