Congrats to each of the contributors on this one.

First, to Patti on her grand-daughter!

Second, to all of us for the diversity of submissions.  I agree with Ulana that there are plenty of opportunities to learn from these images.  We just have to get out and practice them😎.

It's alway exciting and instructive to see how two people interpret the same scene, as with Char's and Patti's trees.  I am about to post the May challenge, and it won't preclude incorporating some of the techniques presented in this challenge.

I like Patti's #4 because it creates a surreal space, not reality identified.  I see a man coming down an escalator in a metro stop with trains passing on either side, even though he appears to be walking on a rectangular cloud.  Very cool!

Cheers,
lloyd

Hi Lloyd,

I'm glad u like the last photo - It was taken at the New Oculus Mall at ground Zero in NYC, a very white building  inside and out.   It's a huge metro station & shopping mall.   Lots of photo possibilities!!

Visited our local tulip fields yesterday - the last day before they snip the flowers off. This image, however, is from two years ago. A bit of ICM.

Great complimentary color and perspective.  I've looked at this off and on for several days.  Depending on the day and the monitor, sometimes the motion is unsettling and hard to look at for long; sometimes not.   Is that just me?

Lloyd - I'm with you on the "hard to look at". Weird. I don't know what is causing that. One of the reasons I posted the image - to get other's reaction. I can't recall any other image I've created that so strongly evokes this "can look at" sensation. Is there a Dr in the house who can provide some insight? Mr Motzi?

Seems like there is nothing stabile to anchor the eye. It may be similar with trying to focus on an image with no in-focus content, although in this case, much of the image is in focus.
