Natural Abstraction (Four Photographs)

A few months back I did a series in color of ferns unfurling. I was very pleased with the results. However, I pulled back these four and they have been on my desktop ever since. I saw them as abstractions, more jewel than fern. I knew that this would lead to B&W treatment, but I still had to work to get the feel I wanted. Abstract art, abstract photography has its fans and its detractors. The name I have given this post, “natural abstractions”, is an intentional statement that means to leave no doubt that nature has had the largest part in the creation of these images.

  8. Very nice conversion and processing. They remind me of appliques one might find on a fancy evening dress or gown.
