You had a lot of fun playing in Photoshop, EG!

Fun shots. I like the creative versions and am glad I don't have to pick a favourite.

Lowell said...

Serious photographers see what they do as an art and one should make use of all the tools possible to create that which is unique to them.

Are these for sale, or rent? Is it a governmental project? Just curious to see so many greenhouse frames in one place.

Hi Lowell,

The Holland Marsh is a 21,000-acre wetland area in Ontario that was drained (many years ago) and approximately 7200 acres are now agricultural land.

I don't know for sure why there are so many greenhouses but I am guessing these in this photo are for growing vegetable seedlings to get a jump on spring.

very creative and I liked the last one best.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I like all the different looks. It's too hard to choose a favorite.
Enjoy your weekend!

Susan said...

Evidence of a real artist. Not only do you take wonderful pics, but it's fun playing with them isn't it?

Jen said...

Fun seeing all the different versions. I don't have any of that fancy software yet. Maybe when I finally get a new computer, I'll make the investment. Looks like a lot of fun to play with the different filters.

William Kendall said...

Pretty shapes, and I like what you've done with it!

GreenComotion said...

Beautiful structure, Tina. I like the B&W transformation, but the others are nice too.

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)

Stephanie said...

Wow! Love all the different post editing processes you did on each photo.

Randy said...

I like the b&w version.

An interesting composition which is enhanced by some nice effects.

I like what Lowell said I have heard it before and it took the pressure off for a while I thought editing was cheating not anymore and you had fun :)

Photoshop, an adult's toy.

MadSnapper said...

I like all of the edits, i think the cooling is my favorite but it is a tie with warming filter

NatureFootstep said...

lol, I love it! You have done a great job with the filters. Seems you have a great eye for colors.

If you like, I have the optional theme "brown" in DAM the coming wednesday. There are brown colors in your images. Maybe you would like to join? :)

This structural image was made for black and white EG, so much fun playing with effects.

Susan Anderson said...

Those actually look kind of majestic!

I am so happy that you were inspired to make this wonderful geometric art - and it is not too late to add it to the linky either.
My favourite? I think the cooling filter version..but a hard choice to make.

CJ said...

I like all of your versions. The frames make for a great abstract because the same basic shape is repeated again and again.

Interesting. I just passed a scene very similar to this yesterday. I was at an intersection with a stop light in the middle of nowhere, yet suddenly there was traffic going in all directions. By the time I got my camera out, I had to move and there was nowhere to pull over, so I missed it.

Great picture to play with :)
I love the blue cooling version very much.
Great job!
Have a fine day

marsha said...

cool abstracts...I really like the first blue one. Great photo to start with too!

Andrea @ From The Sol said...

Wow, you are indeed artistic ... that is why you are such an awesome photographer ... it's that artistic eye. These are great. I just watched a program about the plastic green houses in Spain. Very impressive. Anyway, I agree with Lori ... I like the cool version the best. Really nice EG.
