Official Abstract/Surreal Thumbshare: May 2013

:iconarctoa:

Overview

Hallo; I'm ^arctoa and I'm the Community Volunteer for Abstract and Surreal Photography. As part of my effort to bring abstract and surreal art to wider attention, I am hosting these monthly thumbnail exhibitions for you guys to post up thumbnails of your abstract/surreal deviations. Or, if you prefer, you can post some abstract/surreal work made by others that you particularly enjoy.

The best work submitted will make its way into a special Feature Friday news article at the end of the month.

While my main focus is with abstract and surreal photography, feel free to post work from other media; this is about showcasing the genre as much as the medium. With that in mind, please check out (and comment upon) the work featured herein.



Rules

- Post no more than Five thumbs in total. This is to ensure you post only what you consider to be high quality work.

- Post abstractions and surrealisms only. While work from any medium is welcome, there are other threads for other genres.

- Keep comments respectful on the works of others. This isn't a discourage of constructive critique, only blind abuse.

It's my pleasure. :highfive:

Btw, as a gallery director do you find infrared landscape photos more suiting for the surreal or the landscape folder?
:?

Firstly, apologies for the delayed response.

Secondly - and this is just my own thoughts on the matter - I think it depends upon what's in the composition, really. My first inclination, were I to take any myself, would be to place them in Landscape unless the subject matter itself contained an otherworldly element. That said, I think it's fair to place them in Surreal because of the tonal oddities that are produced. Basically, it's a matter of preference and I certainly have no issue seeing infrared landscape shots in the Surreal category.

This is zentangle, in case you're wondering. It's my first project with the style, but already I love it! Look it up if you have time, and definitely try it! It may look complicated, but it's really simple, relaxing, and easy.

I'm glad I found this post and more importantly someone who's into my favorite genres of photography like you. I'm very into Surreal and Abstract photography, but not very experienced thu as I'm just a hobbyist after all. If there's any chance that there are activities I could help with so I promote and gain more experience in those genres I'd be very glad to join. I realize that this is a bit off-topic but I thought I might take an advantage of stumbling over your post.



Those 3 deviations above are mine and those 2 below belong to 2 fellow photographers I enjoy their quite a lot
