    Enjoyed the whole week, good work. I prefer “Purple Haze” quite a bit. Surprisingly, the symmetry in this photo is not as dynamic. I think you found a new way to view a landscape that has been photographed by a lot of different photographers. I can imagine a gallery full of the “purple like images” for a show. Again, nice work.

    hints of an evolution of some of the St Louis arch ideas. The really low contrast/ high key processing makes it tough to view on a laptop – there is about one angle I can see anything. Looking at it I wonder how it would feel without the divider – the mirrored images pushed right up against each other.

    Hi Travis and Gordon,

    Thank you for being here!

    This one was very personal and light hearted and was actually a riddle of sorts. I’ll just leave it at that. Its good to be back here posting. The beauty of production is that its the common thread that connects all of the good stuff. “Underworld” is a shot I could never have imagined… it just happened in the process of looking at some of my desert abstracts in a new way. Its a recent all time personal favorite and has me thinking about a series of images that are very similar……Craig

    Hi, Craig – if you joined these with their outer edges facing each other, the feeling and the mystery would be quite different. I love playing with abstracts like these. There are also two other edges to be played with! If you use the Distort>Spherize filter, you may get one of those lovely pastel opals.

    A series of these diptychs would be great.
