[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In keeping with Friday's Natural Abstract Theme I have taken shot of Antelope Canyon and messed with it a bit to make the image bit more abstract.

I have a series of Antelope Canyon posting in my gallery from a few months ago - a mystical place. Thanks for the visit.

Interesting PP work, Dan.
It brings out the essence of the picture: light.
Your light beam got solid.
Have a nice weekend,

Excellent art work Daniel, you paint this image...
Nice colours and whole composition.

Good job!


I would love to visit this place! It looks so incredible with all those rustic colors! Nice pp work on this one! Adding to the theme perfectly!

Hi Dan,
I like the result of your "messing". Really nice progression from the almost abstract image of the original image.
Very creative use of effects.

The theme seems to have inspired you to mess around and come up with your own natural wonder:) I love how the sweeping lines draw the eye to the waterfall, and how there is a captivating hypnotic glow. Exciting!

Hi Dan. Nice bit of posterisation. A great interpretation of a classic image. I'm not too sure about inclusion of the title in the photo space as there's plenty of room on the border. A minor criticism in the big scheme as it's a lovely image. Regards, Paul.

i'm sure without the PP it's better as this fantastic place doesn't need any transformation

hi daniel, good idea, looks very abstract, this must have been amazing to see, thanks, scott

Looks like a paint. I can see a man in front of a woman, with a light of energy between them. I like it. TFS


Good morning Daniel

Suoerb capture here, excellent colours and lines and a definitve abstract feel to the image. Neat framing enhances the shot perfectly

TFS and for joining in the theme

Well done with your PP work here Daniel.. surely is a nice abstract for the theme..great colours... Im wondering about the writing on the actual photo though ?,could be distracting..just my thoughts, but its great to experiment.

Best wishes

Hi Daniel..:)
Very nice pp work done on this image..good idea and beautiful abstract..good for the theme...thumb up my friend..:)


Hi Dan,

It is totally abstract but I recognised it immediately.
Indeed it really seems like a magical mystical place - glad you could share it with us.
Lovely with a waterfall of light falling into the canyon.
