Comes Daylight Saving Time and the sun begins to light up my apartment wall at sunset. The light from the setting sun will move slowly up and down the wall between now and the end of Daylight Saving Time in the fall. I really like to manipulate these vertical lines of the sunlight cast on the wall along with the scatterings of round droplets of light. It allows me to make use of both Virtual Photographer and Flaming Pear. A simple light and with a few effects that light becomes something magical for me. Flaming Pear brings the form and Virtual Photographer brings the color.


In Flaming Pear (flexify 56,68,3,mirrorball,equi lacquer 57,69,34,9,0,31,0,64,16,96,38) and Virtual Photographer (transparency).

Hello Jan
Very well noticed and captured.
Wonder with how many pixels you upload so far your pictures ?
The strongest point of P C is for me the 1600 pixels with about 1 Mb possebillity.
Try to up load larger.
I do my reducing in PhotoFilre (down to 1200 with mosty max compression, which turns out on aprox. 1 Mb)
Regards, Jan

Having lived a short while in a small dark Bronx apt, I can appreciate the significance of this changing bit of sunlight, brought to life so vividly by your imagination. It does seem to have a life of it's own, which this abstract displays superbly. I'd hang this one on your wall! Well done.

A wonderfully done abstract, Jan. I can envision this large and framed.

I seem to have made a blunder with responding to the comments on my postings. I responded to the emails I was receiving (similar to the process on another online photographic site I belong to) but unfortunately those emails got sent back to Perfectly Captured than to the people to whom I intended them for. And further I had cleared out the messages on my page of Perfectly Captured so I could no longer respond to people's comments from the Perfectly Captured page.


So I would like to thank everyone for their comments and hopefully the emails I sent will go to the rightful people rather than into the circular file.

I have seen Flaming Pear used elsewhere Jan but this certainly is a bold and bright abstract,

David:

Thank you David for viewing and commenting. I appreciate it.


I do an exercise every Spring and Fall... in the Spring with the coming of the light from the setting sun and in Fall when the light from the setting sun disappears from view in my north facing apartment... making use of Flaming Pear and Virtual Photographer (as I said one for form and one for color).


Twenty years of living in this apartment and one would think I would used to the re-occurring pattern of the light from the setting sun appearing and disappearing... but no.

Interesting in the abstract, I like the title.
A good photographer can take the common thing, and transform it into something that transcends space & time..In this you have succeeded very well.
Also appreciate the warmth of the image, cold & wet here right now:)

Very artistic shot with fine graphism. Texture, shapes and details are so well registered. Really nice for the wall.
