Francis, I find these images very appealing as impressionistic photographic works of art.
They would look very good on any wall.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Francis,

I concur with Joe's comments above - it's a hugely appealing and intriguing set that works exceptionally well for me.

My only comment (and it's not a negative one) is that, like Roger Rex's Sand Dune set recently, I suspect that these would have even more impact printed on art paper and hung/viewed at the appropriate distance under good gallery lighting.

I can't choose a single image over any of the others - they are just lovely, well crafted pieces of work.

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Such images, I have found, that depart from "regular" images tend to elicit disfavor from most viewers but the viewers, in this case Jozioau and owenn01 and me, that do like them, like them a lot. I have recently begun experimenting with multiple exposures and, for me, not necessarily for you or others, I have found it very hard to get a natural subject, like your tree image, to work for me satisfactorily. Thus, I think the first two are spectacular and the last one not so much. Keep in mind Edward Weston's admonition: "All critics do is psycho-analyze themselves." No matter the response here I applaud you stretching photography a bit and urge you to keep it up; I'd like to see more. Very inspirational.

Very inspirational indeed francis, even though I don't see myself developing in this direction I like these images a lot and applaud your inventiveness to produce them.

Like Roger I especially like the first two, the third with the tree is my least favourite.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Well done. #3 is my favorite too.
a6500 & some nice e-mount lenses. Be fond of photography - this is the way to alleviate stress

thanks for the visits and comments

Jozioau,Owenn, Roger, Pegelli, Aavo.

It is not easy to manage images and transform them so much as to be pleasing.
Roger knows better than me
The problem is the digital .. (double, triple exposures) .pur having available programs that simulate the old film does not reach the result.
trying does not cost anything
at least I learn the photo editing program

yes, Roger the elaborations derive from photos
but I do not have a method, it is important to work them a little at a time in the 90% empty.

out of curiosity you place a high point of my work



best regards francis

To me these look interesting and intriguing, very creative. Not per se beautiful or pleasing to the eye, but more pleasing to the mind. Which is even more difficult to achieve, so hats off Francis .

#1 and #2 are fantastic, so calming, specially #2. This image is all about mood. I would personally increase a bit of highlights of the building.

This last image is truly exceptional - a story told to be interpreted by the viewer, a mirror to look into. What's happening, why, a puzzle to be solved? Wonderful.
