I haven't named this one. I've been looking at the original image for a long time. While details, color and light were good, the comp wasn't. So, I started to play with some other images and got another style of images going when I thought, what about the sucky comp. It had all the underlying items to fin into the new presentation I'm working on. So, what do you think. If I decide to offer this, I would sell it as two prints, however, I combined it here for your critical opinion.

Thanks, Dennis.

Dennis,

 

I really like the PP on it but I am not taken by the comp. I really like the warm colors too.

 

However, that is subject, I am just offering an opinion as requested.  I think it is because I can't readily tell what it is, although I would guess a rock formation of some sort.

 

Best I can offer.

It's unusual for sure. If I tell you what it looks like to me, will it reveal my character flaws? (ink blots) 

The thing about art, (not ART) you have to like it a lot to keep it. I am not into abstract art. You might have done too much PP.

Yeah, I understand. The original image below wasn't what I had hoped for either. I decided to see if I can make a mirrored abstract with it. So I gave it a very bold set of processing and then flip it around. I didn't notice the faces that should up in the marks of the rocks, makes it look like there was some alien faces in the rock. If one doesn't experiment every so often, one never learns to stretch the imagination. Thanks all.

Dennis, I agree with Art.  Also agree with Phil about the ink blots.  :)
