I was going to post this as a single image, and then I thought I'd post it in 2x1 format; i.e. mirrored, and then I tried this version. I also made a 4x4 version, but it did seem a bit over the top. I know this won't be to everyone's taste, but I fancied a change ;-)

I bet your hair is on end after shooting this one! Nice break from the norm, square works well, very graphic. My site is down tonight ;-( technical fault apparently.

High impact and very graphic. I like it.

Nice, Dave Gorman-esque

Very cool colours and real nice abstract! :) Sometimes it's fun to play with your images ;)

Wow! Love it.

The sharp, yellow zig-zags scream high-voltage electricity. Good idea for the subject.

That's a nice shot. Could look really cool as a black and white as well.

Please check out http://www.fotografiker.se/index.php?showimage=27 - I did a similar shot of a power-pylon.

I think it's rather good. The lines and angles going off in all directions make for quite a dynamic image. The screaming yellow is a real eye-catcher.

Great! Sharp, crisp,very multi dimensional et tres tres Pompidou ;-). Should be fab on a big wall with other's in different colour schemes to keep this one company. Stay off the drugs!

I don't understand what the fuss is about. This is the kind of image a teenager does when they're just learning about photography. Anyone can mess around in Photoshop...

....not being mean, but that is what I think.

I love the Kaleidoscope effect of the pattern in this image

Thanks all.

wilshire: I've devoted my life to messing around in Photoshop ;-) Well, a significant portion of it at least :-)

comment by wilshire at 11:14 PM (GMT) on 22 October, 2007

Well, so do teenagers djn1!
- and some of them are pretty good at it.

"wilshire: lets see some of yours?"

What's that got to do with anything?
