Photo Challenge - Week 18: Abstract

This week's challenge from Sally at The Studio Sublime is, I must admit, my least favorite so far - Abstract.


Abstract: the use of a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world.


 I am not at all experienced with my Photoshop Elements. I barely know how it works so I fear my photo is a weak showing. I just cropped my picture and added a effect. I have no story to go with it this week.

It's my meyer lemon tree in bloom. Although I am excited to report that I did also find a little lemon on the tree! It's the first fruit it has grown in my 4 years of babying the tree.




Be sure to check out what I am sure are going to be beautiful works of true art at Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime.

  2. So is it suppose to produce edible lemons? I babied a walnut tree for ten years in SK.. the first three it got run over by the lawn mower... don't think it even had a flower! Her I haven't even tried to plant something that produces something useful.. the deer have enough food!

  5. Wonderful photo! I love the shadows and the effects you created. Your photo has great texture too.

    My husband put photoshop elements on my computer the day before this assignment was due and I fiddled around with it a bit, but learning PE takes a lot of time. I felt my photos did not quite fit the assignment.

    Congratulations on your first lemon!!!!!!

  9. I like the texture effect you chose very much. Looks a lot like an abstract to me! I know what you mean, I struggled too. I almost passed this week. But I'm glad I didn't as I see that many of us had the same reaction :-)

    I would love to have a lemon tree. I don't know that I would be patient enough to wait that long for the first lemon though!
