Weekly Photo Challenge: Patterns


As a photographer who is always interested in nature first, I immediately started thinking about natural patterns which led me to formation flying in geese and this photo taken at the Bosque Del Apache in New Mexico last December.

Nice Pattern - ready for landing

Nice Pattern – ready for landing

But then I thought about what it would look like with this pattern repeated over and over – so, given the magic of photoshop, I made lots of copies of the birds and put them all in formation – a different “pattern”. ย That looked pretty good but then I tried it in B&W and I liked that better……I hope you like my final Pattern.

Snow Geese - Yikes!

    • I almost always like the “natural” photos better also. I just thought it would be fun to expand it (and my photoshop capabilities) for this challenge. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Jeff – If you can ever get to the Bosque during the migration, I’m sure you’d enjoy it as a photographic opportunity!

  14. I love it, so much fun to play in Photoshop… its like a toy in a photographers hand. or should I say an artists hand, because we are artists using the lens as our tool.

    • Lily – I avoided it for a long time but am starting to understand the variety of things that you can do with it. I agree that it is indeed an artists tool.
