Stressed Texture
I was reading in the new dgrin challange 101 for Texture. In the read JAG (Joyce) used the description word "stressed" in relation to pushing certain modifications of an image.
Think thats what she meant
What a great word she used to describe what can occur through the levels of various adjustments.
It is of course Perfect I thought radical and such worked fine but I think I'm going to go with stressed from now on Very refined.

From today, I just had to see how stressed I could get it and leave something remaining. Perhaps even worth looking at

Iced Rust


Flipped it over. Maybe better viewed this way. Unsure

Fine work, Michael. My preference is for the second one. Maybe that's because I'm right handed, or am used to reading from left to right. Dunno. I think it would be interesting to hear the reasons other people have for preferring one to the other.

You're a bit of a mystery to me, Michael. You keep a low profile for a spell and then you burst out with some images that are really exceptional....such as these and your recent silhouette shot. Maybe that's the mark of a genius?

The word " stressed " works for me. The treatment of the rust here is terrific. I'll go with the second offering....I'm right-eared and the waves this image puts out, coming from that direction, play up to my strength.

The location of the black hole as something to do with it, I think, my eyes seem to exit the first one but in the second I stay in the image longer.

Yo Rags,

You have to get up to speed, brother. Old Michael is about as strong a RUST JUNKIE as there is. He sits at the number 1 table when we all get together.

"Stressed" indeed--perfect word and perfect shot! I prefer the second one; for some reason, it seems to draw me into the shot while the first one seems to push me out. It is probably as Richard said, that I read left to right so that is the way my eye travels. Well done!

Interesting opinions. I like the first one because it goes up, the second one gives me a sense of vertigo. Just me.

Appreciate your comments Richard. Thanks once again Nice to have those preferences coming in for which orientation works for each and why. Great suggestion that. Think we will all get something out of it.
I know I will be lots more considerate of my preferences before I choose which orientation goes out as a final.

Agreed about the points each person brings to the table. Hear ya when it comes to that vertigo thing, but I am not getting ill this time. Usually I do. Here I get the sense of being above and looking down from way elevated without the unbearable sense of height. The first one gives me that I am looking into a tunnel and in the other it is above and emanating waves radiating out. Or is it the other way around
Illusions are strange things.

Stressed .... interesting word used to push the limits on editing. Is that 'stressed in the person' or 'stressing the image'

The second photo is more calming for my eyes, but I like the 1st one more. To me in the first I'm heading up into a tunnel vs downwards in the 2nd photo.

I like that you thought of "stressed in the person" It is something to consider and like you I did too.

More calming? Really? Cool beans

Am very glad you would give either consideration and that you like it.
