Feels peaceful

I cropped a section out of a sockeye salmon photo, turned it vertical (head at bottom) and then expanded the image width. I agree that the result feels peaceful.

Nice, reminds me of Gerhard Richter's work......check it out.

You made my day Anon. The Richter comparison is something I consider a compliment. In my opinion he was unique and his art is hard to define. Here's one of his quotes that gives you a sense of the depth of his craft, "Strange though this may sound, not knowing where one is going, being lost, being a loser, reveals the greatest possible faith and optimism, as against collective security and collective significance. To believe, one must have lost God; to paint, one must have lost art."

The Fish Eye is always watching. No blinking or sleeping, just carefully watching everything around.

New horizons abound in the next riffle up.

In my case you have a "fly dude" who has a degree in fine art. Are you an artist Finn?
