Uff there's a real marmite feeling to these images. I like the water patterns and colours but I'm finding the smaller bits of dust and markings on the glass/surface distracting. The first one keeps the distracting stuff away from the central areas while the second has nicer water circles but more distracting darker areas.

First attempts but see where you're coming from. Thanks for the feedback. 👍
I used Pixelshift on both and it does have a habit of picking up any extraneous stuff unless you have a clinically clean environment.

This one will drive you completely nuts!

I like the experimental, abstract nature of them.

I could see something of this style as large wallart in a modern house.

Thumbs up!

The third one is actually a tiny bit easier on the eyes due to the pinkish tones in the centre. I've managed to spot a fingerprint on the left so that's got me triggered now though!

Edit: The third being a little bit softer does take away from the interesting circle patterns though.

In the pink bubble? Not a fingerprint

Bizarre, Robbie. (And bizarre is pretty darn cool, in my opinion.)

Like the abstract approach to colour and shape - really nicely done

It's funny really, it's a simple setup, not everyone's cup of tea I realise but I enjoyed dabbling with the experimentation and will probably do more. I can see room for improvement for sure but I've taken a total of 9 shots in total and 3 / 4 are usable enough to show off. 1 is probably a bit too detailed, 2 is there or there abouts ref how much detail I want to show and 3 is adding a couple of different elements to bounce the light
It's a rabbit hole you can disappear for quite a while I expect.
Thanks all for your observations, appreciated.

There's a future in this experiment for sure. OK it's visual fun but so what? The results are for enjoying!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
