Taken at the famous 'Cloud' sculpture (aka "the bean") in Millenium Park in Chicago. A fun place to play with curves and reflections.

These curves caught my eye on one of my many meandering photo walks around the Living Desert in Palm Desert, California. Then along comes this contest. It seemed a natural fit!

Food coloring abstract

by Nicole Couture-Lord
(Inverary, Ontario)

I've been wanting to take photos of food coloring in water for a long time and finally got around to it in the last 10 days or so. My first experience was "iffy", but the second session was better planned and I knew more about how to go about it though the glass receptacle left a lot to be desired. Air bubbles, thickness of glass all interfered in one way or another. I used Adobe Camera Raw to remove unwanted spots and then lightened it some. I knew what I wanted the final image to look like in a general way, then it was to find the image to do it with. I read up on how to "flip" images and how to use the "mirror montage" in Photoshop and proceeded to produce this shot full of curves. I had fun photographing it then playing around in Photoshop to come up with something that I liked.

Marilyn Monroe Curves

by Theo Tan
(Markham, ON, Canada)

I was walking along Burnhamthorpe in Mississauga and I am fascinated by the the beauty of this building. Lighting condition was ideal, I took several shots from various angles and very pleased with the result. I didn't even notice the aircraft till I processed the image.

The peel from my orange made a nice spiral as it fell away from the fruit.

Crooked Tree

Crooked Tree

Crooked Tree

Taken at the botanical gardens Wellngton New Zealand. The tree was in deep shade so I have lightened a little to emphasis that there are no straight branches. Didn't get the name of it though.

I couldn't see curves when this topic first came out Julie but then saw them everywhere. Not so easy to capture or compose I found.

Cooking Curves

by Hannah L.
(Bay Roberts, NL, Canada)

I wanted to find a really unique and interesting photo for this month's challenge, and I was struggling to find something that hasn't already been photographed a dozen times. For some reason, I was fascinated by the curves atop our propane cookstove, so I "took a shot" literally. It may not be "beautiful" but I think it's definitely different!

There's not much to say about this shot of a baluster except that it is, indeed, curvy.

Kitchen Surprise!!

by Lorna
(Saskatchewan, Canada)

Often the pictures I enjoy most are the unplanned ones that take a simple household task in a new direction...."fun with the camera". Today while cleaning fresh green onions, the curly roots just begged to be my model before they hit the garbage. Needless to say, the green onions took longer to clean than usual!
