Do you call this art?       ©2019 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       2nd place, 108 points
1/2000s, f5.6, ISO 200, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Processed in Lightroom and Nik SilverEfex Pro. Obviously converted to monotone. Global adjustments to highlights, shadows, contrast, clarity, and slight vignette       Extra Info: This is a recently installed modern art sculpture. Scratching my head over the artists intent or inspiration. Looks random to me.

    I think you did a better job of creating a work of art than the artist did. Congratulations.

    I liked the way you transmitted your opinion of the art in the photo.

    Like the composition and mood, but a different angle might show the three-dimensional quality of the sculpture better.

    I'm guessing the inspiration was money. Looks pretty sterile to me. Good pick for this challenge though.

    I donīt always understand nowadays art. The picture i well composed and the sharpness is good.

    I'm with you. As much as I like many different forms of art, including abstracts, there are some that leave me wondering if I missed something. One thing for sure, your photograph and the post processing you used have turned this into a work of art.

    I stopped questioning art. My sister is a successful artist and we see things in very different ways. My parents are perplexed about how they produced an artist and an engineer.

Anyway, I like this photo, nice effect and well presented. The "strangeness" comes through.

    Well photographed picture of modern art. Love the clouds and the sepia treatment. However, art is in the eye of the beholder and I am not sure that this completely qualifies as strange behavior. Obviously the artist and at lest the curator thought that this sculpture was perfectly normal.

    I'd say who cares about the artist's intent... it looks like an interesting series of shapes and forms, and gives a great picture of 'art vs nature'

Great sky and a nicely balanced image (good choice to avoid a closer crop)

Interested in your choice of toning - I like it and would be good to see the original in outtakes. (I never think of using a sepia tint, so am interested in your thinking)
