Kaleidoskope - Nature Series

A series of kaleidoskopic images. These with a nature images.

I've been playing around with Photoshop, trying to find ways to create those reflecting, kaleidoskopic images without manually resizing and rotating images. This was eventually achieved by using embedded images - there is an origin file, one that is cropped to a triangle, one that reflects the first triangle and the final image, which combines the triangles in a hexagon. Voilá, now I only needed to swap the origin image and the final file would update. This enabled me to play around with many different source images. In a second step, I combined two images with different scales and even added some transparency.

This is the "Nature" series.

Nature is tricky for reflective images. Many nature pictures are nice in themselves and gain little from reflecting. But some work. Here they are.

Kaleidoskope - Nature I

Water droplets and flower details.

Kaleidoskope - Nature II

Really cool with the deep shades between the trees!

Kaleidoskope - Nature III

Insects are fun, they might feature more.
