Mordor

A lathe to make stands
Miniatures painted well
BattleLore Agincourt

A fractal behind
blended light as a sunset
strong saturation
agincourtS.jpg
but now it changes
trying for depth and magic
a darker style suits
agincourtS2.jpg
but we play evermore
such things can never be left
further and further
agincourtS3.jpg
it must sink to ruin
stealing detail and the real
leave an impression

Beautiful and mysterious, without your clues, I would not know whether I’m looking at a world very large, very small, or somewhere in the middle.

I have never had a lesson in image processing delivered in verse. You walk us through the shifting light in beautiful poetry. Thank you.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Piet, I quickly confess these are way beyond me. I don't pretend to understand the players or script. From a visual perspective, however, if these were mine, I would switch images 3 and 4 but leave the haikus where they are.

Are these computer creations? Actual miniatures in your home? Something from a website? Not that knowing would reveal anything to me, anyway. Just curious.

I am a pedant with regard to the use of farther and further. Farther is for physical distance, further is for argument or discussion. Not sure which you intended, maybe neither, maybe both.

But disregard that.

thank you Paula, I don't know about the poetry, but I will say that it forces one to use fewer words, to be more concise.

hi Matt, I appreciate the distinction between farther and further. Further sounds cooler, Farther is what I meant - now I know!

The miniatures are mine, I painted and mounted them, most of them are from the game BattleLore. I glued the minis onto blocks of wood and placed them on the game board and snapped an image. The background is a fractal that I created when I was into fractals. They are very organic and realistic to life (to me anyway).. I felt they looked like mountains or castle walls or such and thus seemed perfect background for a helter-skelter battle scene.

About image three vs four, four was the last one, but I gather/think you preferred the look of three as the finished item. Note to me, the last probably has too much saturation. But the last if you zoom in has the least original pixels and is the most smeared.
