Several different techniques were used in producing these artistic images. Some people preferred to use camera methods, or simply rotate and crop the image. Others used various methods using software such as Photoshop or Picasa. The aim was to produce something pleasing to the eye which was not a recognisable picture.
Ingrid used an ingenious method of changing the zoom while taking the shot.
Ingrid: An unusual angle or a tight crop can produce very effective pictures
