Surreal Abstract Seashell Collage

White seashell collage with lines, on blue background. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Limen (the li- pronounced as in lie), which means the threshold of perception.

This is another seashell creation. I made extra work by accidentally taking the base photo in the wrong format (JPEG instead of raw). At the time I saw what I’d done and took more photos, but of course the wrong version turned out to be a nicer composition.

JPEG isn’t too bad if everything goes well, but the exposure was off slightly. That meant I had to divert some creative energy to artificially rescuing blown highlights. But I got there in the end, and I’m happy with the result.

There’s also a black and white version named Gray Limen.
