To the best of my understanding and opinion: Human learning is not just data pattern matching, but to "intelligently" process them to "understand" and "respond" , there is an element of "emotion", Now, so far, as on this day, Artificial Intelligence is pattern match and make decisions on the match and extrapolate "intelligence" to make it appear intelligent. The response is an action by AI, but to "respond" with "emotion" and "understanding" is still far away. Eventually, this could happen, we would have a emotionally wired robot. Coming to this image, this is not what we both had in our mind, few years back when we discussed the "blend". Surely not even close enough, to my mind. The algorithms by Harish Narayanan are his intelligence ? or is it an intelligence factor learnt by his lending of "match" , I'm lost thinking in this line. While being in developing algorithms world for over two decades has given some intelligence to me to understand new algorithms, I failed to understand this Deep Learning, MY INTELLIGENCE failure? So be it, but, but, this is a step in getting heterogeneous "styles" blended with content ? I think, these are our deep learning on new ways of creative work, but, can we give away creative thinking to technology? I have questions and questions, have not found answers, will keep trying. -RD

Stunning forms n texture in nature, amazingly composed. I feel, controlling exposure to have details in highlights may help enrich further. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing forms n incredible details, Raj. I guess, bringing out details also flattens n push towards abstraction!(?) Regards.

A very fine image, Snehal. I think over exposure works well to bring out flowers in the shaded region.

Intriguing. Little like printings done with woodblocks. Effectful contrast colors, but there is also something with the direction of the fishes contra the grass. The white shining small spot on the upper right corner is little disturbing.

1 mama + 4 kids = 5 is correct! The ironical with this picture is that is taken at Schloß Benrath - a place that is seen as very beautiful! It is a "summer castle" and a park in Rokoko-style which was very popular among the rich noblesse in the 1800-century. The park is full with flowers arrangements, but this family had chosen the water trench around the area.

A beautiful detail found. Maybe you could increase Highlight little. I like the titel "untitled" which does not give me a direction of what I am seeing - now I have to decide myself!

The serie is very nice and it is hard to say which picture is best. I would say they are even better when working together as a serie! If you will continue on the project I will suggest to leave out the car details on some pictures, but not all of them. I must say I like those "disturbing" details.

Lovely, Gaurav. Esp like those glowing leaves n apt backdrop to fill the space. Just a small concern .. I have noticed that you post almost all images in this 'Nature as Photo Art' gallery. Kindly note that many of your images can be / will be seen artistic, regardless of the gallery they are posted in. This 'Nature as Photo Art' gallery is specially made for multi-exposure, stitched, blended, manipulated images and/or whose impact is much due to aggressive post-processing, no matter they are artistic or not. So kindly do the needful in matter, if you feel comfortable. Thank you n regards.

RD, sure, we will discuss this further. We need to explore what “human learning” really is and contrast that with deep learning. We also need to understand the role of “learning” in “new”/“creative” work. For now let me share a TED talk and a concert, of course authored by AI/deep learning. I do think every life form in Nature has an ability to do some thing “new” without being trained. It can smile/be happy/sad without being trained. We all are born with differently coded genes which are not learned. This definitely adds to newer untrained part of the works. That is a wonderful thing which human creations can’t mimic. That said, if we just talk about “creativity” as something which appears like “pleasing” and incrementally “new” and has the baggage of “learning” from others‘ prior works or learning from schools/teachers then the boundaries are melting slowly! If you look at the generated image above carefully, no amount of tweaking the “photo merge” in photoshop can result in the newly generated pattern. There is no trace of tree left. The pattern however is influenced/learned/inspired by the curves of the branches and it appears “new” and unguided. One might argue that there is no relatable “human emotion” in these process of “new” creations. That would however also leaves us in the domain of individual taste and subjectivity. If 5 out of 10 novice listeners can’t make out whether these music shared in these links below are computer created then we may need to rethink about the notion of “creativity”. Probably the video/music below reinforce that better. [youtube:w6i1ihj1]wYb3Wimn01s[/youtube:w6i1ihj1] [youtube:w6i1ihj1]H6Z2n7BhMPY[/youtube:w6i1ihj1]
