Mary says: 

Started out with a photo of some metal cylinders that I used the warp tool in PS to stretch and manipulate so that they appeared to be under tension. Pretty straight forward. Put these three together, moving in different directions, for visual tension. Kept thinking something was missing and ended up deciding a snake entwined in the photo would be a neat contrast of organic and inorganic. In my opinion, a venomous water moccasin is always a course of tension.

My husband was taking a photography class in Yosemite National Park and I tagged along. The world famous climbing rock, El Capitan, is on the left. The transparency of the water leads the eye into the photo.

Ricky says:

This is a transparent hanging lamp in the Houston airport Terminal B. I liked all of the various things that are distorted. Not a multiple exposure - just shot as is - sharpened - and added a bit of vibrance. The end.

Ricky says:

With the travel this week, finding that visual tension has been challenging - however, I decided to shoot the supports in the terminal - at an angle - hoping that the weight, support, lines, and tilt, would provide visual tension interest. No matter, this time of day and the ambient light created lovely colors.
