junk mail transformed into a city scape with a little strategic folding. A black cloth draped in the back creates a night sky, and my sexy floodlight creates the backlighting. Processed with levels, gradient map, curves, brightness/contrast, desaturate, and selective color. Crop, resize, USM.

I can just picture a King Kong and a partially clothed Fay Wray in this.

Proof that junk mail is good for something! I do like the moodiness of this shot, also texture and dof are good.

I like the negative effect, but it is a bit busy for me.

I really like the contrast in this photo. the picture seems a little out of focus for me though.

Like the idea and the grainy / moody look could really work here but I think you've pushed the processing a little too much.

Dark and gritty, but I kind of like it. A little more contrast might have helped.

I really love the jagged and grainy BW look here.

Interesting inversion. Dark, almost Steampunk-ish if you'd added some cogs.

Creative idea, but the conversion to b/w seems overly harsh.

I like the use of different objects for the cityscape, I'm just not so crazy about the post-processing. Interesting to look at the different textures though.

Needs a little rotation CCW - possibly a little underexposed? Nice idea though.

Looks like Bulkville has grown into a Bulktropolis since I last visited there. ;-)
