I drew some tiny cards and put them on a mirror ball. Crop. Ran topaz to brighten colors, blended on screen mode.

The hanged man is from Tarot. So is the Cup.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hmmm...the main problem for me here is less the concept and more the execution. The high ISO is super-visible and where the mirror ball catches the light directly, it lools like a blank card. The drawings on the cards are a good idea though I honestly don't know where the hanged figure fits in...the joker, maybe? :-)

Feel free to PM me

I admit. I was a bit hasty. :)

Bad shuffle and I'm sad to say a bad photograph. Better luck next time 3.

I enjoy the effort put forth, very nice drawings for a scale so tiny. It would've been easier to print off some tiny cards. In post process i would've adjusted the saturation a little bit. I get the idea but its not a very successful one, I feel like you went with the first thing that came to mind and stuck to it, a different card/discoball situation may have been more successful.

I see someone took Posthumous up on his suggestion of making your own cards (unless this IS Posthumous' image.)
Amusing :)

To be completely honest, I'm not at all sure what this is about or even what the point is. Image seems overly grainy with over driven color. That maybe the effect of the tiles, but the color spots are distracting and the cards don't make any sense to me.
