funnyest shot ever :)

If it does ok I will comment more :)

3 different layers of the picture with 2 adjustment layers.
A lot of stuff.

---------------

Me and russi where going on a small phototrip to the south of Iceland. While driving out of town we saw this window frame by the garbage on a house that was being renovated so we took it with us.

When we saw this church russi wanted to take some shots so he tried his stuff and I did mine.

I used for this some different tihngs. A couple of adjustment layers of curves, channel mixers and layers and masked the outside and inside of the window for each layer so I worked the inside and outside on their own.

Really happy with this shot and I love seeing that I ended this high!

Thanx for everything. I will uppload this as a print later today.

From the Critique Club:

Here is an excellent example of taking an ordinary scene and making one that pops using a simple prop and some decent post processing. If I saw this shot in a challenge normally, without the frame added, I would have never have given it a second glance. By adding the simple prop and making the scene within the scene brighter, you have added interest to the scene and you have given the eye somewhere to land. Nicely done!

Yours
TC

Thanx a lot for all your comments, I was hoping for a t10 for this but a 14'th place is for me very good :)

Ótrúlega fríkuð og flott mynd. Hissa að hún skildi ekki komast hærra. 14. sæti er samt ekki sem verst. Til hamingju með það.

nice selective desat. Mountain peaks seem a bit to sharp. GL

Selective desat has made the coloured area look too much like a cartoon here and strikes me as completely gratuitous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 05:53:07 PM
fancy desaturation here, its like double desat, i like the affect
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Like the idea heaps, gave this an 8 and wouldn´t be surprised to see this in the top 5 tomorrow. Should have cloned out that dust spot in the upper right corner though, not that affected my grade though :) 8 from me.

I thought that this would be more interesting when I saw the thumbnail. I like the concept of the selective desat, but something about it here doesn't seem to work. I think it would've been more effective if only the church's colors ahd remained. I think it's the colored landscape that I am stumbling on.

It's almost like the frame doesn't fit with the perspective. I'd trying angleing it more?

Well executed!

Definately meets the challenge, your subject is obvious, love how you made the window not only frame the subject but add color too it. Well don

Beautifl scenery. Interesting idea to put the framed picture in. I like the original so much I find the frame in the way.

Nice use of colours and great contrast between them. Well done

beautiful! one of my top 10 picks in this challenge! good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 12:56:07 PM
I like this one, but I would like to have seen a little tighter crop. Perhaps pulling about 1/5th off the right and 1/10th off the bottom, thus getting the fram closer to the lower left corner. Nice toning and crisp focus, and nice exposure overall with all the various elements.

Now this is going to get a ribbon for sure! I'm looking forward to reading how you did this, VERY original and VERY well done. See you on the front page!!

This would make a killer black and white even without the window frame in it.

This is nice and it pops like a dpc winner. I think the composition feels a bit uneasy, but I'm not sure. Great work!!

nice job on this one. I like the heavy contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 09:19:54 PM
Nice idea although I would have loved to see this with a more menacing looking sky outside of the framed area.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

04/25/2006 07:22:13 PM
Good idea an dgood use of advanced editing. I would like to have seen even more contrast with the area in the frame but one of my favourites still

Great idea, well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 02:38:10 PM
Very cool and creative shot. I would have preferred to see a tad more desaturation outside of the fram eto really make the subject pop. Nice shot nonetheless... I vote 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 01:21:54 PM
excellent use of colour and saturation...really adds a nice touch to the image. More unique than having the rest of the image in B&W. Well done

Good idea. This would have worked better for me had the sky been desat a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 11:37:17 AM
I really like the idea. It would have been even more powerful with a tighter crop I think.

An elegant image, if a cliche.

haha. Wonderful title, I enjoy the selective destaturation... one of the stronger pictures I have voted on... so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I just keep staring at this. It's really imaginative and touching. I don't know. Can't put it into words. It isn't the church... I don't know. I just know it deserves an 8
