Location: firetrail where i live
Date: Apr 17, 2007

Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Rural, Digital Art
Date Uploaded: Apr 17, 2007

this is another one of my challenge entries that probably wont appeal to most dpc voters, but i grew quite fond of it during its creation !!...
it's a composite of two photographs taken on the firetrail where i live .. the sun's rays are hightlighted by the mist coming thru the trees ... camera settings are for the closer more silhouetted image .. the other photograph only differed in shutter speed which was 1/40 sec ...
these are the two unedited photographs ..
502741.jpg 502742.jpg

this is an extremely abbreviated version of my processing which took me in lot of different directions that ended up not working for me, so i cant remember all my steps ...
i opened both photographs in RAW and made them a bit more blue ...
in CS2 i overlayed one photograph over the other, opacity something or other ... flattened ... increased canvas size to accomodate another layer, then duplicated new background layer and flipped vertically .. did a flaming pear flood on one layer after scaling the unflipped and flipped images, then skewed flooded layer ... flattened and then increased canvas size a lot wider and then re-scaled image to fit ... did levels to lighten ... resized, reduced noise, small amount of selective sharpen, selectively saturated the green leaves, border, convert to profile sRGB, saved for web ..
PRINT HAS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT DIMENSION TO CHALLENGE ENTRY ALSO NO BORDER, MORE CONTRASTY & ADDED ROZ LOGO .

Very nice Roz. I like the blues and the rays of light. The shimmering water is very striking. You have a good eye for this kind of photography.

Sorry but I can´t really make out what I am watching even and I have never been a fan of abstract work so this got a 3 from me. Keep in mind that this is just my personal preference so feel free to ignore me.

I love this sort of shot, I have done many and even got I ribbon on one that was a rather abstract nature. I wish you the best, I love it.

this looks interesting, nice light and colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2007 07:59:21 PM
This is the first one I've seen that looks like it really took advantage of the editing rules. It doesn't look over processed to me, though. More intriguing with the lightplay and shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2007 05:06:59 PM
the colors are beutiful. however the lines created by the branches are unappealing. they get in the way of the true landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting effect - quite an ethereal image. Colours work well.

It is a very interesting picture with beautiful colors and nice composition. It presents very stretched interpretation of "Landscape" theme, but I like it.(8)
