There is a black outline around the iris of everyone's eye. If you did change a channel that outline would still be black.

Thanks for the great comments everyone. I hope I cleared up any confusion over the process I took.
10/21/2002 02:40:00 PM
Anarchos, the equivalent functionality exists in the Gimp. Zeissman, color contacts would create this sharp outline as they would not match the color of the rest of the eye. Greenem2, impressive work!

Can you do this with out photoshop?
10/21/2002 01:37:00 PM
I should say "sorry" for wording the first post rudely, and you did reply to my comment on your photo the first time.

If this were really done legally, you do know some tricks. I still am bothered by sharp line around the red in the eye.

There is nothing wrong with Desat. or adjusting one channel, that is just like adjusting the color, but I do not understand the uneven outline around the eye, or how it looks layers. A step-by-step, how'd they do that would be quite insightful I think.
10/21/2002 03:41:00 AM
nice finish greenem! i love this.
10/21/2002 02:45:00 AM
It is changing the whole image...all blue in the image.
10/21/2002 02:41:00 AM
Isn't desaturation and adjust BLUE channel in violation of spot editing? I mean, you are only changing one aspect of the color spectrum, not the whole image as with RGB curves adjustment (to all colors).... just wondering how the rules are supposed to work :)
10/21/2002 01:47:00 AM
First of all, I e-mailed you a description of my steps during the voting, and desaturation was only TWO STEPS out of SIX or SEVEN. I'll post my original tomorrow for all to look at, but for now here are the basic steps (which you DID recieve):

(first of all I was wearing blue contacts)
Curves (blue channel, to boost the eye color)
Desaturate all colors but blue
Change blue hue to red, adjusting saturation & lightness also
Desaturate all colors but red, boost red saturation
Curve adjustments, unsharp mask, etc. (nothing to do with the eye)
10/21/2002 01:22:00 AM
I will not believe that this was legally edited until I have learned how, which I have asked for, but did not recieve. A desaturation would not give this affect.

Ohhhhh. . . .He looks REALLY angry! Nicely done.
10/20/2002 09:05:00 PM
Excellent! Personally I love photo's of this kind where one colour sticks out. And in this case it's not just a cheap effect but serves the purpose of the photo. Composition, lighting and focus (well chosen DOF) are also very good. I guess many will gripe about the "overexposure". It's not! It adds to the stark expression. I especially like the wrinkles which express the emotion perfectly. This is one of my favourite photos this week. Good job! -stephan

So tell us, what loophole did you find in the rules...
I'm giving this a high vote because I like it, but it still seems edited is some way, even though the judges validated it. So what's your secret methods??

Beautifully done, strong composition, striking red eye, a clever use of post processing to enhance image impact.

Interesting idea.
10/17/2002 01:36:00 AM
nice composition. that red eye sure looks freaky! ~mcmurma
10/17/2002 12:13:00 AM
Very interesting picture, I would like to know how you did this!
10/16/2002 11:00:00 PM
I must give you credit. Like the texture of the skin coming through so cleanly
10/16/2002 07:10:00 PM
Very nice effect, and where able to transmit the emotion very good. The wrath is there!
10/16/2002 06:03:00 PM
i really dig this photo, but i also really would like to hear how you did it because it is driving me nuts! :) ! please email me! the framing and composition are awesome and the slight grainess works really well. 9--alecia

Cool pic.
10/16/2002 01:32:00 PM
Love it. Anxious to learn how you did it.
10/16/2002 12:14:00 AM
Cool image. The detail of the skin on the nose and forehead and in the eye almost makes it look like a Roy Lichtenstein image :) And actually, when you think about, very big emotions tend to become cartoonish, almost a caricature :) Good composition and great choice of cropping. I think I know you well :) 8 Journey

10/15/2002 10:05:00 PM
Very effective photo. An attention catcher.
10/15/2002 03:09:00 PM
yeah, how..."contacts"?
10/15/2002 02:15:00 PM
How did you do that LEGALLY????? :)
10/15/2002 03:32:00 AM
Excellent work... Whatever method you used to create this effect is definitely a strong one. The sense of 'wrath' is appealing in this photo :) = 10 - setzler

Do tell after the challenge. I would like to know how this was accomplished.
10/14/2002 07:41:00 PM
I have to know how you did this legally! Great!
10/14/2002 06:23:00 PM
Congrats on the Admin note. Great job. I am asuming that this is a red contact or film that has been cut and worn like a contact? I am not usually one for harsh lighting, but in this case, it works very nicely. Wrath is a good chioce for the challenge, in my opinion. You have done an excelent job of portraying it here. Angle and framing are excelent. Lighting is perfect. Great shot. Good luck in the challenge. ~hbunch7187~

The defined line around the eye bothers me. I would really like to know how you acheived this legally. Zeissman
10/14/2002 05:07:00 PM
Great shot for wrath! Nice composition and the red eye suits subject matter perfectly. Maybe a 'tad' too blown on a bit of the nose. 9 Lisa

Can't wait to find out how this was done! 9
10/14/2002 03:13:00 PM
Very cool, but unnerving. :) I like the composition, and the contrast of the red with the other tones. karmat
10/14/2002 02:09:00 PM
A simple idea, but executed effectively and with style - the tight cropping of the compostition makes it hard to look away.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/14/2002 09:39:00 AM
Very.....wrathful looking. I have no idea how you did this, but it is very good. 8
10/14/2002 08:34:00 AM
Is this type of (apparant) manipulation allowed? Would have been a good photo even without the red tint.
10/14/2002 05:01:00 AM
I like it. Good job. CONGRATS to you!!!! Justine
10/14/2002 03:15:00 AM
Woah, mean looking!!!! The type of thing that spot edit would make soo much nicer. Good job anyways.
10/14/2002 01:34:00 AM
Awesome ! Shiiizzzam
10/14/2002 01:23:00 AM
Cool! I like the composition. The blown out areas on the nose and forehead bother me a little, but great PSing. ~indigo997
