Challenge: Nightmares II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd
Location: EHS room 179
Date: Apr 16, 2009
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/90
Date Uploaded: Apr 16, 2009

One of my students shot behind this ugly piece of plastic that is a florescent light cover a while back. It created this cool texture, and I thought it had a bit of a horror flick look to it. So I decided to recreate the shot a bit differently.

I think it is definitely nightmarish. Not sure how it will hold up in the challenge, but I'm thinking it should do okay. We'll see considering I used a point and shoot camera! The original shot was totally bland. I did multiple levels and curves layers and masked certain parts to create the dark effects.
The out of camera original:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/58457/120/782867.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/58457/120/782867.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Excellent. Love this. The colors, the glass layer, the expression. The greenish overall tinge is really effective.

For the claustrophobe, this can be a terrifying prospect. Very well composed and captured. The model is suitably effective. Well done.

Like the texture on the glass and that her fear still translates through it.

good and simple shot, very primal fear and looks like all you needed was a frosted glass door. Great! 7
