An encouraging idea, especially for older people like me!
That aside I love your image. I can see where you are coming from and maybe where I'm going.
The picture tells a story.
Good one,
No data shown nor explanation of techniques.
regards
Ian

This was taken by my old camera before I had the K30 so I am not sure what the settings were other then it was on AVG.

Is it worth becoming an E2 member please?

Well constructed picture, Louise.
It looks like me as I come out of the bedroom in the morning (not).

Information on the advantages of joining E2 is available at the top of the page.

Would have expected to see fire and brimstone! Nice to be so certain. A good idea but a bit too intense I think. Needed toning down just a bit to give more surroundings and less flare.

The E2 thing. You could only try. I was put on the free trial last year without requesting it and found some of the features didn't work well on my tablet due to screen size issues. Depends on your screen resolution and settings.

None of that in the spirit world. Expect to see brighter colours you never experienced before and it never ever gets dark, also you don't need to eat or drink. To get to somewhere you just think about it and your there. Grin

I like the effect Louise but for me there a bit too much blue. I have created a MOD in this I reduced the cyan and blue saturation then increased the master saturation for all the colours this has brought out more of the reds and other colours and I think it gives a better balance without detracting from the overall effect.

What do you think?

I realised once my MOD was loaded that it has lost some of the intensity which I'm sure you wanted to keep so I returned to the saturation settings and introduced some lightness to increase the intensity of the white light.

You dont appear to be a regular contributor to the site, so I would think the basic membership should suit you.

E2 has advantages is you use EPZ a lot, and like the ability to upload larger images; and want to upload a series of documentary or before and after images; and it allows you the option to use the critique gallery daily, rather than weekly. So its up to you. The cost is reasonable.


As for the image, no exif info, and its not a"shot" rather a manipulation meant to display a fanciful idea, and for me it falls into the category of preaching, as you answer the question posed with your own beliefs. If you had left it at the question only, it would be open to interpretation.


Regards


Willie

Sorry i didn't mean to preach (amen) do you know where I can get free royalty backgrounds from?

The one I used here doesn't exist any more as they came with Picnic which is now creative kit.

I find this to be a very powerful and engaging image. The highlights are just so strong which makes it a real eye catcher...Exquisite work!
