Cold River by RavenTepes

Cold River

I appreciate the suggestion. I actually wrestled with the white balance issue for a while before opting to use the blue tinted version. I wanted the picture to convey a sense of "cold", which was the deciding factor. The photo was taken at -9*F/-22.7*C. Perhaps I did over exaggerate the blues though. I did save both versions...

Very nice execution! I really like the perceived concept behind it.

The One She Wanted by RavenTepes

The One She Wanted

Thank you Smile

I bought it as an engagement ring for my (now) fiance. She wanted no gold, and no diamonds. She hinted at this ring, and even talked with it at great length with a sales woman at the jewelry store. So I bought it, brought it home and photographed it.

Yeah...I know...I'm a photographer. That automatically means something's wrong with me. Tongue

I have to admit that I really like how this shot was exposed and processed. The silhouettes of the foreground and mountains work well to frame the rest of the piece. Very well done Smile

I almost disagree with Karen. To me, this screams abstract, on the pretense that it took me a moment to fully understand what it was. Outside of that though, this piece is absolutely brilliant. On first look, I thought it was a B&W, but I saw little bits of colour, which proved me wrong. Very well done!

The Secret Of The Trees by RavenTepes

The Secret Of The Trees

Thank you.

First, edit your base images to your liking. From there, move your overlap image onto your background move it around to where you'd like it. With this picture, I believe I dropped the opacity to where the eyes are then created a level adjustment layer to tweak the woman's face slightly more. By all means, don't be afraid to dodge and burn a little as well.

I used a large sized eraser brush (figure maybe an 1/8th to 1/16 the total image size) , set to 0 hardness and about a 25% opacity, slowly work on the edges in long strokes till you think it's done. Doing it this way, if you think in terms of layers, you'll slowly build up translucency while keeping what you want in tact. With this particular image, I wanted to retain as much as possible whist still giving it the over all feel of a ghostly image.

It can be a time consuming process, but the way I did it gave me the results I was after.

Use this as a starting point, and feel free to tweak it to your heart's content Smile

In The Orb by RavenTepes

In The Orb

Honestly, it was just something fun...personal, I guess you could say. To me, it just kind of summed up our time there together.

Rear by kaybee

Rear

I agree...while granted, the rear is the main focus point, the hands do give the shot a level of balance and fluidity. I personally prefer the original, compared to the edit.

Skin Of The Fallen by RavenTepes

Skin Of The Fallen

Thank you. I was trying something a bit different than what I normally shoot. I still don't have the hang of it just yet, but I'm working on getting closer compositions looking decent.

Malinbeg I

Great shot. It looks like something I would have taken, though in perspective and personal taste, I would have contrasted it a tad more.
