Has the makings of a picture what with the orb and the light behind the woods. Not sure about the car. The bright number plate distracts. Either get rid of the car or darken it maybe?

Thanks, yeah the number plate distracts a lot, the next shot i did the car was much better lit but i don't know how to merge the 2 shots.Only took up photography in june this year, still haven't got a clue with photoshop. It was our 1st go at an orb too, so i was quite pleased for a 1st go. Done a bit more light painting, those pics are on flickr...PicksPics1 if ya want to look at them n comment.

Great start then. You'll soon pick up photoshop and get lots of advice here. Look at the Videos section, I'm sure there'll be an item there on selective adjustments etc.

Welcome to EPZ Simon.


As an experiment in getting an orb effect it works. As a photograph it doesnt really. Apart from the car, it would need some context, like an apparition in the woods or the like to make it interesting. But it does do what you wanted.


Ive loaded a mod with less car and more background/woods.



Hope this helps,


Regards


Willie

Initially effective because it is different but then I think - Why? Not sure about the orb thing - what is the attraction of having a ball of light in an image? Sorry, beats me, but Ido think the car is part of the interest, it's the orb that isn't - for me.
