Long Forgotten

Long Forgotten by douglasR

Love this - wish it was mine!! Smile

Oo-er, missus

Oo-er, missus by chairman_bill

A superbly caught expression Grin Beautifully processed, too!


Evolution by Reliant

For something that's almost dead and done, it's incredibly beautiful Smile
I really like the way you've presented it as well - very elegant.

Background Annoying or Creative?

Background Annoying or Creative? by carper123

Does it work with the background at the current level of blur? Yes Smile
Does it also work without the background boat and the same level of blur? Yes as well Grin

It's one of those images that's actually fine exactly as it is, but could also be presented without the boat in the background or alternatively as a square mono version. In theory, the background boat could be a bit more vague, but in a way it adds a context and a counterpoint to the (superbly sharp) hull in the foreground. The details in the hull are so beautiful and clear that I'm finding myself exploring the textures and shapes of that, and not really worrying about the background at all.

However, in the interests of the critique gallery, I've done you two mods - mod 1 is where I've removed the background boat completely (not the best clone job, but it's only illustrative) and mod 2 is a square mono from my mod 1.

Sorry if I sound a bit vague on the "is it distracting?/isn't it distracting?" front, but like I said it actually works well exactly as it is currently.

A superb piece of work Smile


Movement by markst33

I'm a sucker for this kind of abstracted normality anyway, so I love it Smile As John says above, the 'normal' direction of the movement is either horizontal or vertical, so the fact that you've gone diagonally is different and I like the result. Although I like the long upright format of your original above, I also think that Keith's mod makes more of the image in some ways. It's almost, but not quite, square and I think that suits the image very well indeed.

This is the kind of thing I'd have on my wall ... it's a dreamer's image. It's not meant to replicate reality; it's there to allow the brain to unhinge the imagination, and go trippin' off down the woodland path of abnormality Grin


Looking at the stars

Looking at the stars by Paree

I love the way the expressions of both your son and your cat are so similar Grin Both wistful and thoughtful, both probably thinking completely different things (beer vs mouse, that kind of thing ...).

Good quote, too Smile


Help !!

Help !! by KDC

The cyborg is absolutely ace Smile
The monster is good, and also slightly comical ... nothing wrong with that, though. However, I never thought I'd see a monster with fillings!!!
That's one brave dentist, is all I can say Grin

The City Below

The City Below by martinda46

It is a very pleasing scene, and I love the bright colour accents on the buildings themselves. I really like the feeling of an isolated city in the midst of what looks like a jungle (?). As such, as much as I think that cropping some of that sky as John (Dudler) has done and Keith has reiterated, I wanted to go the other way entirely and crop up from the bottom to remove some of the trees and actually add some sky back in Smile

My reason for going this route is that I wanted to really enhance the feeling of isolation and impending danger through a tropical storm, and the lack of awareness of the humans in the city below the maelstrom of Nature's force. Maybe a bit dramatic, but an image like this one here of yours does lend itself to that treatment in many ways.

So as well as cropping the bottom, adding some space at the top and content-filling it to give more drama to the sky, I also adjusted the colouration a bit too. I took some of the saturated colours out with reducing Vibrance (rather than Saturation) and added some muddy, dark orangy/grey light, which I then reduced the opacity of, and used a layer mask to bring back some of the 'normal' light in the buildings themselves.

Hopefully, even if you don't like my mod, it gives a flavour of how simple things like lighting can really alter the feel of an image Smile

"wot (you) lookin' at?" #2 by whatriveristhis

Well, you've certainly beefed up the processing a bit, haven't ya? Grin
I'm slightly cowed by your brilliance Grin Grin
Even though it could be a load of bull Grin Grin Grin

Ah, what the heck ... it's udderly amazing, as usual. I expected nothing less.


Can't see the Fog on the Tyne....

Can't see the Fog on the Tyne.... by NDODS

That's one stunning night time cityscape, Nathan! Beautifully photographed, but also incredibly atmospheric with the subdued tones Smile

Train to PDX: Shastina Cone & Mt. Shasta

Train to PDX: Shastina Cone & Mt. Shasta by knottone1

I think this is really effective. Some people may not like the reflection nor the fact that it's not a 'static', traditional landscape type image, but I do. I like the transient feeling of passing beauty in the landscape - there one moment, gone the next ...

Dave - thank you and you're welcome Smile


Added Date: 04/06/2015 - 12:04 PM

Thought I'd have a peek at what else you do when not on max strength cold and flu medication and 'atmospheric' music ... Grin
Glad I did - you do stunning landscape work!

Thank you Georgina Smile


Added Date: 13/04/2015 - 11:19 AM

Wow, what a portfolio! Inspiring work and I've thoroughly enjoyed having a bimble through it Grin


Added Date: 02/04/2015 - 3:49 PM

Your portfolio's developing rather nicely here Grin I'm thoroughly enjoying what you've done so far, and looking forward to seeing more.


Added Date: 20/03/2015 - 5:22 PM

I don't think I've actually looked through your portfolio before ... glad I have now, though. I think that you have an amazingly eclectic, bizzare and wonderfully twisted mind. Even better, you've also got the processing and manipulation skills to go along with that imagination.

It's a visual smorgasbord, with a little bit for everyone and a massive dollop of appeal Grin


Added Date: 25/02/2015 - 3:59 PM

I can't believe I've never actually left a comment on your portfolio, saying just how much I like your work! Bonkers ... thought I had, but just 'viewed all' and obviously not ...
So - your stuff is achingly wonderful and I hate you (only kidding on that bit).

Your creative art is so inspirational and beautiful Smile



Added Date: 19/02/2015 - 2:49 PM

Aw, thanks Joe! That's really kind of you Smile


Added Date: 07/01/2015 - 10:21 AM

I've got to say, I love the way you process your images Smile There's a wonderful sense of the primeval about a lot of your shots that I find very appealing indeed. I loved the Bellever Forest image in particular. It's a fantastic portfolio of imagery that is a pleasure to view.


Added Date: 04/11/2014 - 8:45 PM

I've finally found time to look through your images properly, and I can't believe I've never commented on your portfolio before! Stupid me Grin What a treasure trove of creativity, weirdness and soulful imagery. I am in awe. I love the way the story starts way back at the beginning and it's really interesting to see how the style changes and evolves over time. A truly stunning, inspiring and jaw-dropping collection of images.

Apologies Alan - hadn't realised you'd commented on my PF! Anyway, I'd guess Adams came first ... born in 1902, whereas Gordin was born in 1946 ... Mind you, I think Ansel Adams' way of expressing the quote is a little more down to earth Grin


Added Date: 10/09/2014 - 4:57 PM

You certainly don't make it easy to choose a favourite out of your images, do you!? Grin They're all beautifully done and a pleasure to view - your 'camera-craft' is very good too Smile


Added Date: 29/08/2014 - 10:18 AM

Some wonderfully whacky stuff you've got here - love it Grin


Added Date: 05/08/2014 - 5:00 PM

I don't know how I've missed your portfolio Sad But now that I have looked through it, it's an absolute visual treat Smile


Added Date: 01/07/2014 - 2:29 PM

I know I've looked at your imagery before, and voted/commented on some of them. But as my head and imagination gets more into trying digital compositing, I'm finding that your work (among several excellent digital composition artists on here) is becoming more inspirational to me. It's very well done; it's thought provoking and it demands that the viewer sometimes examines their own prejudices and thought process in order to understand the images. Some I don't get, others I get immediately, and the rest of the time I'm just enjoying the visual journey to understanding Smile

Superb stuff Grin
