I thought these 3 images would work as a series, so have had a go at my first Triptych.

Please would you let me know what you think.

For me, I'm disappointed that I couldn't get the sky in the third shot the same hue as in the first two. I tried using the burn and dodge tools in Elements, but guess I need to learn how to copy skies from one image to another.

Thanks for your time.

Elaine

I like this, - it works for me.

I would perhaps have the sea level with each other in the first two panels, - and maybe have the vertical black dividers narrower, - otherwise a good idea well done.



regards


Willie

Hi Willie,

Yes I can see how the levelling of the sea in the first two panels and reducing the width of the dividers would improve the image - I'll try to achieve that. Thanks for your time.

I'd just like to say Willie that whilst I've had more time I've looked at your portfolio and.......Wow! - you have made some amazing, beautiful images. Something for me to aspire to in my hobby, although I don't feel I'd ever have that indefinable magic touch that some photographers clearly have.

Cheers

Elaine

That's very effective - perhaps line up the horizon and railings on 1 and 2 as Willie suggested, otherwise it works very well indeed. ( I like the way the "undercarriage is" neatly retracted in 3Smile)

Hi Geoff,

I like the way the little feet are tucked in in the 3rd pic too. Wonder if all gulls fly with their feet like this - they probaby do. Just goes to show what a lens can reveal doesn't it.

Cheers

It's a good idea, Elaine, and well executed too. Part of me wants to have another image between the second and third one, where the gull has just taken off, to complete the sequence so to speak. The other part of me likes the number three, so I am divided in thought here. I have done a modification where I took the third image and made the sky as near as possible a match to the other two. I use PaintshopPro. I used the magic wand to select the sky, then chose the flood fill tool to alter its colour, using a low opacity and adding a bit more colour until I was happy with it, and had the other two pictures on the screen while I worked, for comparison. For the colour chosen, I picked a colour from one of the other two....obviously. Whilst I had the picture on screen in editing, I inverted the selection and adjusted levels in the bird's undercarriage because it looked pretty dull once the sky had been changed to more grey and darker. Also, adjusting levels on the bird brought out more of the white, which again corresponds better with the other two pictures.
Pamela.

Hi Pamela,

That sky looks great and the third image looks more in tune with the other two now. Thanks for the detail on how you achieved this, it'll help with my learning.

Adjusting the levels on the bird in the third image makes quite a difference too - I hadn't picked up on the difference n tone before you mentioned it - you've a good eye for detail.

I love the pics in your portfolio - quality!

(I see your interested in Philosphy, I joined a Philosophy Cafe Group a while ago. The last meetings' discussion was the Philosopy of the film the "Matrix" - fascinating theories - this DVD is on the top of my list to watch now!)

Thanks for all your help Pamela

Ommmm

An OK set, and I agree with the comments above. Not sure the third image fits so well with the other two, it is so very different. Would have preferred the full bird I think. Very subjective.
