I think this image has possibilities! The overall yellow cast however rather works against the "ghostly" theme as should perhaps be removed, e.g. by use of the hue/saturation control in the yellow channel.
Also the figure could be made a bit more ghostly by selectively converting to B/W and then blurring. Finally you could sharpen the rest of the scene so as to give more contrast with the figure.
I've uploaded a mod with some if these ideas. Hope you find it of interest and help.
Not sure about the figure. A good idea, but I'm having trouble deciding if the figure should be there at all. That one is open to discussion and I'm on the fence. Possibly straighten up the verticals.
Keeping in perspective the title, i think Franks mod works for me ..on the other hand if the title had anything to do with ghosts then CB's mod i believe is a lot closer to the concept than the original
I like it. The rising cobbled street going into the distance works nicely, and good foreground interest with the bike.
Dont know if you were going for a ghostly shot, but it does look like one.
I think the colouring is appropriate for street lights, with slightly less yellow. I would like to see it sharpen overall, with the vertical distortion caused by the wide angle to be straightened. I would blur the figure more, make him more transparent by cloning the background over him at a very low opacity, and the desaturate him slightly so hes a little grey.
Loaded this is a mod.
Hope it helpd,
Thanks very much Willie, I am going to try your mod also and see how it turns out.
