The edge of never

By TanyaH
It's not perfect, but learning is so much fun Grin Grin
Comments, good or bad, are always welcomed.

(The exif says a Canon 10D, but it's picked that up from the ground cover. The woman and the lamp post were taken with a 5D MkII and the sky from a phone camera. I know I shouldn't mix and match but needs must and all that!! Ignore the rest of the exif settings, as they only probably apply to that one 10D image ... Smile)

I'm with Fazzer - a scene that is so bizarre that it really makes one stare and think. Beautifully done however and is worthy of the hours it must have taken to do.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the feedback, definitely appreciated! Grin
I'm still learning with the whole compositing thing but am loving practising techniques. This one was primarily an exercise in blending different scenes and layers - there's things I could have done differently here, or with more finesse, but I'm finding that creating scenes that are a mixture of reality and fantasy is getting the old grey matter working overtime. It gives my imagination somewhere to go Grin

Nicely barmy. Next time put your wellies on.

no idea how you do this but excellent, kind of Japanese horror about it, The Ring, to my mind.

My thoughts, maybe a few ideas for you:-

Portrait or square format to include the whole reflection.
White (sun?) area in sky removed.
Face and expression visible.
Gold of lamps reflected in water.
Less separation between lamp and girl.
Darker overall, with the lamps creating the light.

But did I say how much I like it?

All good points Pamela, and thank you Smile The expression/face part may be hard, as she has very floaty hair and it just kind of falls that way. The white sun bit took me ages with the gaussian blur, but you're right that it's probably too much Grin Lots to think about though.

I think this is definitely one I'm going to revisit or probably redo at some point, as I think it has potential and is a great image to learn on. Glad you like Grin (Maybe I'll put a pair of wellies on her, just for Alan ... Wink)

Well done. What I always have trouble with is getting the person a realistic size to fit the scene and b/g objects. Keep it up, this is good and it's so much fun.
