Tortured Souls

By woolybill1
Detail of the sculpture 'Kathedra' beside the Wear in Durham, suitably enhanced for Hallowe'en.

V2 is the original, unenhanced except for the removal of extraneous graffiti, chewing gum etc . . .
V3 is cropped and slightly re-toned.

An old sculpture with a modern take. V1 has definitely got a sinister look about it Bill.
Great conversion.

Interesting set Bill. I like them in reverse order with version 3 being my favourite.

V3 gets my vote today
The sign of a good manipulation is a good image to start from, just like this one is.

Clever use of colour Bill and a fine result. Scary Oh Yes.

The colour takes that 'ominous presence' away I think. v3 is beautifully sinister.... Animae Damnatae.

As it is Halloween Bill,
I go for the suitably enhanced working here.
Or perhaps it is just because it is in colour !!

I think the processing in version two stands out the most for me here Bill.

Marvellous! I love the strong colour of v1 but grateful of v2 to explain it.

V2 for me, for the detail, can't quite tell what it is from V1.

V2 for me too. I must be too conventional.

This becomes strangely 3D with the colours you have chosen for #1, and I prefer that one for that effect Bill.

I like V1 Bill, it has more visual impact.
V2 for me Bill, all have something going for them but v2 gets my vote.

V1 for me since it is more frightening

31 Oct 2012 10:30PM
Oldgreyheron has noticed it as well, if you stare at V1 for a few seconds it has a 3D effect. Like it Bill.

Best Hallowe'en image, I thought I had posted this Award sorry Bill.
