Challenge: Triptych (Advanced Editing IV*)
Collection: 2005
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Nikon
Location: Trail, BC
Date: Nov 11, 2005
Galleries: Diptych / Triptych, Science and Technology
Date Uploaded: Nov 11, 2005

I wanted to make a triptych where the panels would neither be rectangles nor strictly delimited areas. I decided on free flowing diagonals. I wanted to illustrate fog, but ended up with electricity.

Technical: This is a composite of three pictures, edited separately, stacked, and blended in normal mode. Sections of the top and middle pictures were selected and erased to let the middle and bottom layers show through.

Of the three pictures, 2 have minimal editing (mainly histogram adjustment), one has a bit more editing to get the colour shifted towards pink.

I hope this works.

Don't you think for one minute this was not a good idea to put in Tryptich!

I thought it was great. You have been here long enough to know not to allow low scores here to say anything more than high scores. If people can't get past their limitations on thought that should not limit your creativity!!!

Keep up the individual thought :-D

Other than being a really cool photo, I can't find the connection to the challenge topic.

This is a seriously ingeniuos idea! Took me a few minutes to figure out where the three photos were.

Well done - for originality. Among many great images in this challenge, yours is one of my favorites. It's a shame that the lines are jagged.

I'm not sure what you were aiming for here, but i find the lines and divisions very distracting...

is this some sort of advanced triptych? id want to know...

The complex way in which you put these shots together takes away from the shotss themselves (in my opinion). I would rather just see the photos.

I really like this design.

Good luck!!!!!

Poor Ursula. :( An interesting idea for sure but not my one of my favorites of yours. It's okay, you've kind of been monopolizing the top of the ranks these days.

Wow! Just when I thought I'd been through all possible interpretations of "triptych", up comes yours, and blows away all my assumptions. I love this. Great colours too. I keep looking at the whole compilation, and see more and more in it each time....9.

Questionable framing but OK, I can see 3 objects. Interesting...8

Interesting post processing, but I'm missing the triptych.

This is a strong picture, but not a triptych ... maybe a multitych.

im not much of a fan of this, neat idea, but maybe if it fit the challenge? 5.

i was afraid of doing something crazy like this - but i like it !!! .. hopefully it will score well even though is is quite non-conventional - the stack and power lines? are effective: 7

the gimmicky presentation doesn't let the images breath
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not really a Triptych by definition but interesting. I am afraid your score will reflect your use of 98 panels vs. 3 though.

This is not a triptych, but it is very artistic and creative.

I'm curious to see the other comments you're getting. This is interesting, but not what i think of with a triptych, does not seem to meet the 3-hinged-panel descriptin in anyway...I may have to be the out-of the box voter and fight the tide! Seems very digital arty which is not popular here at DPC. We'll see as this is the first image i've voted on. Good luck.

this is not triptych really..

Nice concept

Great image! A 10

interesting, but not divided into three...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2005 12:45:43 AM
Ummm... That's certainly a completely different approach. It's sort of hard to take the "tri" component of this in, visually... Hell of a creative effort, regardless.
