Challenge: Free Study 2007-04 (Expert Editing*)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
Location: NYC
Date: Apr 29, 2007
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/40
Galleries: Digital Art
Date Uploaded: Apr 28, 2007

Taken in broad daylight, in central park and 5th ave :)

Took a shot of an old tree and one of a front stoop.

Darkened the hell out of the background (then unselected little areas to form 'stars')

Added the stoop, resized and dropped the opacity to 95%

Lots of playing with highlights, levels, contrast, and burning.

Desaturated everything except for the fruit/nuts on the ground- just for added fun ;)

This is my first shot at 'digital art'. Inspired by Al Magnus. :)

Greetings from the Critique CLub -

Congrats on your first try at digital art. You did a very good job at it and the voters rewarded you well.

You did a great job at combining the two images. Pretty clean editing overall. Would hav eliked to have seen some dirt or stuff ont he bottom steps to really fill out the illusion butthat a minor nitpick. Personally I dont care for the colored berries or whatever they are, but that too is a minor issue.

Excellent editing. The dark mood works well especially along with your choices of models between the tree and stoop. This just has a great overall mood and feel to it.

I really dont have anything major to suggest to make it better. You done real good! ;) Keep up the good and creative work.

Tim

You have a cool little Gilliam-esque thing going on here, I like it. Would have liked to see a bit more contrast/detail in the tree bark, but overall I think this is quite an interesting shot.

Very well done. Love the surreal feel and the spots of red at the base of the trunk.

A v interesting photo. I had to wai for my eyes to adjust and then out came the other trees and the sky - makes your title very appropriate. The subject maybe too dead centered here. Good framing though

Very creative use of PS. Would love a person in the shot to top it off, but it is still an effective image.
