this is combination of three photographs i took when i went to wollongong with my niece rosannah in august ... it was getting quite dark ..
i used different photographs from the same trip to wollongong for day 11 of our overlays side challenge ...
this is day 11 ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_611069.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_611069.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

these are the three original photographs i used in the making of 'the flood' ..
the lighthouse ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612555.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612555.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
the seagulls ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612556.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612556.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
and the waves ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612554.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612554.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

this is the workflow
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612558.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_612558.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

a few months later ... i saw the flood on another computer and i found the yellow to be overpowering, so the flood became the lighthouse .. basically the same but different colouring & dimensions ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_669251.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_669251.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

then i did a more 'finished' version for an exhibition ..
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_860434.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67145/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_860434.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I kind of liked that orangeish hue - it gives it a more ominous look, not unlike the sky that turns red before a tornado.

Yes, after looking at the two again, I am still more in favor of the first rendition.

WOW!!! This is just stellar... Simply amazing motion, composition, and tones. This is going straight into my favorites, so that I can view it repeatedly and enjoy the layers of depth you've imagined and created here. Outstanding...

This is so dramatic! Looks like something out of a movie.

Oh Roz this is just brilliant.

I've had a fiddle with layers but was disappointed with the saturation, how do you keep the saturation up. Obviously I'm only doing the basic paste and opacity and not getting these sort of results. Is there a more detailed 'How To' tutorial on how to work with layers to get this type of quality pic at the end.

OMG OMG!!! This is totally amazing!!! I have dreams JUST like that. You're a genius, Roz!! Wow - I have nothing intelligent to say, other than that I love it.

Wow! What a successful image! If this is what your dreams look like, it's no wonder you weren't getting much sleep!

I love the way the pattern of the birds repeats the rhythm of the waves! I thinkit's what makes these separate elements work together so well. Contextually, I only question why that light is on but the main light of the lighthouse is out. I wondered what it would be like if it were "turned off"...but it provides a nice element on the classic thirds intersection. Maybe if the main light were "on"? Not sure...there's just a little strangeness in the story it seems to tell. But then, it is your dream. ;)

Have you thought of uploading some of these to DPC Prints?

So, so neat! I love everything but the color... wonder how it might look if everthing was a little 'cleaner,' whiter... Just a thought. :)But otherwise this is lovely! :)
