Challenge: Parallel Lines (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Sony DSC-F707
Location: MI
Date: Mar 15, 2004
Aperture: F8.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/400
Date Uploaded: Mar 15, 2004

This is my first entry and I was not 100% sure on things so I will explain.
All editing was done on MGI 8.1 a very small program that came with my camera. I did something different here to bring out the blue of the tracks. I darkened image then lightened with Color enhance. I used one up on color adust. Then I took it to pS to resize because lines do NOT do resizing on MGI well. These were RR tracks by my house. As far as I KNOW color enhance and color adjust are BASIC adjustments. If not I guess I will find out lol.

Nice twist on a warn out theme. Interesting how aged the railroad ties look.

Where did the blue come from? It makes a nice, original effect.

awsome, how did the blue come about?

I like the contrast, although I'm not 100% sure of the colour choice. The composition is great though.

Great color, the blue gives it an eery feeling.

Neat rails, but I think the funny background is a little distracting.
03/17/2004 01:39:04 AM
Reverse colors?
03/17/2004 01:11:07 AM
Haven't been through them all yet....but sure like this the best of the track shots so far. Good composition and editing to focus right on those tracks lines.

I knew this was going to be a common theme in this challenge, but the color and texture makes this one rise! [6]
