|Oh well, so many ideas and not enough time (or skill) to pull them off. I really like Burton’s movies, as with the rest of my family, so I wanted to enter this challenge. My daughter was as helpful as ever but I rushed the setup, taking and processing of the shot. There are so many flaws (sticky tape on the eyes, shadows etc) and a lack of imagination that I know this will finish low in the challenge. That being said, I do like the image as a whole and I’m proud to enter it.
I mucked around with my trial version of Topaz B&W getting the contrast that I wanted then introduced transparency to recover some colour. I feel this worked better that just desaturating the image.

OMG! When ‘disassociation’ made her comment I was sure that she was mistaken but I had to check. You see my daughter owns the movie and it says clearly on the cover “From the Director of ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’”. I also looked at images to get ideas from //www.google.com.au/search?q=coraline+tim+burton&hl=en&prmd=imvnsfdo&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=Kb3QTo7bKOjhmAXMg7XVDQ&sqi=2&ved=0CGkQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=595
Alas, I have made a monumental error (not my first – refer to the John Lennon challenge). Coraline was not a Tim Burton film!! The image is DNMC! You couldn’t even say it was a Shoehorn attempt. There’s even a good chance this will make my profile page to remind me and everyone else what a goose I am. Mind you, I’m finding it a bit strange that at 71 votes it’s sitting on 6.2254 when it is DNMC.
Thankyou ‘disassociation’ for educating me on the importance to conduct a proper research when using the web. Well, at least it’s a shot that I quite like to look at :-)
