today was beautiful here. the sun was out, it was warm but not too warm, nice breeze, and the occasional cloud. i was inside all day on the computer. i finished a new photo. i don't have a tutorial on it but i can show you the consecutive jpgs until i got the end result. this is a new idea i'm working with, trying to get all the kinks out, but for a first attempt i thought it came out ok.
ok, here's the original photo. nice, cool train track scene. love the curve in it and the water too. i remember this day, i was pissing around waiting to pick someone up from work...pretty sure it was my brother. any who, this is after i adjusted levels and colors and things.
this one the colors are much more bright and rich and vibrant. i like it this way better. so i tried to just crop it and see how it looked. this is what happened.
totally different picture, right. i like this one too. more emphasis on the tree line that the tracks. till nice proportions and good flow i think. but now i wanted it to look vintage. something like a crumpled map came to mind first, or the wild west or something along those lines. so this is what i came up with. i also had some ideas while i was at work to make it look better. but after i'm done with this blog i'm done with the computer tonite. ok, here the grand finale.
ok, here it is. i think it turned out ok. looks vintage, wild west, crumpled map.
