Default Surf City (poster style)

Took this shot, PP in Photoshop and Topaz, then applied an "out of bounds" effect. C&C welcome.

I'll also throw in this one while I'm still in the mood to play with this idea.

Just curious as to why there are more than 100 views but no comments. Is is because you don't consider them to be "digital art", or that you just don't like them...or? A lot of work involved to have no feedback.

I like them both, but I prefer the first. The biggest reason for that is simply the facial expressions. The first surfer appears to be confidently moving along the wave while the second surfer looks like he is taking a last breath before he wipes out.
I do really like the out-of-bounds look and think it adds to the art. The second seems to have a little better out-of-bounds feel.
Although this is my first time viewing these particular photos, I often don't reply to other's pictures because my art background is, "I once had friends in high school who took an art class". I guess I don't feel to confident in my ability to accurately say if a photo is good or bad. Now that I think about it that is a little silly because I post my own photos here and don't care about the professional level of other people's critiques. I just want to hear opinions, professional or not.
I do like your posters.

Thanks a lot, Soup. I agree with you. I don't care that some observers aren't pros. Their reaction to my shots and creations are just as much appreciated.

I always admire your work, and I'm sure there is a lot of time in these...but the subject just doesnt turn my crank. Of the two, the first one I like the best

Hi Walter,
I love out of bounds effects and you've done a great job at it. The images are great action shots and the compositions are spot on!
I can relate to how you feel on taking the time to work on a project, people look but no one comments so you kind of have to wonder if the work you've done is complimentary to the viewers or not. I can also relate to what Soup says as I also feel that way sometimes and feel that I can't contribute for lack of experience in that field. I, myself, wish I could spend more time here as I love to look at everyone's work and comment but alas, just no darn time. I'd love to even post more of my own stuff which I do when I can steal a bit of time. I do think though that all those views is a good sign as to measuring how much people follow and look at our work.
I always enjoy your work so keep 'em comin'!!

Good job. I think the first one could use a bit more saturation but it is well done.

I like the out of bounds effect. Did you shoot from the pier or shore? What lens?

I think everyone else is frozen Walter LOL
