Not too sure about this (maybe a bit too busy), but i liked the colours and it sort of reminds me of that Picadilly Circus illuminated look. Comments welcome as always.

I like this but I think it needs less crop and bit more of the gas pump on the left. Very creative.

Syd, I like these too. Out of curiosity, was the PP quite long-winded or was it a 'glowing edges' type-thing?

Thanks dudes for your comments and appreciation.

The story is . . . after a trip to a local nature reserve yesterday, in which the sun was shining for once with clear blue skies and little fluffy white clouds I was able to shoot offabout 50 or so shots. You know how it is . . . most got trashed for one reason or another. I took a few of a pair of swans at 28mm (equivelent) and some of a squirell up a tree at 300mm, but I wasn't really happy with them. On the way back we stopped for petrol/gas and I snapped the shot below. Admittedly not a very good shot at all. However, sometimes the shiny reflecive surface of cars can sometimes be appealling as close crop abstracts. I couldn't do that with this one so thought I would try something else just so as I had something from my days endeavours.

>Filter - Glowing edges

>adjust contrast and brightness to taste

>crank the saturation right up

So, very easy........

It's also worth playing around with the levels and curves with this filter too. Close crops can really highlight the details and make apects quite interesting.

Regards,

Syd



P.S. Hards80s_BodyDouble, Dustin's alter ego, SteveDak, LBoy, VATechtigger, Hooliganor whoever you are . . . It's cool having you around but it just aint the same somehow.

:blah:

i'm glad that some of us are posting this type of shot in the critiques section, for i

think that it should encompass "all" of the photographic fields that we wish for either

tips of improvement or comments.

i posted a shot of an ant using the exact techniques you did here in the "digital art"

section and recieved fifty views. that was four days ago.

i posted a few shots of a ******* last night and have recieved 89 views.

thank you syd, for opening this type of shot to the critiques section.

i like the mystery in this one (though i figuer you were cropping the busy stuff as

seen in above original). :blah:

Syd, whoever that Hards80 is, he ain't our Dustin. He too cold to be him. :G He is bad at masquerading.

The shot is cool. You have alway produced some very unique type of photography. Keep at it.

Kind regards.
