Adopt-a-Bronco:
HANGING CHAD!
Default My Masterwork........

My preoccupation with creating images continues....

Friend of mine who's a doc says, "Not a problem. Lots of guys your age take up oil painting." He's right. But oil painting is a mess, so this is my outlet, and my quest is to become a "recognized expert" in the humble art of electronic cut and paste:




This is the Original 1280x1024 ... on loan from Buff Galleries to the OrangeMane.

Wow ... 68 views and not a peep outta ya ... is it that bad or just boring?


Not much hope for this one, but it's my own personal thread I guess .....


Still working on image creation ... goal is to become a recognized expert in the humble art of electronic cut and paste.......

But I have a ways to go, I thought I could get some advice here. This image is from scratch - recreating one of the most breathtaking sight I've ever seen: 4:55 a.m., eastbound on Roosevelt in North Seattle, and the sun hung like a giant cherry against a super smooth blanket of dove grey sky (f'ing phone battery was dead). I've searched and searched images, and indeed the discrete natures of the sun and its one color -- against the sky and its one color - seems unique. Can't find anything like it.


PROBLEMS I SEE: Greenery on edges too green for as dark as it is; pavement bad; perspective might be screwy; reflection of am/pm sign too light.. Somebody said it wasn't centered, but I think that's ok.


I'm using Photoshop Elements and - gulp - Paint. It's easy to maneuver with.

Thanks for taking the time.

Do you mean save as a bitmap?

I've done that ... and if you're referring to the blurred edges of the sun, that's actually one of the best parts, as it represents what I actually saw. I started with a red ball, resized it like 40x larger and saved it .... then shrunk it to 15% and saved it, then .... back and forth until the edge looked right.




Gave it a mid-grey background - all the white behind it makes it hard to differentiate between colors and textures.








W-I-D-E-N-E-D the perspective on the street - both sides; lowered the height of the street-sky 'event horizon' one pixel; cleaned up the reflections of am/pm sign and lights on building.
