Photoshop Contest: Engines

PhotoshopPosted by Staaan

Just like in the previous photoshop contest, you are given a source photo to work with.

Your goal is to manipulate the photo in any way you want and turn it into a work of art. You can use Photoshop or any other digital image manipulation software.

This source photo is one of a plane engine. It was suggested by 'rturnbow' on Pxleyes almost 5 years ago:

— source photo —

You can find a high resolution version of the photo HERE

Be creative, and let's do some old school photo manipulations!

PS: It's very important to vote on every entry, the more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!

Good luck

Phone Home? Source files... Mostly warping of original source file. I think you can tell what is what. The rest was done with brushes and various layer styles.

Nice job finding so many sources, that’s my least favorite thing to do. You did a nice job stitching your sources together, you just need more work on lighting shading and focus. Your background is in focus more than some of your sources in front of it. Simply by adding a blur to the background you could help the depth of field. Additionally adding a slight grain over everything will pull it together. Keep up the good work.

Your depth of field is a lot better, and the grain you added really brings some cohesion. Nice job!

I like the story here and it is a learning experience reading Chalty's critique which I appreciate. Your sense of fun shines through with that Grepless logo. This is an image we enjoy studying. Nice work.
