This was a problem, you couldn't vote what you wished. This was supposed to avoid friendly votes (or the opposite) but it didn't work well in some cases.
No disrespect imagined Mr Eye ! Imgur is just the website we use, mainly in the Photoshop side, to edit our entries. But Staaan has planned something easier and better than that in a near future 😎
When contest is finished I will recommend you an excellent book about it.
Toronto, springtime, this is Exopotamia, very kindly I reply to you 💖
I am no spambot, promised! No Cyber Gremlin, no Gremlin at all as a matter of fact. I just reloaded my photo through Imgur site, as the buildings around Din River were too dark, I made them clearer. Now you can see them better but indeed when you click on the photo you are on Imgur website. I could have suppressed the entry and done another one, but then all the nice comments would be lost, pity.
Oh you were there too Kuvitella? what was your name? (if it is not a secret 😉)
This is very creative and poetic, surprising and wonderful. I want to go there.
Yes, simplified rules compared to Pxleye's would be nice. A minimum of them, the more important one being not to use other people's art (all personal creations like already photoshopped images, renders, drawings...).
I liked the simple way we had to show our sources in PhotoshopNation, just entering them the same way we entered our compositions.
Not the author of the post, but possibly the author of the comments?
I told you no Mezopotamya, Exopotamya this is, Toronto indeed. Wonderful place this is. Beautiful photography too.
This is strange. I remember comments very well and I can't see them anymore 🤔
Yes, strange. I googled it and all is Mesopotamya, this is wrong.
Yes this re-uploaded, too dark before, now beautiful. Sorry this not city Toronto of yours, this city Toronto Exopotamya. Same same but different.
For those who were not previous members of Pxleyes, here is a link to the guidelines for photoshop manipulations which most previous members are still in the habit of using. http://www.pxleyes.com/guidelines/photoshop/
I am on board with you (and I have Picassa and love it). Pushing an ordinary photo past a "pure" image into the realm of art is also my passion, sadly (as you have said) it is not for every purist so we fall into a small but growing category of artists bent on bending the rules and rocking creativity! YAYA Thank you for your response, appreciated.
Mew, mew, mew 😺
I'm in love. What a heartwarming shot of this gorgeous wee beastie. His eyes are sharp and that is the most important part, showing us his soul. In order to bring our eyes closer to Stuart's you could try brightening the eye either through dodge effect or layer with white then blend down....Nevertheless I love the point of view for we are instantly absorbed into his world and we see it is a kind and loving world with those human hands (or is that feet) in the frame. There is also a nice warm hue overall...the temperature is just smack on the button. Nice one....please give Stuart an extra sunflower seed from me!
Thank you for this kind comment. Human hands (and arms), Olga, not feet! Stuart has very dark bright little eyes like pearls. I thought you idea was interesting so I've tried it but it doesn't work well for I don't recognize my Stuart 🐭
This has such a nice ethereal feel to it, delicate. I like the details that you have captured in the face of the marble (?) sculpture. Did you use a white gradient then masked out the statue, or in other words, how did you shoot and process this image? I really like the gentle feel of this post.
