    "Spray Booth"

    I like this one Uwe. When I was 15yrs old I used to work the summer holidays in a factory that made tooth brushes. I painted the Mickey Mice and the Donald Ducks on the top of children's brushes using a spray gun in a booth. We did 20 in one shot, and something like a hundred gross a day (forgotten what a gross is )

    Here is one from my early efforts to do Hockney style joiners digitally. It is called "Chile Hotel, styled after Hockney Polaroid Joiners"

    I thought it was someplace in Italy. Never been to Portugal, but have always wanted to visit. Loved watching their football team.

    Like it. Are the reflections from a real photo or created in blending?

    Sorry Michael, I was having a doze :sleep006:

    The original image is of a glass clad building, where the architect designed in this effect. I sliced it into into 300 pixel squares and reassembled it to reinforce the effect. This one is the "alpha" version. I didn't move the squares out of place, the architect did all of that for me. Actually, I think when the folks in the building open their windows it drastically alters the reflections - clever stuff.

    You must be 5-6 hours ahead of me, so you are asking me to try to have a doze just after I get out of bed I can't do that

    Feeling dark today--I wanted to go whole hog or nothing on this one LOL. Still not sure how I feel about it--but its how I felt as I shot it--or at least how I feel today as I think about it. Two versions.

    Diane,

    the brighter version is too hot in the highlights for me. The other works better.

    Cool Diane! I think the second one feels more natural to me because the bricks look a little incongruous over a landscape sky... to me... but as Uwe felt, I like the less bright/more muted tones of the first.

    Hmm, I'll be my usual picky self and choose the top one but with the middle ground of the lower one. I like your choice of the brick texture as befits the industrial look.

    Second one for me - I like the treatment of the trees.

    Re: Blends

    I like the second one, but I think it would be stronger if you used a more subtle texture in the sky and not so bright. Maybe if you thru in some strong clouds over the texture. Bottom half looks really nice.

    Yes, I prefer this version - wide and spacious works better with this technique.
    I wonder, why are some of the division lines thicker than others? This has occurred in both examples ...

    There could be a few reasons:

    The lines in the base image are also all over the place - so I don't want to put a mechanical "aligned by photoshop" on it

    I'm too eager to get it done, so I didn't bother to figure out how to do "aligned by photoshop" I aligned 50 images manually - the next phase of the project will be to move away from the confinement of squares.

    I wanted viewers to wonder why some lines are thicker than others

    Hey, I'm only in the early stages of this project

    Hi Keith,
    Lovey shot! I have always liked reflections on glass windows wherever they may be. The reflected images at times tend to accentuate the character of vernacular architecture and other local cultural flavors unique to the place. Best regards, Leica 77.

    A lady in the market only has one leg - I can't believe that simple blending would have done that, maybe you painted it out?

    Nice stuff, are you printing them? - I think they would look nice on canvas.

    Thank you Keith.
    In this set I start out with in-focus images that include human figures but apply vertical motion blur to them before beginning the blend process - here is a previously posted example that is clearer in this respect:



    As for the "one-legged" lady, she does have two; her right leg is behind her, propelling her forward but is further hidden by the blend textures.

    I haven't printed them yet (low on funds ) but I reckon printing precisely this type of image on canvas would be rather but you may be right, I'll have to try it both ways.

    Looks like canvas without canvas. But it may work very well.

    Re: Blends

    I broke down and bought an E-P2. I found that I was using my G1 all the time because, for one reason or another, focusing through the LCD on my E-P1 was not good for me (in bright sun, useless)

    Here is a quick blend taken with the E-P2, tilt adapter and Zenitar 16mm lens

    Thanks Uwe:

    This is only the second total abstract I've done through blending, and I'm excited because the possibilities are endless.

    This one was using 3 images:
    - a bokehgraph with double line bokeh
    - a section of my doodle pad (the circle on the left side is the result of using a punch to make a hole for a card airplane that I was making!)
    - a small part of an oil painting hanging in my living room

    The "difference" mode in blending can do some powerful stuff

    Of this page I really like the first of Uwe - Spray booth - very nice toning and historical feel.
    Also the two reflecting buildings of Keith and the Market scene of Michael.
    Just go away for some time and new works are popping up like daisys in the spring, even when some people are taking naps in between.

    Really like the second one, but I would like it to have the reflection in the lake of the first one.

    Once again I've been away for a while and it's taken me quite a while to get through the pages of this thread I needed to catch up on. Really inspiring stuff being done here. I particularly enjoy Diane B's first factory shot.

    While I was down in NYC visiting my daughter and new grand-daughter I took little Emeilia for a walk around her Brooklyn neighborhood and got this shot.

    While I was down in NYC visiting my daughter and new grand-daughter I took little Emeilia for a walk around her Brooklyn neighborhood and got this shot.

    Brilliant!

    Thanks all. It was shot with the Panny G1 and the 20/1.7 at 1.7. The resulting bokeh worked very nicely with that particular texture.

    I can't resist being the proud grandfather. Here's little Emelia in her stroller during that walk. Same camera and lens but cropped and softened a bit.

    Thank you Jack. It's the canvas look that really attracts me to Mike Reignier's work too.
