    Good, you changed also the title and that explains the important difference.

    Re "Manic Man"

    Was Rembrandt the inspiration here Mike - or, perhaps Salvador Dali?

    Love the stuff you have been doing lately and it's a treat to see Uwe asking you to remove something that was there, rather than something that wasn't

    I have one of Mike's large prints and they are even more dramatic in that form than on the screen.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks for posting that image Michiel. Pretty funny.

    Actually, I hadn't intended it to look like Dali, but the original reason for photographing this guy was for an article about Manic Depression in a magazine, and this friend of mine was the perfect subject. He was a Hungarian artist who spent a couple of years in the russian Gulag, and I was sure that he could draw upon all the emotions. He was also a pretty famous portrait artist, Frank Szaz. He had painted several heads of state around the world and was know for a portrait of Einstein that he painted from a photo I believe. So, he agreed to do it but didn't want to be recognized. I put a beret and a fake mustache on him and did the job. It was afterwards that I realized how much he looked like Dali.
    The original shots were in B&W and were done as a polaroid transfer. I'll attach it below.
    For the version above, I was after the Rembrandt portrait feel, but since I started with a B&W, I didn't want to add too much color.

    Re: Blends

    That was very well done Mike!
    My first impuls, seems always the best, was Rembrandt.
    The eye was Rembrandt but the mustache was a bit confusing, Dali Like.

    I like the similarity in background with Rembrandt.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Michiel, I have started making a few backgrounds with my textures that I can use to mimic that Rembrandt look for my portraits. Usually the biggest challenge is to find a subject that fits the old world style. I may do more with the individual images from my manic shoot.

    This is actually my first tests with a nice tool called "PhotoCopy" by Digital Film Tools. It emulates styles from painter. Lots to explore.

    Actually I got the spam on it this morning and my first thought was that for us "real men" who know how to knock up a good blend at the drop of a wacom it's just another gimmick.

    Yes I like it a lot. But I'm still playing. I have a few more Gaudi shots that I would like to do.

    Thanks for bringing Photocopy to our attention.

    "Out The Window View #1"

    Andrea and I were on a drive and she was driving for a change which gave me the opportunity to do some shooting with my iPhone out the car window. The up close trees create the motion texture and the trees in the distance remain somewhat sharp to ground the image. Winter trees with motion, one of my favorite subjects.

    Re: Blends

    Nice ones Uwe.
    I'd prefer the first two as a two by three format better - cutting off a section from the bottom in each, thereby strengthening the design.
    If I were exhibiting the three as an inseparable series I'd stretch the third one to match the same ratio and apply a little extra contrast to it for balance.

    They are blended with modified Flypaper textures.

    Was funny: I talked to a friend about the Olympus 50-200mm lens and found these E-3 photos from this lens.

    We have so many dunes photos. I once wrote this:

    http://www.outbackphoto.com/workflow/wf_77/essay.html

    Now with blending I think I know where to go.

    Here a blended version of one of our classic shots:



    I sometime blend more for the toning than the texture itself.

    This is not a crop. Was a special day I won't forget.
