Marvelous photography!!! Cheers Nonoy Manga
Thank you, Nonoy.
Thanks for your comment, Sedge!
Another cracking image! Really moody and ethereal!
Thanks, CK. Had fun post-processing this one.
I can imagine! The thing I find difficult is when to stop, lol…
Reblogged this on Conceptual Art.
Thank you, Sallyann!
You images continue to amaze, all tell a story, deep and moving.
Thank you Mehmudah for your always kind words.
Brilliant shot here Robert, love the processing, you have executed it very well, and thank you for your likes on my posts, appreciate it. Have a great day
Thank you, Ellis! It’s my pleasure to visit your blog, you have some great photos. Thank you for your visit.
Really like that, go on then give us a clue, mono conversion, selective colour then de-saturate?
Thanks Russ. That’s pretty much the formula.
I split the colors using a different technique than I usually do on this one. The colored version on the bottom layer, the converted one (done with the b&w adjustment mask) above it. Set the blend mode to dark on the b&w mask and went back to changing the tones on the mask. It worked nicely but turned out to be more work in the long run instead of using the direct approach.
The only additional step I did was using a hue/saturation mask on the final layer. The yellow was still too bright, so it needed to get shifted slightly towards red and desaturated a bit.
compelling composition – well done!
Thank you, Alessandro!
Beautiful-Beautiful-BEAUTIFUL !!!!! Great job, waouhhhhhh the tones are amaizing, BRAVO !!!!
Thank you, Leticia!
This is now my favorite pic you have done to date, excellent shot and post processing!!!! )
Thanks Ed! It was a lot of fun doing both. One of these days I will experiment more with macro and see what I come up with. You do amazing macro work!
Thanks, that means alot. I don’t get many options for urban work so I tend towards the nature and macro stuff..:-)
My pleasure, Ed! Nothing wrong with that, it’s nice and relaxing. Wish I spent more time there than urban areas!
Great photo,Robert !!!
Thank you, Geedebee!
Another world, another time, another place. Giant flowers under an alien sun. Brilliant…… an ordinary garden with ordinary flowers transposed by viewpoint, exposure control and a bit of colour tweaking into something wondrous. Creative photography at its best. Well done Robert.
Thank you, John!
What else can I add to all the other comments…WOW this is sure an award winning picture. ~Patty
Thank you kindly, Patty.
taking against light makes special photos… well done
Thank you, (D)OCULAR, indeed it does.
I think I see a werewolf lurching in the back part.
I probably should bring a silver bullet with me next time, just to be sure. Thank you for your visit and comment, Carl!
Holy moly, that is one of a kind image to me. When my 10 year old started this one, I didn’t even know what they were for. I wish it could be a paying job. Babbling again. I love this one!
Thank you, Amy! I think we all babble.
Surreal and ‘other worldly’. Fantastic image. Very well done.
Cheers, John! Probably odd that at this point it felt natural to make it un-natural.
Really great work – agree with the other comments above.
Thank you, Adrian!
This is sooooo amazing Robert… I love the flare and almost B&W treatment… very, very creative and I love it
Thank you, 2 Rivers! I almost went completely b&w, but the slight color came out looking better IMO. Thanks for your kind words and visit!
Exactly what I’ve come to expect from you, Robert! Great!
My imagination was caught by the tower in the background and would love to see more of it.
Thank you, Suzy! I think that’s one of the tricks with photography – to have a main focus, but to also have a hint in the background. Adds some mystery, I think.
Totally surreal! Love it!
Thank you, allmymoons.
This is so beautiful dear Robert, you did great image. Thank you, love, nia
Thank you, Nia.
