Image Umbrella: Image Modification/Manipulation

Image Umbrella: Image Modification/Manipulation
Post your devious photographic fakes here!

Things to keep in mind:
- Please post links to your source images here; that way we'll be able to see how 1337 you really are.
- Try not to post your image right after another user's. Allow some time for people to reply (or give an opinion yourself!)
- Utilize constructive criticism. Being mean is not welcome or tolerated.
- Try for criticism that's more helpful than "looks good" - say why. Say what works, say what can be improved. It'll make everyone's skills better (including yours)!
- By the same token, keep the rules in mind. They will be enforced here just as much as anywhere else.
- It bears special mention that nothing hateful, pornographic, or otherwise rulebreaking will be tolerated.

Now, go change the world!


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I was having a hard time imagining how some of the actors that have been cast to play well established roles in the forthcoming Star Trek movie (unfortunately not due until May 2009) might look, so tried my hand at a bit of photomanipulation; let me know what you think.

lolz smoking squirrel. Too bad it doesnt have thumbs XD

Working on my colorization skills. This time I used an overlay+transparency method, but I just can't seem to get colors I want. This is the first colorization I've done in months, though.

Well I like it! and that could be an idea for those who think that windmills spoil the landscapes, go eco-energy, go!

My entry for a Photoshop Contest competition...

20 mins, and not much 'magic' save for the 'radial blur'...

@sabrown 100 & Mike Ryan: for image manipulation, I use Paint.NET exclusively... Photoshop Contest is just a Image Manipulation competition site that I came across many years ago through Fark.com... Having a set image to manipulate can help with creativity when you've got "imager's block" :shock: ... I try to encourage my students to do stuff like that to take their work "out of the classroom" and (kinda) "into the world".

I haven't played with Photoshop since I discovered Paint.NET (around 3 years ago). It is far simpler for student's to "grasp", but lends itself to more advanced application should students be interested enough.
