Image Umbrella: Image Modification/Manipulation

Recommended Posts

I think I've got the right umbrella thread for this - I'm sure someone will kick me off elsewhere if not.

Someone on a flickr group had a suggestion for modification of an image I had posted for critique. This was the result of the work I did using PDN. The background sunset was taken using a Pentax K100D DSLR and the helicopter using a Panasonic DMC TZ3 Point and Shoot.

I duplicated the helicopter layer, which is a B&W conversion of the original image - that conversion done in my RAW processor - Bibble Lite. I left the middle B & W layer as a mask and merged the top layer using "multiply" to get this end result that I was really pleased with:

Well, I have been using PDN for a few days now, so I figured I would try to become an active member and show off some of my work to get some lovely constructive criticism that I probably need. I have done a few tutorials in the past few days and this Manipulation of me took the longest ( because I just couldn't get it right....still haven't) so I figured I would see what you guys have to say. Well, I was trying to "deadify" myself.

Thanks and enjoy!

It usually is, but Expired hasn't posted in a while :P

I like what you did with the pic, though personally I would only run the effect on the skin/hair - not the clothes and background. That way it wouldn't look like you just ran a full-canvas effect (like Soften Portrait).

I wish I were good enough to make an explosion in PDN that good.

Maybe it can be a challenge for all the heavy hitters in the forums to make an explosion that well.

I'm not that good at PDN, but i don't think even Ash could make a proper realistic kind of nuclear explosion using 100% PDN. Or maybe he could.. :? :? :?

Well, techincally with a tablet or just using the paintbrush tool it would be possible, but it would take forever..

He is a robot after all.. hehe =P
