Creative Photography #7


Well, Roger, this week I decided to take a silver gray Mercedes that I photoed in the parking lot of a restaurant and try something new. It wasn't too hard to do. It's called spherizing.


I selected the entire image to spherize, making it look, I think, like a new chubby Mercedes for 2009. I think I'll send the picture to Mercedes-Benz to see if they want to make a prototype. Ha!

I rather like your chubby Mercedes, it's a very cool effect!

This chubby editing makes it look real cute instead of the 'cool' image it normally portray :P
Good luck Mary on the contest!! :)

Roger said...

That reminds me of a fisheye lens shot, nice job Mary!

Thank you for your Creative Photography submission.

It's so cute... kind of like a sweet cartoon car. What's very cool is that you managed to do it without having it look distorted.

Patti said...

You made this Mercedes look absolutely adorable! Cartoonish, as Raven said.

Nice entry ~ good luck!

Hey Mary...what a cool looking car you designed! I used that effect with a photo of myself for a "funniest photo contest" and I used whats called a fisheye technique on my photo program. It looks very similiar. I love what you did, it makes the car look like a chuncy dunk! LOL! ;-)

Good Luck!

Hugs,
Kimmie

Nice edit. I love what you did with the car.

Dianne said...

It looks like it's smiling which is an improvement over how snotty they usually look ;)

great idea Mary

A Mercedes 230SL is a classic, no matter how you choose to restyle this two seat Benz...

genny said...
