Creative Photography #8

theteach1166

Jamaica Wildlife Preserve July 2008

I played with the color so it came out what I call "more than sepia." And lit the photo there in the middle for effect.

Very nice. I feel as though I am sitting behind the red rail (?) and peering right through the lens with you. Love what you did with the picture.

I am trying to upload Ruby Tuesday photos and blogger picture loading is broken. The help boards are full of complaints. Thought you might want to know.
Argh.

The little light looks like a flashlight presenting the rest of the picture. And the rail provides a stage to what's beyond. Or is what's beyond the stage and we are the audience?

I thought there wasn't going to be a creative photography this week. I have something ready so I guess I'll play too. I like this what you did with the light on this too.

Oh - and I love your new banner photo. Beautiful.

Askew To You said...

Pretty! I think that the way you fixed the color gave this photo a sort of retro feel. Very cool.

Simone said...

Suzie said...

Julia Smith said...

Like Askew to You, I thought this had an older photo feel to it. And I love the lit effect in the center.

Patti said...

An urban refuge - in the city but seemingly another world, a salt water oasis...

Every I see "teach" and college professor, it reminds me when my daughter was a GA and had to teach an intro psychology course. What stories she had...

Love the photo technique

Debbie said...

Michelle said...

Mary, very nice edits done to this picture. Looks almost as if there's a torch light shining down or maybe aliens arriving from a space craft! :P

Dianne said...

your effects make it seem 3D. it also reminded me of the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History - that's how good the lighting is!

I could not muster a CP entry this week but the fun is in visiting anyway.

Chica said...

Makes me think of "Godlight"... when a ray of sunshine comes down on one spot as if too tell you to pay close attention.

Beautiful effect!

Reminds me of "Fields of Gold" by Sting.

"... and we walked in fields of gold..."
