DHardy and all, if you follow the best of Instagram for the past few years, one thing stands out above all the other common qualities. Something like 80% of the top one hundred have the color red! I do miss the hearse on the cobblestones in this new version but a spider works to increase the creep factor. Very well done!

Hi Sharon... Thanks a hearse is a great idea too! The spider is s nine foot long sculpted statue that I build and exhibited at the Netherworld haunted house here in Atlanta. Cheers!

Atarix: a story told--deceased parents, children at the window, a mountain for remembering the impact of tragedy. I really like the subtlety of it that's reflected in the desat. Well, that's what I see anyway. Stories do make the best images.

You built that spider? Wow--person of many talents!

Amy'Elizabeth: PS is a good tool but your creative eye is a better one no matter the software. Lots of beautiful work continues to be done in GIMP including the background glow created by your gigantic moon and lightning bolts on a glittery sky. It might not be scary but it's a very fine image.

Ibvi1: I like the mood you create with black crows in the sky and black cat on the roof, misty cemetery under moonlight and ghoulish dead on the prowl (really, just dancers?)

djt1000.. I love the way your moon fades into the clouds!

SadulskyArt.. nice job on the bluish coloration... I also like the giant spider web, looks about the right size for my spider!

Hello guys,
I've just joined the site as I love restoring and manipulating old photos. I've just had a go at restoration challenge #66 I did this total restoration on my note 3 phone using the ps touch app. I was recently caught up in the whole note 7 exploding issues so now I'm back to this old thing. What I would really love is a fairly powerful professional graphics tablet but I just don't know which one to choose. I love the note stylus and wouldn't settle for anything less. I'm new at this and was wondering what you guys consider the best tools for the job?

Hey man, Retouching on a phone... not really my thing. I do it professionally for a huge fashion company, a Mac pro + Wacom. BUT, in your case; some one that wants to casually retouch a picture, i suggest the Microsoft Surface. It has a stylus with pen pressure and its made by Wacom. That would be my choice for casual retouching. I personally work with files that come close to 12 ~14 GB. So retouching on a tablet is not really an option for me but i love the idea of it.

Re: Oct 2016 Contest Discussion
 
Oh, And i tested a Wacom Cintiq out for work. But i didnt like it for indept retouching. The problem is when you Dodge and Burn... your pen tip is always over the area you are dodging and burning on, especially if you dodge and burn with a small brush size. And i do that a lot. Keep that in mind if you invest in something expensive for long term.
