Polaroid Dreams

Well I like it. I think I may like it more if you separated the car parts from each other some like the pieces of a jig saw puzzle. The idea though is great. Thanks for posting it.

Comments allways welcome

Inspiring as always, snowdog... I liked your results so much that I wrote a couple PS actions to create the individual Polaroid image effects for future projects. ("Imitation... flattery..." etc.)

I think you nailed it on what you framed and your choices of angles and the 3 sky pix, 5 for the car, 3 for the flowers achieve a pleasing visual harmony.

The flower and Chevy (57?) images are distinguished by shapes, angles and/or color tones. Food for thought: You might consider different degrees of Saturation and/or Lightness on the sky pics to break them up, too. (See upload.)

On the other hand as originally crafted the blue provides a sense of continuity that compliments the angular and shape variety of the flower and car pics, so you can't go wrong either way.

Stop by anytime. Your work is great.

I'm pretty sure the chev is a 56, My first car was a 57. Looked good but my Honda is a better car.

I really like the Polaroid stitch effect.
