Re: Fire Away

Richard,
A very nice image. I don't have any criticism to offer. When an image is manipulated in this way, it is very much a piece of art that expresses what you want to get out of it. I think the image will have much appeal, across a wide variety of viewers.

By the way, I (and many others) don't call these "HDR", as they go way beyond what HDR was intended to do. But, that really doesn't matter, as any tool used to create art is just that, a tool. I use a screwdriver for many things it was never intended to be used for.

Another idea would be to do a whole series of work like this, each image associated to a part of a city, or to a theme of similar sorts. The "series" would have some mass appeal. For example, I could envision someone wanting three or four pertaining to a ball park, or a renovated down town area, etc, etc.

Good work and best of luck !

Re: Fire Away

Thank you Mr "O",, i appreciate your input and your time.
I use the HDR term rather loosely because I usually run 95% of my images through that process. I had considered a series based on this..my problem is I get bored far too quickly with the subject and want to move on.

thanks again,,

richard

Re: Fire Away

I think it could use a little more contrast, and maybe some depth, by darkening the building in the back.
Good job.
