FRANK: Simple, but elegant.

PHYLLIS: Another inspired rendition. Though relatively complex to develop, a simple and elegant result achieved.

Omeyas:

I really like your tritone a lot - one of my favs in this category so far. Have you considerd cloning away a few of the artifacts around the bridge cables - particularly around the central tower? My eye got pulled towards those, and I think this would be pretty much perfect with some selective cleanup of the artifacts.

Best

Hi, call me Frank! You are perfectly correct, being a tritone it literally took me a few minutes and I did not give it a good look! As soon as I saw it on the screen, I thought, "----"
Is there a facility to remove it or not? I know on pbase you can.
First day here yesterday, probably trying to run before I can walk, teach me to take my time in future! Keep it coming, I can take lots of criticism, only way to learn. That's the beauty of these groups.
Thanks

DAVID...

For living so far away, you really captured the spirit of a bridge in California!

Hey, Yer still Gimping along. Is the student discounted Photoshop still on the horizon?

No magic .jpg artifact eraser function here. WYSIWYG. Since uploads are restricted to 100KB in the forums (200KB in the general gallery), frequently the quality of what you have to work with isn't ideal.

Heavy sigh...

I apologize in advance for this rather disturbing image.

I am envious of the crop of young people born after 1975 or so who did not grow up with the spectre of global war and impending disaster hanging over them - that spectre was a fact of life while I was growing up, and I don't miss it today.

Old demons die hard though, and I had a really bad nightmare a couple of nights ago - this is the result.

Toad -- that is a nightmare, and I hope it remains only a nightmare. The flames are pretty realistic, but the effect in the clouds is horrifically beautiful!

Mine's an attempt to add fog (render clouds -- difference) plus some added paint and distort effects to make it look more like fog (I've not yet seen Golden Gate in person, and rarely seen CA fog).

David, I love the way you toned down and softened the bridge pic. Nice border effect too. Really nice job!

Toad, that's really awesome! The statue was a perfect finishing touch.

CJ, great job on giving it a wet look. You can't tell where the ocean stops and the coast begins. Verrrry nice painting effects too!

Phyllis

That's fine, I can live with that! It's the same for everyone. I have recently put some photos on pbase and I normally keep them around 100kb, 150kb at the most, still doesn't prevent some people from getting some stunning results!

CJ:

For never having seen the GG bridge before, you did a brilliant job capturing the fog, especially on the far side of the bridge! Very well done!

Toad:

Technically, very well executed. Conceptually, very disturbing to me. As CJ said, hope this rendition represents something that will never happen.
