Creative Interpretations: Sleepy Hollow

Just ran across these pics I took a few years ago in Sleepy Hollow cemetary. In addition to being a spectacular fall day, it was actually Halloween!

Maybe some would like to play around with them.

Also attached is my first attempt.

Have fun,
Annabel

Thought you folks might get a charge out of this!

That headless horseman is a hard act to follow.

nice steve

if you saved that image with the layers, and the lightning is on its own layer, try mirroring it so that it comes down from the right instead of the left. i think you'll get a better balance in the pic.

Might work at that.

My reason for using this side was that the original pic was taken in direct sunlight. In order to utilize objects I couldn't darken properly, I used the lightning to "illuminate" what was already too bright for a night effect.

You are probably right about the overall balance though.

ok, i see what you're saying. i think it would still work, though, regardless of which side. the lightning would still illuminate the gravestones from the other side as well.

either way, nice job

Craig and Steve, Thanks for your comments.

Steve, I REALLY like yours! How'd you get the night effect?

Thank you kind lady.

As for the night effect, I played with the HSL and brightness/contrast settings and then converted image to greyscale. And hoped that the lightning effect would take care of the brightness of the tombstones.
