American Indian Village

i was looking through morguefile the other day and ran across this image and thought it might be fun to do here. here's the file location: http://www.morguefile.com/archive/?display=47199&

the creator of the image asks for feedback if you use the image. you can find that info on that same page. so, feel free to point him here or write him or whatever.

i'm including a smaller copy of the image here and my own rendition of it. feel free to use either or the image at the link.

Re: American Indian Village

Wouldn't call this version art, but the original just cried for color correction and a new setting. (I'm not copying you, Craig . . . honest!). Not even sure that particular group of Indians would even be anywhere near mountains like that. Is it art if you exercise artistic license?

Re: American Indian Village

I hope he's still accessible - noticed that the photo was posted 4 years ago.

Re: American Indian Village

Hello Craig,

Thank you for using my picture, I like very much what you did with it when we know that the photo by itself is so bad lol.

I love photo restoration, i will send you the link to my website where i have my work, i also now study photography.

The only thing is that everything is in spanish.

Well, see you soon

Rocio

Re: American Indian Village

hi Rocio, very glad you got my email! and, welcome to RP.

now, there is no such thing as a bad photo; there are only photos that havent been photoshopped yet

female? now, how did i miss that? i must be getting old

feel free to post your link here where everyone can go view it. we're a pretty friendly crowd here or, put it in your 'sig' (digital signature; what you put at the bottom of your posts as a standard line).

also, where was this taken? perhaps some sort of museum?

oh, and thank you for the compliment! it was a fun photo to work on.
