Lonely Man by Grace Lee

June 2020 - Lonely Man

About the Image(s)

Lonely man awaits his chance
To have some love and sweet romance
He's waiting for his life to start
And just needs love to fill his heart
So lonely in his life he often wanders
He is just the lonely man

This is the one after Camera raw edit. Then you go to "Filter" in PS, then click "Blur" / "Motion Blur", then play around...   Posted: 06/08/2020 02:22:19

Very striking image. Thanks for showing us the original and how you did the zoom effect. The poem is very good. A thought that I have, is to leave more base under the man so that he does not look so suspended.   Posted: 06/13/2020 13:11:16

You created a very special telling story image. Your title is "Lonely Man" and he is " awaits his chance To have some love and sweet romance", So I would keep the couple on the right side corner of original version, that has strongly comparison. After you added moving blur, your image get a deeper imagination.   Posted: 06/19/2020 00:18:39
