About the Image(s)

One day when I was working my assistant said to me that I should take photos of trash. The next day I came across this sofa in the woods that someone dumped. I did some shots of it then got home and ran it through Lightroom and Photomatrix. Using a few images I tweaked each one different in Lightroom. I wanted it to have a surreal look. I used my D7000 but lost all the details in the processing.

This brings homelessness to another level! Spooky! It meets all the usual, interestand composition and lighting. The bright trees bring attention the the grey couuch. I t gives me goose bumps. I would not change it!

Very interesting, spooky image that is just in time for Halloween! The colors also say Fall and Halloween. The composition is very good and the mixture of color and gray is great. I would not change a thing.   Posted: 10/16/2020 08:34:21

Wow, what an affect. With the brownish-orangish colored trees jumping off my screen, against the greyish limbs, grass and sofa, this image easily grabs the viewer's attention. Idea,dub in a couple skeltons seated, blow up to 6' and place in front of our house for Halloween.   Posted: 10/19/2020 14:31:32

Wow. It is eye catching The trees leap out at you like a 3D movie. A number of possible stories leap into mind when I view it. They are all Halloween type stories.
I agree with Barbara, it gives me goose bumps. Your edits are outstanding. Great imagination.   Posted: 10/19/2020 15:10:50

You created a surreal image. I would try to darker the
image, that create more Halloween horror atmosphere.   Posted: 10/20/2020 00:08:08
