About the Image(s)

Original images post processed with Adobe RAW conversion, Elements and Topaz Studio.
This is a Composite mostly, and the Altered unReality aspect are fighter jets invading our inner city. Very minor, small enhancements.
The jets are from an Air Show, and the building is a bank building in Toronto. Your comments and suggestions would be much appreciated.

An excellent composition, which works very well. I like the blending and the use of Topaz Studio to pull it all together.   Posted: 03/10/2023 15:19:39

The originals are great, and it is a good thought in combining them into a dramatic shot. Would setting the planes on a slight diagonal make an interesting offset to the square-on view? Also the edge of the wing of plane top right seems to be cropped by the edge of the pic, and maybe should be moved down slightly to allow the whole plane to be in view.   Posted: 03/11/2023 08:10:08

Thanks for your suggestion - I'm going to give it a try. Missing piece of the wing - still reminds me that my outgoing final quality control process is still not up to par.   Posted: 03/19/2023 17:21:17

I like the way you've inverted the colors of the original. It gives the image more continuity and allows more contrast between the acrobats and the apparatus.   Posted: 03/19/2023 13:36:40

Your original image of the architecture is wonderful, especially the contrast between the cool blues and warm yellows. In my opinion, keeping the warm colors at the bottom would give the image more of an aggressive (invasive) quality. The contrails of the jets are very alien looking in your revision, so I think your edit was spot-on there. Nicely done!   Posted: 03/19/2023 15:21:07

Hi Gunter, to me, this is one of the top space art image. Excellent work.   Posted: 03/23/2023 21:45:09

You have done an excellent job of merging the two images. The color palette works well, and your edits present a cohesive image.   Posted: 03/24/2023 14:41:57
