About the Image(s)

Our Canadian Photo organisation (Canadian Association for Photographic Arts) is currently running a competition on the theme of Music. I submitted this image along with two others. There are a lot of Photoshop layers here with a variety of Blend modes and I learned a quite a bit in the process. I was trying to reflect on the good old days when our tape players would eat the tape and we had to reel it back in with a pencil.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

I smiled when I first saw this image. I remember the days of having to reel back the tape with a pencil.
It looks like you had fun with Photoshop.
Let us know how this image fared in the competition.   Posted: 02/05/2024 12:03:35

This is an interesting image, Tor. It is very stark and psychedelic, but clearly, that is the effect you are looking for.
Like Jim, I will be interested to hear how it goes/went in competition.
You have obviously put a lot of post processing work into the image and the effect is quite stunning. The greatest benefit is that you "learned quite a bit in the process."
Well done

I like the psychedelic feeling of this image! It goes with the retro-ness. Great work!   Posted: 02/09/2024 14:23:00

This makes my eyes go funny!! I can see why you would have had fun doing this. Maybe try it on a dark background and not white?   Posted: 02/18/2024 11:23:29
