Original 2

About the Image(s)

I decided to change the scene to night. In step one I changed the temperature by sliding to the blue tone and with a curves adjustment darken and lightened as needed. In Step 2 I took the image into Corel Painter and hand painted to give it a painterly effect and change the light source to make it appear that he was reading by the light from the window. Recently, I decided to change it to B&W. Once again adjusting the light and dark tones and the lighting. I like the final rendition the best.

I think you make a remarkable, dramatic and interesting transformation of the original to demonstrate your creative imagination and talent.
However, I have mixed feelings about the contrasty top right corner. I conclude that it distracts me from your main subject.   Posted: 06/08/2021 13:36:03

Youve done a good job of elevating an ok "photo" to an "image" to be enjoyed. Much prefer the B&W to the blue. Id perhaps tone down the light areas in the top right window   Posted: 06/08/2021 14:37:53

Again, I agree with Jerry and Pat that the light area in the upper right corner needs to be darkened more....You have done a very good job with the "night effect"....I feel there needs to be more contrast between the figure and his surroundings..   Posted: 06/14/2021 22:45:24
