About the Image(s)

I started with the picture of the clouds that I set to subtract. Then I added the picture rocks from the upper Peninsula of Michigan that I set to screen. The last picture of the storm clouds I set to difference. There were parts of the resulting picture that I did not like so I went through and did 12 sections, some small and some large, and let content aware fill do its job. I added a gradient filter and brightened the entire picture. I call the result "Storms from Space".

Charles, I love your image which is my kind of photography. It takes me on a visual journey in the mind's eye through the plethora of mysterious rock pools, cliff faces, raging sea and clouds. I like the way that your use of the clouds has created a misty effect which adds to the overall intrigue, movement and excitement of the picture. The shapes, patterns and textures throughout the image are lovely. Well done. A slight nit pick if I may but I would tone down the blue area on the lower left-hand edge which tends to draw the eye.   Posted: 01/07/2022 10:58:38

Your combination work is very interesting this month and last time. It's hard to find the parts dod the image that are in the originals, so you have done a great job in combining them in a way that is of interest to us and yer, very different from any of the originals. I think this might be a case of symbiosis. Anyway. it is an interesting abstract that one can enjoy perusing.
Charles, our bosses wanted to take you out of the group because you have note been making comments. I have so far protected you. You need to comment on everyone else's photos as part of being a DD member, so I hope to see your comments this month.   Posted: 01/15/2022 16:01:28
