About the Image(s)

This is a technique I came across one day and thought I'd give it a try, although I didn't know quite how to do it.. So I just started playing around to see if I could somehow emulate the look. This is one image copied three times and rotated three different ways to give the urban setting a chaotic feeling. I used a few different blending modes in PS and settled on Difference in one (or two) of the images. I quick selected the girl and left her intact in the final image. Then I increased color saturation and made a few color adjustments and called it good.

Jan, I like what you've done with this one. It does create a chaotic feeling that accentuates the energy of the street. The chaotic aspect is both a strength and a possible distractor. I might play with desaturating the background a little to make the women more the subject as she competes with a lot of color on the left side of the screen. I might also consider a tighter crop or move her closer the rule of thirds portion on the right   Posted: 07/09/2021 21:13:21

Interesting technique Jan! So much fun to play around with these kinds of things.
My only thought is that she looks a bit "cut out" and then pasted on the page. Either feather her edges or make her a bit chaotic too.. just less than the rest of the image. Not sure but worth a try.   Posted: 07/17/2021 23:03:08

Jan, I like how you worked this out with three images but kept the woman sharp. The color values are good to bring it all together. I can just imagine the woman walking the street in her own world imagining how she would use all of the clothing. I have no suggestions.

Brad and Kathy have interesting suggestions for variations but I like what you have done and don't think it needs to be changed.   Posted: 07/22/2021 11:30:48
