About the Image(s)

This is titled Metamorphosis. I was just playing around with a shot from the local Science Center show and a paperweight from my wife's desk. They seemed like a good fit. I added my own arm to give it some Frankenstein mood, and then the spirograph from a local fireworks to finish it off.

Tom, Another flawlessly executed image. I like the lighting and all the different elements you've brought together to tell this story. There is a very minor distracting green element along the thumb side of the forearm. Not sure if that is from the background but it is a little sharper than the swirling green lines.   Posted: 06/13/2022 10:53:33

Hi Brad,
Thanks for the comments and pointing out the green cast from my background that needs to be removed. Do you think three hands or just one would work?   Posted: 06/24/2022 13:07:33

Tom, I like the three hands. One hand would be equally strong. A third option would be to have two hands with one lower down as if the arms are emerging from the vat of bubbling essence searching for something to grab onto   Posted: 06/24/2022 15:36:37

Hi Tom,
I like how you have put all these elements together; they work well. A personal prference is that I would like to see another lightning bolt coming out of your middle finger, that would give it a nice triangle feel of three lightning bolts. Like the green tones

Hi Nadia,
Good suggestion on the bolts. THanks. Do you think three hands or just one would work?   Posted: 06/24/2022 13:08:04

Hi Tom, my opinion is one hand is strong enough to tell the story. Unless your intention is to have multiple people metamorphosis out of the orb.

Vert creative! The elements work well together. This has impact and story and I love the green!

I would warp and liquify one of the lightning bolts a tad so it doesn't look like exactly the same one. The bottom of the left "transformer" seems grounded, but the bottom of the right one seems to float a bit.   Posted: 06/23/2022 16:39:49

Thanks Lisa. I'll fix that in version 2. Cheers.   Posted: 06/24/2022 13:08:37

Tom, hmmm, I have a little difficulty getting the concept of metamorphosis but it is there. I throughly like the way you have put this image together into an artistic creation.

Now it is interesting to read the other comments and learn what they are seeing.   Posted: 06/23/2022 18:37:21
