About the Image(s)

I started with the background swirled texture (a slow shutter speed shot), and applied a Hue/Saturation layer to change the color. I added the Aalborg music center shot above that in Vivid Light mode at 62%, with the foreground masked out. I selected the stacked discs and added that layer in Vivid Light at 70%. I reduced brightness of some areas at the top of the frame and applied a Topaz Glow filter at low opacity.

Hi Peggy, what a mixture of lovely pastels and geometry - you have made a futuristic "Wow" architecture square of your own. I love the reflections on the pavement, and I am trying to figure to what exactly makes this authentic feel of night lit by articial lights. The bright angel statue and the circular forms in the foreground draw my eye quite strongly, and I was thinking what the image would look like without the Orig. 2 component - the wonderful atmosphere and the Walker might come out more strongly?   Posted: 07/08/2024 15:00:35

Hi Peggy, love this. The colours, the blending, the composition all come together. Taken with it as soon as I seen it. The only difficulty I have is the the person in the photo is not so obvious, considering the title is night walk.
May need darkened or contrast increased to make it stand out. On the other hand some artists do this deliberty to make the viewer search, I have seen this work many times.
Overall a real piece of artistry. Bruce.   Posted: 07/11/2024 04:25:23

Hi Peggy, thank you very much for your detailed explanation of how you created this image. I really like the tones in this image, with golden hues complemented by purple tonalities. You captured the right portion of the building, with its shapes and forms, to make the background interesting and nicely illuminate by this iridescent light.
I have to agree with kirsti and her thoughts about whether the image needs the round forms from the Orig.2. Additionally, I agree with Bruce about human figure, which I found a bit lost in the frame. Maybe you can play with your composition by removing the discs and placing the human figure waking into the image and see if that works for you.
