About the Image(s)

This is a general sunset landscape photo, a bit boring ! So I adjusted the color, contrast and blurring the empty top & bottom, let it looks more funny and art feel.
The original picture took by Fujifilm GFX 50R, Hasselblad HD 28mm lens, f/7.1 1/320s ISO 200.
Edited with Photoshop, camera raw

Louis, you turned a very usual urban scape image into something artistic. The colors are beautiful, slowly moving from blues to yellows. The buildings could be taken for something ancient instead of ultra modern. It's a really an interesting take on how to completely change the context of a photo. The only thing that was distracting for me is the moon or sun image. It makes sense in the original and maybe not in the finished product. Thanks for sharing!   Posted: 07/08/2021 17:48:52

Thanks James, and your comment...this picture was taken during sunset time, and I adjusted the shadow, highlight, clarity... for getting more contrast looks, and edited the Pixelate/Mezzotint then Path blur in PS....and then fine tune the color by Gradient Map...more details I already forgot as it's the old picture

Creativity takes courage and vision. Not many photographers would have abstracted your final image from the original. Blending in the pink and orange hues is so pleasing. I especially like the touch of emphasizing the tiny light in the top left quadrant of the image.   Posted: 07/09/2021 15:29:44

Hi Louis
You have created a very smooth, calm, and pleasing to the eye photograph. Your color arrangement is strong but very soothing and invites you to look at it and you decide what it says instead of the photo telling you. I love the waving lines gently going thru the photo. In ways, it is more of a painting than a photo. Very nice work.
Thank you for the opportunity to review it.   Posted: 07/09/2021 15:34:24

Purple Haze - something Prince would have liked! It's definitely something for a local appeal where people would be acquainted with what that area is. How would the impact of this differ if it were 16 inches wide and 9 inches high? Depends on what story you wanted to express in this fashion.   Posted: 07/15/2021 18:22:43

Hi Louis. Nice and newcreating landscaping photo to share in our landscape group. It is hard to imagine what is below the blue area of the image. The pattern curve brush obsoletely fit with the sky and it very nice. Viewers of this image may think the different thing by looking at this image. I don't have many comments on this artistic image, but I could think it could be a picture can hang on the wall in some room. Nice done.   Posted: 07/25/2021 22:54:56

This is a snap of sunset and photographed against sunshine. I like this type of shot and tried in many of my tours. The original image had a plent of scope for manipulation for example, creating a sketch of the sunset. But you have created the normal image into a artwork which is unique; but the final image has lost details of the city. But this is also a new approach of creativity.
Thanks for the creation.   Posted: 07/27/2021 13:17:50
