Ooh, that's kinda surreal and freaky looking! How didya do it?
ohh man, reminds me of 3D Studio Max or Maya artwork, how did you do it?
sorry i shoulda posted the details!
85mm prime lens
contrast adjusted & slight sepia toning in photoshop.
I like it a lot!!!!!!!!
I think its great... Not an ordinary thing to photograph which makes it stand out more, for me at least.. I never think to take shots like that.
holy crap mark :shock:
that is firggin amazing, and tottaly not the norm from you, it's great to see something else besides NZ beaches (not to say I dont like your beach shots, I love them too )
how did you get the background like it? cause I thoguht it was ps at first, cause it looks like it's zooming out or something...
I like it. I confess I thought you'd done motion blur or something in PS at first, which diminished the impact it had on me. Then I noticed that f stop and thought, Well now! :cheer:
Q: Why the decision to go sepia? I think it softens what should be a tack-sharp image in stark B&W. Just curious.
It's a great image, regardless.
thanks for comments
terri - here's a version in colour and straight greyscale:
I totally agree, the greyscale puts the most emphasis on the razor sharpness of the razor tape, though the colour also looks sharp with the blueness of the blades.
I do love DOF factor of 1.8, however I would have to admit that this type of image is quite hard to do well[/i ] in pshop! Typically it can take up 3-5 layers just to get the DOF right (not to mention time!) - whew - now my camera takes care of that for me! Wohooo I love that new lens!
