    I figured I'd give this a try to maybe see if the community understands my photography, I try to only take shots of things that strike me as different than normal. So, here is a shot, tell me what you think. If it your browser wont resize it and you really want me to, I can resize it manually and resave it. just let me know:

    its a bit of surrealism i put on it. I gave it a halo effect and a soft focus which made it glow. I felt that by doing that, I could get an almost haunted feel out of it.

    It's like a geometric fever dream. Success on the haunted look, I think. Don't quite know why I'm reminded of Fellini. Maybe the launchpad from 8 1/2 (dunno). This is an effective picture, for me. :thumbsup:

    Hmmm I see what you're going for, but I'm not sure the halo effect is necessary. I like the soft focus and the way it's all middle-grey to give it that haunted effect, but the halo just makes it look to me something went wrong in the photograph. That's just my opinion, anyway.
