    This image was captured in the Manitoba Legislature, here in Winnipeg. I used to like the colour version more, but now I seem to prefer the B&W (which might work better with this old heater).

    What do you think?

    I like the B&W one becuase the true color is pretty obnoxious.

    I would like it better if you included more of the heater...

    It's more of a monotone than a black and white.

    My vote is for the color one, with more texture. Contrast sharpen it.

    I personally think it looks cool as a diptych. I'd just just stack them like you posted them and put a black border between and around the shots (and maybe up the contrast on the BW).

    IMO, there's not enough of interest in either one.

    This was part of an exercise that required abstract images. Also, this was just the heater against a blank wall..

    How about ths?

    That's a cool idea, but I wouldn't know how to do that.

    Uhmm... Thanks, I guess. :D

    Color. Try and PS that annoying spot though, in the middle. See what I'm talkin' about?

    Here's how it came out. If you don't like it, that's cool. Just an idea I thought you might think about.

    [​IMG]

    Here's how I did it:
    1) Open one of the photos
    2) Go to "Add Border" and added 80 px to each side (except the bottom, where I added 40).
    3) Open the other picture
    4) Add 80 px border on every side but the top (where you add 40).
    5) Create new image, with twice the height of the bordered pictures and the same width.
    6) Copy and paste one of the photos and line it up in top or bottom corners
    7) Repeat 6 with other picture and other corners.

    plentygood, that looks awesome!


    I am 100% Photoshop-illiterate... I can't remove anything from any of my pics :)
