Arcane

Contributed By S Baker





A double exposure of myself / a tree outside taken with a pinhole camera. I flipped the image and placed it on top of the original and changed the filter so that the bottom photo showed through, and then I added a gradient map - this is the result! I thought that this photo turned out awful, so I'm really proud of the editing I did to turn it into something great.

I LOVE THIS PICTURE! i think the abstractness about it really works for the picture, i wish their was some more shadowing on it to add some depth. JEB SPHS

I really love this picture. It looks like the sky opened up. I can see the reflection shinning on it. Mbau SPHS

This is so neat! I love the color that you used-- the teal really gives it ethereal qualities and adds to the softness of the picture. I also like the contrast of the tree against the sky.

I like this picture alot. It really caught my eye. I like how it's abstract. I like how it reflects the water. The circle in the middle of the picture makes the picture even more interesting.

I love the abstract quality of this picture. The double exposure is really good, and even better considering that it was taken with a pinhole camera. Really creative and nice shot. SB SPHS

I think this is a really cool picture. The colors have a nice blend, and I like how abstract the photo is. It is not easy to tell what the picture is supposed to be, and I think that that is a good thing. Overall, very nice job. SL at SPHS

I love the color that you added to this picture. The symmetry of the lake and the trees makes it pleasing to look at. It makes you really look at it and think about what's in the picture.

Love the refection. I know a lake is a very common thing to show reflection, but the variety of shapes in the center of the photo is lovely, I also enjoy the odd, misplaced lines. Great job

This is a fantastic picture; I'm not even sure what I'm looking at at first, but that's alright. The photo is really interesting, and it made me invest time in interpreting what I was seeing. Awesome job, glad to see that you could turn something you didn't like into something that's really cool. - Ross, SPHS

I really like the cool blue color in this picture. I think that even helps the abstractness of this picture. I also like how you have that some kind of smoky cloud look in the middle of the photograph.

This is a really awesome picture, mostly because without the explanation, the view really isn't sure what it is and what is going on in the picture, but it is very puzzling to look at, which is what makes it so cool. Great editing.
