LJ shootout week 9

Most of you have already seen these images, so this is just my official post for the community.

When someone said "Halloween picture" I immediately thought of this mausoleum from one of our local cemeteries. The only problem? That picture was taken over 2 years ago, so it was a no go for use on this. It means I had to get back out there and get more pictures of it. The major problem? It's either been clear and sunny or pouring rain or grey and dismal. No interesting clouds like the first one!

It meant a fair amount of editing had to be done. And so, here's the finished product:

halloween


What did I do to the photo? Well, I removed the boring sky and turned that transparent, pasted it onto a photo with an ominous sky, upped the contrast considerably, changed the tint from B&W to more sepia-toned, added a little glow, and, of course, a big ol' lightning bolt. I also edited out the graffiti that some asshole was nice enough to spray on it. I used both Photoshop and Picnik to make the alterations. Here is the original photo. So much for my "never use photoshop" thing, eh?

Nicely done.

Now I'm reconsidering my Halloween pic that I enhanced and considering a different shot which I just make scary as fuck.

Ooo I look forward to this! Though, admittedly, I'm worried that some of these may contain arachnid creatures which I'm scared to death of! lol
