I am back! Here is the third photo of a set of 5 pictures on the Halloween theme.They were all worked from original pictures that I took in the past.I used Adobe Photoshop,mostly the Liquify filter.I finalised them using the Photochances and the Redfield Fractalius plugins.Hoping that you will enjoy them.I had a lot of fun to create those!

Hi michel

I've missed your creative minimasterpieces & heres another! Good pp work & avery artistic composition. Bon travail et amicalament.


Indeed a Haloween image.
I think you got the filters right, against the dark BG. The woman figure is barely perceptible

Radical PP but with a deft touch - I like that very much. This is a powerful and provocative image.

This one I like the most ... till now.
Very mysterious and intriguing


This is a delicate and fragile spirit, unlike yesterday's hostile, frighteningly powerful specter. This one I wouldn't mind having around the house. It (she) is a gentle ghost.

It's amazing the emotion that can be created by these very creative images! I'm enjoying this series very much.


Une très belle réussite....
D'un esthétisme hors du commun...!
Bravo Michel j'aime beaucoup!!!!

Hey hey, it's getting better and better - every single one is fantastic.
I realy would be interested to see the original shots :-)
Excellent work, thanks and greetings

Good morning Michel
The results of the fractalius is always fascinating, but to do this for halloween takes a lot of imagination and creativity. You made a spooky version especially with whatever was at right top, looking ghostly.
Super work.
I had never heard of photochances till today so thank you for the tip.

Hello Michael,

I'm afraid my Hallowe'en contribution looks very naive in comparison to this extremely sophisticated posting. I love the artistry that you have used here. The liquify tool has been well controlled to make this fine representation.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

I'd love to see the original base portraits to know what kind of detail, subject, and light you were playing with.
Very cool post-work, you've inspired me to go beyond what I normally do and try something as eyecatching as this!

Such a great work, very nice realization. Well done.



Bonsoir Michel,
Cette composition est impressionnante, toute en légèreté...on dirait une créature faite de bois et de feu en même temps...
Cela me rappelle la personnification de la Mort en Bretagne qu'on appelle l'Ankou et on est pas très loin d'Halloween!

Bonjour Michel,
Impressionnant ce combat de lumière et de noirceur sur cet ange déchu!
Je n'arrive à comprendre comment tu réalises une telle transparence! On peut voir à travers ton personnage, comme on le ferait avec un vrai fantôme, j'imagine!
Une suite très "punchée" pour ta série!
Bravo! Annie

Terrific ethereal energy and light effects, for a sci-fi-mystical look that exudes grace and beauty. Dangerous? I hope not:) Great creation and artistry!

Hi Michel, your macabre artwork cause a negative reaction in me, but nevertheless it is art and very imaginative, like this one. T>Y> janos

HI Michel...interesting and artistic shot..well done.

Hi Michel,
very creative artwork, the liquify filter I'm aware of, but have no knowledge of Photochances nor Fractalius,but whatever effect they produce, you have mastered them well.A joy to view
as I say I love your creativity.

Bonjour Michel,
Glad to see y'r back, your way of photography is still breathtaking :-) This one is no exception, superb idea well exposed and presented. Stunning picture my friend.

Hi Michel,

Great to see the development in your artistic work. It is fascinating to see that it is evaluation, but still remains recognizable as your work.

Groet Rob

Amazing and inspiring. Will have to explore your portfolio more and learn from your inventive images.


I love Fractalius ! I love this creature too.
Splendid result. Great use of filters and lighting.
