Sunny Perspective
Hi TL! Just experimenting on cut-out borders, embossing, and shadows :)
I know some will not like the 3 square cut-outs but I like it this way :)

Model: Canon PowerShot A640
Exposure Time: 1/5
F-Stop: f/2.8
Focal Length: 7300/1000 mm
Metering Mode: Pattern

Pp work:
Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3
1. add eye stock image
2. erase eye perimeter with 50% opacity
3. merge Layers
4. cut 3 squares
5. add border, bevel and emboss, and shadows
6. resize, sharpen, and resize

Quote of the Day:
"Our eye must constantly measure, evaluate. We alter our perspective by a slight bending of the knees; we convey the chance meeting of lines by a simple shifting of our heads a thousandth of an inch…. We compose almost at the same time we press the shutter, and in placing the camera closer or farther from the subject, we shape the details – taming or being tamed by them." -Henri Cartier-Bresson

Hi Fred ,
Absolutely outstanding. Superb details, wonderful colour and an excellent crop. Nice strong PP work enhances this image and does not distract the eye from it. Very creative.

Hello Fred,

Ok, so you've put the eye to sunflower :-)
Like the PP done here.
Nice shot of sunflower, sharp and colorful. TFS


Hi to you too...
As my humble opinion, Freddie... In a way, some kind of balancing 'factor' needs to be included to make an 'impact' in creative design. Here you made it with 3 square cut-outs on the right place.

The flower with an eye, was totally another story to me. :D. You created humorous artwork. While others might think this is freaky, I happened to laugh and having fun enjoying your good idea. I see this as a humorous because of the main color... yellow, is a happy color to me.

Fantastic! Nice pp job here Freddie, well done...


Hie Fred,

Good PP you've done here. I like the eyes popping out from the mid of the sunflower. It's like you're taking a shot of a cat with the sunflower costume.


Hi Fred,

Indeed I nice experiment - and I do like the 3 cut-out squares.
Of course it does help that you started out with a good picture.

What abeatiful imagination and super concept.
Great shot
bravo mon ami Réal.

WOW Fred! What imagination and what a neat idea. The three squares caught my eye immediately and I liked it instantly. As for the eye - well it really is neat and conveys your message very well - I like the quote and according to that my "measure and evaluate" humble opinion would be WONDERFUL - photo as well as PP editing! Well done!
