    ctranter vs. DaVulf ||| battling the big guy

    Mmmm well I am fairly settled in Sydney now. Have a (hopefully) stable internet connection, bought a mouse, so I'm all set to try and get back into things. Anyone up for a go? Noticed people might be busy with other battles.


    Dimensions: 785x460px
    Rotation: Allowed

    Use a piece of previous.

    Turn around time: See how things go...


    Really miss my big screens, image library and wacom tablet. Oh well.

    Sorry Juju, I hadn't seen your acceptance. I suppose it is up to CT then.

    Very nice image CT. I'm going to be the first to do this but, I do wish you had softened up the water and sky a bit. The foreground has a beautiful fantasy look about it but the background has a more "real photo look". Awesome job on the forground image. I really love the colors in this one.

    Using the stock of the moon - took the cloudy lower section and bumped the contrast with layers then roughly cut round with a feathered eraser. Inverted and set the layer to multiply for the dark mist and set the layer to screen to get a light mist. Then just duplicated those layers, adjusting opacity and erasing bits as required

    Well I really don't mind either way. But since Juju posted first I guess he gets first pick. I'll try attaching thi image for you. Nayades could never see stuff I hosted either. Weird.

    If not then I am more than happy to battle you DaVulf

    Cheers for that! Quite often I get so absorbed in just maintaining as much detail as possible I don't notice when it is working against me. I agree a softer background, certianly the sea out to the horizon would have brought out the foreground more and added to the fantasy look.

    Thanks

    Your call. I did finish a volley though since your image was so nice. I figure I might as well post it, even if you go with Juju instead.

    I don't know if I've said it before, but I know I've been thinking it with every single one of your images, ct...You're the best photomanipulator here. I get so excited when I see that you've taken up a new battle. *does happy dance*
